It's usually provided in the FAQ, which is going up shortly. It's a minimum of 4, like our other boxes.

Do the Destroyer and the Cruiser have their own bridges?
I keep hearing a darkling version of this myself.

Glad that all the QQ is about the Leech ... .

Gods forbid someone notice that we got Tac ships with Sensor Scan .
You know .. , one of the two useful offensive powers that the Sci's have ?

Yeah , nothing to see here , carry on .
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .

Knowing the federation crowd and my experience with discussing the B'rel that disruptor nanite thing isn't going to go well at all.

Been looking for those particular consoles. Could be mighty interesting especially with cloaking to become more common in both PVE and PVP.

Since , I cannot find the words to express my joy in seeing Lockboxed Traits (the first of many I'm sure) , allow me to say that this is how it makes me feel .

Well here's something I wasn't expecting. Do these show up in that third unused trait section (special?) on the character sheet? I guess we know what that section was for now if I'm correct. Thanks for the information.
