It is possible, as long as you got the state of the art BO skills and ship weaponry for your ship as you progressed. Keep in mind that even if your and admirial, the TOS ship only has 11,000 hull and that will never change. The tier 5 ships have hull in the hundred thousands so when your shields fail your ship would be a 5 shot kill in PvP.

Keep in mind that you only get 3 weapon slots for that ship and it is firm. You would need some pretty powerful phasers and BO skills if you were to stand up to a Killigon player in PvP if you wanted to live.

Pleas don't be embarressed by posting; many VA and LG rank players prefer to play with thier lower level ships because of its appearance; if you want to do it it is just fine.

Hard to pull off, since the T1 ship is limited to 3x Ensign BOff stations. HYT I, Jam Sensors I, and EPtS or Eng Team I, plus your captain powers, probably.

Eh...no. Birds of Prey have 24,000 hull. Raptors have 27,000 hull. Escorts and science ships have 30,000 hull. Cruisers (UFP) and Battle Cruisers (KDF) have 39,000 hull. Carriers have 42,000 hull.

None of them have "hundred thousands" in hull strength. Though you are correct that the TOS cruiser would be an easy kill by comparison. By the way, the Runabout has 5,000 hull, and the default Light Cruiser has 10,000 hull. (just for reference)

Well, you can level up simply by not leaving earth at all, simply by taking the academy quiz over and over each day.

But there's a different approach - use what ship you want and do what you can do with it, skipping the missions that you won't be able to finish.

If you want to stick by your approach you can find 100 years old gear to equip your ship with aswell ...

Go to YouTube and search on ausmonauts. They are an Australian fleet who beat all the elite missions in tier 1 ships, including no win scenario, crystal entity etc.

I am hiink you'll find no such thing. The primary opposition to tier 5 Connie's has come from cbs who banned cryptic from doing it.
