# 1 Dreadnought Saucer Sep.
09-21-2012, 03:46 PM
Hello all

After some time after the latest Ask Cryptic , I'm still waiting the Galaxy X Dreadnought Saucer Sep. They said that it was going to be released in an update soon but its going to take long? because I want so much to play with this ship but without the saucer sep. it makes impossible.

Is there any release date +-? or at least this month??


Thx

I don't think there is any real recent info...they were planning to release it like early this year. But because there were problems with a Galaxy pack they were planning and they put it off.

I thought the official description of the Galaxy Dread stated that it could no longer separate because they installed that big-ass lazor cannon through it, and that therefore, ripping off the saucer section to fling at enemies like a giant kamikaze frisbee is out.

No they were working on it. It has been seen on tribble afew times and I believe somewhere in the description of the lance it refrences a "shotgun" mode for saucer sep.

Too lazy to hunt it down right now tho.

Did some hunting myself and dug up this:

But I recall the shotgun thing too, short range powerfull blast with wide arc. The Dread saucer sep never got finished yet because of some techincal aspects.

Added via Edit:

The STOked episode featuring the Dreads saucer sep, links to the time index in which the Dread chat starts.

Note that this was from Feb 2012 and is not recent.

No saucer sep for the Dreadnought. This would be the final nail in the Gal-Rs coffin

I do remember them saying something about setting the Dread up for the saucer sep. there was some kind of graphical issue that they were having to work through. As far as I know it is still being worked on. but no there is no release date yet.
*Me*Why don't you just step away from the weapons console. You and I both know that you couldn't hit that cube, even if it was right in front of us.
*Junior Tactical Officer* But sir the cube IS right in front of us.
*Me* EXACTLY! Its right in front of us and you still missed it! Just step away from the console.

I don't think a "graphical issue" would keep them. I mean, the saucer sep on the "Monarch"-skin on the Gal-R still doesn't work visually. Since 2+ years.
