I find that the Galor is almost a perfect combination of an escort and cruiser. I started on an escort and absolutely love them... so getting into the Galor wasnt much of a change for me. Just had to modify one of my tac Boff skills around a bit to switch from cannons to beams. All my other Boff's pretty much stayed the same.
I moved my Eng from the Defiant Retrofit to the Galor, and haven't looked back. With the my skill tree buffs and 1 RCS console, I get a turn rate of 20.1 degress per second. With 2 RCS consoles it goes up to 22 degress turn rate. The weapons that come on it are desent also. I actually managed to get two Galors, so I have 7x of the Sprial Disrputors and 1x purple Quantum Torpedo.
I love my Galor, and will not be getting out of it any time so. Also, on a quick note, it looks really bad *** with all the borg parts installed.
The Spiral Wave Disruptors are Level-less Purples, with (i'm not in game atm) Accx2 as a bonus proc. They do what they say they do, they're phasers and disruptors in a nice little package, but they only take bonuses from disruptor modifying devices. the ship itself is fun to fly, it turns almost like an escort, and it tanks like a cruiser, it's a tank's dream, OP'd? a little I think.
From what I can tell with my Tac... the Galor feels like a Destroyer... fast, agile, moderately hard hitting (especially so in PvE). Haven't really tried it in PvP yet. With basic Aux to Dampeners 1, and AP Alpha, I've boosted the turn rate to almost 30. This thing can turn... That's my observations.
