Hi all it`s James!

I am a 28/29 rank and am looking at which ship to go for! I am a tactical officer and have 1 tactical bridge officer. 2 engineering and 1 science. My tactical abilities are cannon rapid fire mark 1, torpedo spread mark 2. I can`t remember my other bridge officer abilities so contact me in-game email and i`ll give them to you then! If not watch this space for more posts!!

I`m looking a intrepid class and using a mixture of proton trops, dual and single beam arrays, i`ll use this for PvE and episodes up to the next rank that allows me to get a new ship.

My in-game email is: James@stargazer918

Some advice please!!

James A. Highland

Um... What?
You are in a position to use one of the most entertaining ships in the game and you want to fly WHAT?

Dude, ffs, get a Defiant. They're small, quick, agile, and hit HARD. Add on to that, you're a tac. So you have APA, and FOMM. Combine those with that little ship, and crap will just melt in front of you.
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.

I think I`ll get the Tactical escort after all as just keep upgrading the weapons and kit on it.

I can always buy a Intrepid class just for flyin from system to system anywhey!

I appreciate your help!

Thank you ever so much!!

Intrepid can't utilize the abilities of a tactical captain to the fullest extent honestly. Yea you'll hit harder in bursts, but overall, the Defiant is a much...much...MUCH better class of ship vs the Intrepid for a tactical captain.

is that you can't properly teabag your defeated opponent

You`ve helped my to sway my mind!

I have decided to get the Tactical escort instead of the intrepid class! Okay the intrepid looks beautiful but i`m not a science officer so I can`t utilise all it`s abilities! I`d rather go guns blazing than have asthertical looks like a hooker!

Thank you fellow trek players!

Yeah I would also suggest Defiant. It's what I'll do for my Tac Alt. Although my main ran around in an Intrepid/Nebula when she was Captain. Oh and for the "titles" just keep posting and you'll be, 'promoted.'

I had no choice but to grave dig a thread on the failfiant. I do not see why people love this fail of a ship when it just dies and has no damage, I wish I had picked a galaxy, at least than I could do space missions again

You rise in rank with the number of posts you make. You can't change your rank manually.

Edit: Just noticed this was already answered. My bad.

Porthos is not amused.
