Wanting the Akira to be more canon-compatible has nothing to do with creating an I-Win-Ship. The same discussions are about the Super-Galaxy people want, neglecting 7 seasons of TNG.

Personally I like the Thunderchild-design, although the console is not quite that nice, not because of its usefulness, but because it's encouraging even more canon violation. I get sick when I see the Akira, Promtheus and Gryphon being equipped with cannons, flying around like a StarWars X-Wing. We are talking about gigantic starships, not fighters. Which leads to my point: the Akira has - in canon-configuration - several beam arrays, is designed as a heavy cruiser and therefore could easily intercept fighters, torpedoes and the like with FAW.
If someone prefers to abandon canon, let him do so, but don't reward it with another item to compensate canon violations.

Last but not least: make it T5!

Hmmm Akira retrofit...

Console - Torpedo Spread IV - engages up to 11 targets in 180 fire arc?

Well the t5 akira and nova were requestet for a VERY VERY long time now, and no official statement why they dont add them. They just said "its not intendet".... god knows why. Both are modern ships and have for sure more place in a modern fleet then the Excelsior.

About the point deffense... it has little in common with the pre order tac console.

The preorder was VERY efficient against plasma torpedos and mines, and this 100% of the time (I use it on my sci and ENg, but on an escort.... other tac bonusses are more improtant).
The Thunderchild console gives you a massive damage against pets and frigattes all arround you for a short duration. Sure it shoots plasma torpedos and mines, too, but just 10 seconds between the 3 minutes CD instead of all the time.


Basicly, its no replacement, its simply not the same.

Good to know, thank you. I definitely stand corrected there.

I am still annoyed at this decision, though; the Excelsior is available for Commander and VA ranks, so I expected the Akira to be so as well, when I saw it on the calendar.

Love the thunderchild indeed with the akira hull it is pure awesome sauce (it flattens the ship, whihc looks much better imo)

As for tier 5, I doubt we see one soon not do I greatly desire one (far ratter see the even more unlikely Achilles) but if it is there it sure will make for a beautiful ship to fly at VA

Cryptic!!!!!!!!!!! You are most likely not aware of how many users I've heard complaints about this particular part of the game, and your decisions.
