it's pretty forgiving not the best ship ever but can still hold it's own can take a pounding pretty well. and if need be i can ditch the extra weight of the saucer and get the added DPS from it and then the star drive acts as a heavy escort
I love my Galaxy-R because it's the underdog, yet I tank STF's and Fleet actions like a boss. Regularly holding more aggro, taking more damage, and tossing out more heals than the other cruisers in the instances.
And let's not forget, it's the best looking ship in the game. (Well, I think it is)
I love my Bortas because when it warps in, it looks menacing.
Like, if you were about to start a fight with some Klingons, and that thing warped in, you'd be like "Ruh-roh..."

For me it's my Galor, I don't normally have cruisers on tacticals but it works so well, with power set to shields it's a monster, very good at tanking and attack, but put it on attack power and boy does it cut through large groups of enemies (at the expense of shield power).
I'm itching to test out the B'rel Retrofit and Guramba which I bought at the sale just recently. Leveling a new character so I can get the best out of them as possible.
Federation ships don't do it for me, but my favourite out of them is the Defiant-R as I'm a tactical man and to me it suits my play style the best.

Well I think for Class its the Constitution: Why? "ST II. like some others Starships that are Iconic, trampfrators. Stile. This thread prooves we need to be able to rank up hour Ships. Here 90% are saying the Fav ship is the one that does the most damage, takes the most damage, or blowsup the most things. Few are saying anything about stile. It took me dozens of years to get used to the Galaxy, and then they changed it. In this game We have had way more fun with the Heavy cruiser from Commander than anyother, When captain came up we got the galaxy. However, My Helmsman drives Cruisers as Mareo Andrettie, While the Captain is way to busy screaming Getout and push, Other people are Scrapping my ships. Now thats something, it be fun to add reckage from destroyed ships. At least I could clogup the Other guys intakes. I've found out that Eng'Capts, can tank Escorts, out fly turn shoot anyother ships for the Size. My pore Cruisers and Sci ships, just get vaporized. Case in point one PvP match and I got slapped round, for hundreds of thousands, damage, Reckage. Everyware. Funny Funny! Hey and Really 88Torps! should call that the Piano gambit?
This. A thousand times this.
I fly an Excelsior refit purely because it's my favourite ship in the Trekverse. I'm just lucky that the devs love it so much that they gave it uber stats so it could keep up with the Soverign and other more modern ships.
The fist chance I got, I grabbed a Consititution refit off of the shipyard and I loved it. It may be old, and gets its ass kicked more often than not, but at least it does it in style. I've kept it upgraded with the cast-offs from my newer ships so that it has all level VIII thru X equipment. I still take it out every now and again to remind the Klingons that it still has the power to whoop their asses to Sto'vo'kor and back. People regularly comment on how awesome it is to see something that old take on Neg'Vars and come out on top.
