Its another Fleet escort, just one that came from Cybertron.

How to fight it? Stay out of the front arc!! If you're an FAE, grab him. If you're a HEC, Danube him.

If you're in the front arc? Impulse Cap Cell outta there. You should have that console mounted ever since timeship craziness hit the Prime universe...

Doesn't help. It has 360 degree multi-target nigh-on aimbot accurate phaser lance array. It can also strip your shields entirely and make it it's own. This is not 'just another fleet escort'. Treat it at minimum as dangerous as a time ship/D'kora.

Oh look, another OP escort. Why am I not surprised? Granted it's a 1k day vet award. But still. This borders on just obscene.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.

Agreed.

Chimera class? More like 'I-Win' class

Looks nice, like others i will equip it as per my fleet patrol escort. Need to play around with the consoles though. I just went lifetime. I have paying subs for a few months and enjoying the game so what the hell, get it all now. I like the look of it and looking forward to seeing how the consoles work.

This build is designed with an Engineer Captain in mind, but I believe it should also be viable for Tactical Captains without much change.

Due to RL issues, I won't be able to try the ship out for another day or so, so right now this is all theory. All critique & ideas are appreciated! Would love to hear what other Captains think on this one!



Chimera Build Design Goals:
  • Overall, use the ship for it's unique features.
  • Be able to switch between "Tank" & "Damage" modes easily.
  • Use only the LtC Universal slot for swapping.
  • Function adequately if need arises to switch to a mode that doesn't match LtC.
  • Enjoy Cannons


And now, the build:

Fore Weapons
1x Photon Torpedo
1x Phaser Dual Beam Bank
1x Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons
1x Phaser Quad Cannons

Aft Weapons
1x Phaser Beam Array
2x Phaser Turret

Ship
MACO Deflector
Borg Engine
MACO Shield

Devices
Engine Battery
Subspace Field Modulator
Red Matter Capacitor

Engineering Consoles
1x Monotanium Alloy
1x Neutronium Alloy
1x RCS Accelerator

Science Consoles
1x Chimera Console
1x Field Gen

Tactical Consoles
1x Borg Console
3x Phaser Relay


Core Officers
Com Tac: BFAW1, TS2, APO1, APD3
Lt Eng: EPtS1, EPtW2
Lt Sci: TSS1, HE2
Ens Tac: TT1

Chimera Officers
LtC Tac: BO1, CSV1, TS3
LtC Eng: EPtS1, RSP1, AtSIF2

Duty Officers
1x Warp Core Engineer
1x Damage Control Engineer
1x Tholian Warfare Specialist
2x Conn Officer - Tac Team

This versus a 'fleet escort' (fleet version of the blockade)
I've been using the fleet escort ever since I got to VA back in july of the first year (the original and then the fleet version). I can tank (I can equal the damage output of nearly any other escort in healing), plus have the ability to do a massive alpha strike. I'm wondering how the fleet escort stacks up versus this. I noticed the 0.9 shield modifier vs the FE's 0.99, but since the servers are down, can't look at anything else.

What would you guys suggest? Change to this or keep my shiny FE?

Basically the Chimera is a weaker alternative to the D'kora. One fewer console, turns faster, tanks worse and one fewer weapon hardpoint. Heck, the D'kora effectively gets five tactical consoles while in battle mode.

Yeah, but the D'Kora doesn't have the 'I win' modes that the 'I-Win' class has.
