I've been waiting for a Cruiser-Escort hybrid since i started playing STO in feb 2010. Since then i always felt that Cryptic made Cruisers way too passive and escorts - well i just hate escorts.
I always wanted to get a ship which is in between those two extemes.
In addition, i find it looks really nice and pleasing, which happens only rarely with cryptics designs.


And now this ship is only availlable to someone who has subscribted for 1000 days or is willing to pay 200$ for it?
Sorry but i am really annoyed.

The Ship flies nice and has a great BO slots that makes me honestly want to give up my Raptor of 3 years.

However, I HATE the look of that ship. To me, it is the contender for the ugliest ship in STO. No joke, it litearally looks like a BoP that crashed into a junkyard and got rear ended by a Raptor. Or something a kid would create with Legos.

And that transformation? I was expecting the nacelles to extend and those guns adjust into firing position. Instead you got some ridiculous green things popiong out of the hull? What the hell is that nonsense? And structrually, where do people work at in that hull when it's in the stowed position?


Honestly, because of the looks, I'd say the Klingons lose out with the Destroyer. Else, I'd likely fly it. So hopefully we can get a new skin to replace that hideous thing.

"She's not the prettiest gal at the dance, but she'll still turn a few heads."

I like it even if it does look a little odd. I find it grows on me.
Besides with the addition of a Battle Cloak we KDF have no room to complain too loudly.
Since its a gift for long term subscribing, we have even less reason to complain.
Its about time a Lifer actually carried some benefit besides a stipend that was quickly outpaced by the games economy and other changes over time.

I have no idea, as I have not checked in a while.

Really? I love the way it looks. I also love how it flies. This ship is amazing, and I have been rocking so much face with it. It looks like a mini-Bortas to me.

I got a chance to play with the 1000 day Klink ship last night and was just blown away. This thing is amazing! I got on, loaded it up, and was like, "OMG it has Battle Cloak?" WIN! It's a blast flying this thing around and using the tactical mode makes me giggle a little inside every time. Great job on it, and i'm very pleased. Hat's off to the Cryptic dev's who made it.

I need to get used to the Battle Cloak. I keep accidentally tapping it mid-combat... which spells death, generally. Since I ditched BoPs as soon as I could, on every character so far, I'm just not used to it being something that actually works in combat...
