If I were actually emotionally invested in this plebeian exercise I sometimes pretend is a game, I would weep at the sight of someone who can afford XII's and [Acc]x3's would use it to outfit this asinine ship. As it stands, I'll just laugh nervously and inwardly cringe.

Is it wrong that I read this post to the voice of Tuvok? An attempt to portray eloquence without any understanding of the matter at hand. And you certainly have no idea of the Dreadnoughts potential this thread highlights.
Your arrogance is typical of someone who cannot fathom the superiority of others, those who invest time and resources to deride the highest possible result from something you have dismissed as useless. If you cannot see the effectiveness of an Escort style DPS Tank (which essentially, is what the Galaxy Dreadnought is) then you sir need to start again from page one of this thread, and start again in Start Trek Online.


Now, back on topic:
I run the Galaxy Dreadnought cruiser in the same way (albeit without the cloak console).
Currently using 4x DC's at the front, 4x Turrets at the back with 4x RCS consoles, 3x Phaser Relays, Field generator and Emitter Array, MACO set, Devices to suit the current 'mission' and Boff's for a damage resistant tank.
Acceptable turning rate in combat without relying on the cloak/ambush tactic or Evasive Maneuvers.

For someone who claims to not be emotionally invested you sure do have a lot of passion towards hating it....which is emotion. Plebeian? let me guess....college student? McDonalds patty flipper? LOL! So when you are not pretending it's a game does it become something else? Are you currently in a padded room?

Dude, the Galaxy-X is the only cool incarnation of the Galaxy there ever was. Its certainly cooler than any other fed or kdf cruiser (although not quite as effective for most pilots). I specially love how the show's ship designers gave a nod to the Starfleet Battles games and made canon a Tri-Nacelled design! Where's my Dreadnought version of the Sovy Cryptic?? Money couldn't fly out of my wallet fast enough for that! Heck, make the Sovy D-nought a quad nacelle design like the Prometheus and I'd be happy too... Naturally a Phaser Lance would be required included!

My Galaxy-X was the first C-Store ship I bought when I started STO, took a while to get use to now I love it, got two toons who use it exculsively ,
Toon 1,
All phaser, quad, dhc x 2 and single cannon 4 x turrets all XI Borg.
Toon 2
Quad, tri, quantum dhc, 4 x turrets

Got the venture skin now if only there was a fleet version, don't want a saucer sep but less inertia better turn rate, mabe a redesigned saucer and neck with less volume more military looking. Don't use the cloak as I think it shouldn't be used. Doesn't seem right for the Feds.

It needs some love as there seem to be a power creep in the latest released ships and it feels like its getting left behind.

I used to fly this build almost exclusively, but then i bought my bortasqu' and once i iron out the build i might post it as i can out damage my dreadnought based on this build by a tonne, and the autocannon is only slightly worse than the lance yet the universal officer stations make the bortasqu' tactical cruiser deadly (plus its 5 tac consoles ). Many of my enemies sit in awe as the apparently clumsy and worthless school bus of a ship appears behind them and obliterates them. so Hakaishin if you're online in-game i'd be happy to test my ship versus yours might be a fairly even match

I'm curious about this build, does anyone use this build specifically for PVE (Elite STFS mostly?) I tried it, and I felt I was getting much less DPS from cannons then I was with my beams. I certainly did lose some of the tankiness, as with cannons you kinda have to stop and do the reverse firing strategy alot, while beams you could keep on cruising around.

Is this mostly a pvp build? I can certainly see the merit in it for that, but it just doesn't seem to work for PVE.. maybe I'm missing something huge?

Yes It was geared toward pvp exculsively. Beams are far easier to keep on target ehile moving that cannons, so that is what you are noticing. Best strategy for PVE is to do strafing runs.
