Q: Jaruslothran - When will cruisers be able to tank more effectively than a science vessel. [It] seems odd that the tank class can't out tank the support class.
A: Balance is very important for us, and a very high priority. We are currently working on a lot of significant balance changes that should address this and many other issues for both PvP and PvE.

The difference is that I can shield tank, but once you get through them, I'm as thin as tissue paper. Science vessels are SUPPOSED to have the best shields by design. I don't see where this person is complaining as I am regularly out-tanked by cruisers. I must be doing something wrong.....

EDIT: I can already see what's coming...instead of giving cruisers love, they're gonna hit science vessels with the nerfbat which will really ruin my day. The only thing I have going for me out there is a crapton of shields and a bag of tricks. A bag of tricks that just about anyone can spec in. Take away my shields, and I'm just a third rate escort, at best...

Although I did finally hit RA last night, so tonight I'll have a chance to test out my new ship(s).

Yes, I got both RA science vessels...can't figure out which one I like more

Personally I prefer the Deep space science vessel. 1 extra engi slot with emergency power to shields gives me the ability to keep EPTS up almost all the time.

Oh don't get me wrong....I am sometimes astounded by my ship's ability to hold up under fire. As long as I can keep shields topped off, I'm pretty much unstoppable. But take one vector down, and it's pretty much game over as it doesn't take too many torpedoes to make my warp core explosively unhappy.

So I guess I can see where there is some complaint, but if your science person is doing their job right, they're supporting the cruiser in doing their job. That's what makes the good cruisers jockeys GREAT. Is having a friendly science ship nearby to keep them healthy and happy....

Ya'll still recruiting for your fleet? Been meaning to join one, finally got to the upper ranks of the game and been hoping to do some teamwork, looking for a cool fleet to join.

If you ask me, I think they already tried to use the nerfbat on science vessels by having the borg cubes not respond to viral matrix or scramble sensors.

Personally, I really hated Cruisers starting with the Cmdr level, and preferred the Science Vessels until RA, and am now back to using Cruisers. Now I play both Deepspace Science and StarCruiser, but never as a healer, just a little tank and CC. Can't figure out which I prefer, tbh.

I've been in escorts all the way. Just now trying out the sovereign as a tactical officer. Also just made a science alt and am looking forward to getting into the science ships and giving them a try.

I really need to play my Klingon some. He is feeling neglected. I think the only reason I really want to play a Klingon is to fly the Negh'Var though. I love that ship. Such a cool design.
