Putting a Sci captain in a bugship is going to be downright nasty very soon.

Just think about it...the 3-part Jem'Hadar Set bonus removes buffs from your target. Use lolaron weapons for the damage boost, and stack a couple of purple SNB doffs, your opponents won't even be able to launch an alpha strike or use any sort of buffs at all.

I agree with you 100%.

Though you might have a point with the DBB + BO3... with the turn rate, might be fun...
The Excelsior cannot use all those abilities at the same time. The Galor can. Remember, it has a universal lieutenant slot. That means you can have a Lt. Cmdr AND a Lieutenant as tactical boffs. The Galor is simply the best tactical cruiser in the game now, unless you count the Galaxy dreadnought, though the phaser lance doesn't quite make it better.

i would be more curious abaut if there will be any ways in the future to optain the bug xD, im a free 2 play player who didnt had the chance to get it, altough i love my escort n kinda wana try the bug out.

As for the galor, already workin on those boxes got few in my inventory to open again maybe i will have luck, but its a crusier, the bug is more like an escort. Comparing an Escort and a Crusier is like comparing a pen and a pencil, -> pointless , both have their usefullness elswhere IMO.

Well, I have a Galor and have been a long fan of escorts since I started playing this game. I don't have bug, but right now I'm mostly flying my Galor. It's the most escort like cruiser you can get, IMO. It can't turn like the bug, but only the BoP can match that thing, turn wise. Honestly, it flies like a slightly beefier Fleet Escort.

But I will submit that weapon wise, it's a silly comparison entirely. One can support DHCs, the other maxes at SCs.

If you fly it and load it like a beamed out fleet escort, you will enjoy it a lot more than trying to force it into a DHC crazy defiant mold.
