I disagree. I think it is every bit as capable and even more versitile than an escort. The uni slots give it flexibility. Is it superior? Maybe not but it's an excellent utility player. Can a fleet escort switch out a boff and give a team a sci capability like gravity well?

With one additional aft weapon it would be close to perfect. I only flew it for a short hop but the maneuverability was outstanding.

Its is not worth the LTS to get the ship or any ship i think for that amount of money. I bought the LTS the last time it was on sale because it was a good deal and I knew I would be playing this game for a very long time!

The ship however is not the best looking but I took it on some STFs and it was tanky, maneverable and put out the fire power in both modes. I would fly it again.

The ship is really meant for LTS players who typically will have a large cadre of characters and cannot afford to buy a C-Store, lockbox or fleet ship for each and every character. For instance, three of my freshly minted VAs use the Chimera since it is better than the retrofit VA ships.

Looking at the rear of the chimera it does look like it should have a single launch bay which i think this ship needs to make it competitive.

and thats my two cents. lol

Needs options to make this ship look better!

It is rather ugly and I will not fly it anymore until we get skin options!

I have been playing around with the set up,i really like the ship but something just seems amiss.Shields are hard to keep up even when mixing sets.
