Not necessarily. The console layout for a healer or tank is quite impressive, and superior to the Oddy.

But, the Oddy BOFF layout is better.

It wouldn't be a horrible ship.

But, you're right - it would be very expensive for very little return.

Well my point was, you can make the exact same layout with Odyssey, there is nothing spectacular with it. They will have same console layout also (op odyssey). Odyssey costs 2000, Galaxy-R 1600, you will need components from C-Store for Fleet Galaxy-R and I'm pretty sure it will costs more than 400.

I am waiting for the rumored Galaxy pack to play arround with the ship at all. It would be nice if there were a version with more science built in.

Oh, I agree with you wholeheartedly. Vast cost for such a tiny return.

Lt Commander science instead of the Ensign eng. and I would fly it. Turnrate is ok for a fat cruiser.
Well, don't forget how they were used as battleships during the Dominion war. Any ship can be used for exloration and all ships have science capability. The Enterprise was the first of its kind and it came out during a time of peace. That peace was over after dealing with the borg and ending up on several stalemates with the Romulans. When the Dominion War broke out, Galaxy Class ships were repurposed as battleships and some were retrofited with phaser blisters on the Engine nacelles.

Well, just as I expected after reading all the threads, I have seen more negative thoughts on the Galaxy_R than positive. These are not new complaints. That being said, there have yet to have been a Dev chiming in defense of what they did to the Galaxy-R's. I new i would spark a large debate, and hope to get the attention of the Devs to do something about it.


To those who think I am noob (I have been in this game since the beginning) for using the Galaxy R in PVP, come try me. Know the name "Li Xao Long."

No, it isn't.


Ody Ops Cruiser = 5 / 2 / 3
Fleet Gal-R = 5 / 2 / 3



With it's superior BOFF options, and 1.15 vs. 1.1 base shield modifier the Odyssey Ops cruiser wins as more shields is better than more hull.


The Sci Ody is the superior option to both of them, with a 4th Sci console and Sensor Analysis which is stronger than any single (or even 2) Tac Consoles.


In fact, if you own the Ody pack - you already own nearly everything any of the new Fleet Retrofits could give you mechanically aside from 1 point of base Turn rate for the SC & AC and 2K Hull for the Fleet Gal-R.

EDIT* The AC also has 4 Tac Consoles vs. the Tac Ody only having 3.

I thought Oddy only had 4 Engineer consoles. My mistake.

Ult, I know this is slightly off topic but what's your take on the new Fleet Assault cruiser? The one with no sci slot and a universal LT. I'm very interested on it as a tank who wants maximum possible DPS.

Where are we in STF?

well usually in a team with 4 other Galaxys
(we WIN consistantly and get 75% of optionals)

Sometimes in a pug but only if that pug does not abuse us on arrival (and it happens)

Where are we in PVP?
avoiding it
because a Galaxy captain is USUALLY a Role player or a PVE player
and we do not want to spend time blowing someone on the same team (federation) into Tiny tiny bits

AS to the ODDY being the be all and end all
Well its not

oh its a little more popular
but it steers like a COW and anyway its not A Galaxy

A team with 5 Galaxy classes (or 3 Galaxys and a couple of Nebulas) can deal with pretty much any mission .

And look good doing it

If you like the oddy fly the oddy
if you like the galaxy Fly the Galaxy

if you fly ESCORTS or anything elsw don't try and tell the Cruiser boys and Girls what WE should fly .

you don't see us saying "the defiant is underpowered and needs 6 foreward and 6 aft weapon slots and a commander tactical slot" do ya ??
