Actually I switched to the raptor, I believe it has great turn ability, and the firepower is pretty awesome to. When I made captain I bought the new vor'cha cruiser and the turn rate us slow but the firepower is awesome. But it is totally up to you.
There are ways to keep a bop from exploding. I model mine on my Defiant but the Defiant has significantly more survivability that a bop. I have yet to try a Raptor.
OK, maybe I need to start working on the Defiant build. Since the BoP has universal slots, do you recommend splitting it between all three classes? I'm considering a 3 tac, 2 engineer build. I even thought about a 4 tac, 1 eng build, but think that will be even squishier. Since Boffs are universal, I don't understand why console slots aren't as well.
It detects federation spys within "The House of KULAR"..
Captain Grace was or is on a secret mission. She is so deep undercover and cannot relay a messages back to home base,if fear she will give away her identity within the Federation looking for that one eyed CARDASSIAN...
