A little elaboration on what "turning you into an escort" means:
  1. Your crew size is set to 100 (the others stay in the saucer).
  1. Your turning rate roughly doubles.
  1. The +5 to all systems power bonus is replaced by a +15 to Weapons bonus
  1. Your shield modifier is reduced from 1.0 to 0.9
  1. Your inertia rating decreases, allowing for faster acceleration and stops

However, unlike an Escort, you retain the 4 Forward/4 Aft weapons arrangement, and do not gain the Escort's ability to mount Dual Cannons/DHC, so you will be fighting with Cruiser type weaponry.

It's easier to program a leveling block than it is to create a hard set cap and then break the wall and add more levels.


I just hope when they do increase the level cap they allow us to transfer some of the points we've built up back into the level SP pool.


Not all, that would be broken as hell, I'm sitting on 5mil points as it is.

They should let us turn in extra Expertise for Fleet Marks or something like we get to do with Duty Officer Commendation XP. Maybe one Fleet Mark per several hundred Expertise or so.
