I finally gave up on my Gal X, which was to be the only ship my first toon was to command. Its just too slow and fat, and I feel like I can never get its Spinal Lance off when I wanted to. I never cloaked with it, took it into PvP once and had my noob ass handed to me with inferior gear.
I wanted a more agile ship to bear the Zorro name. I created my third toon, a Sci, knowing Al planned on making the Vesta class a sci ship. But when they announced the Tac version too, with its deflector phaser, I knew Captain Conquest had his new Zorro! I then created my only Eng toon, Capt Rider (who was Conquest's XO) to get use out of the third ship in the pack. I renamed the Gal X to USS Diego de la Vega, just in case Al gives me a reason to pull him out of mothballs. But my hopes are no longer up. Separation means nothing to me, that ship shouldnt separate as a tactical manuever IMO.
STO: @AGNT009 Since Dec 2010
Capt. Will Conquest of the U.S.S. Zorro
Unless they allow the Galaxy X to use the saucer seperation console from the Galaxy refit, I don't like the idea. That would essentially negate any reason to purchase the Galaxy refit, and I think that would piss off a lot of Galaxy fanboys. I personally don't see a good reason for a Galaxy X to seperate because of that big freaking cannon they attached to the bottom of it. My primary uses a Galaxy X, and I find it to be a damn good ship. I allocate a lot of power to weapons, so it can't take as many hits as most of your Galaxy X's out there, but I can dish out a lot of damage, and I have most of my abilities allocated to fix the survivability issues. I love my Galaxy X, and even when it shows up as an NPC, it's still a badass ship. I was playing Hive Onslaught (Elite) and a Galaxy X showed up to fight the Queen when someone popped their fleet support. That ship really made the difference during that battle.
