It's more like trying to sell you the car in the back of the showroom....you know, the new car that hardly anyone buys. For instance....a Yugo....

Lagging, D/Cing, or rubberbanding? Here's some help.

Current ships: A lot. RTR 15 National Championships....and counting

They told in the past they do this. So newer players can see what is offered in the C-Store.

However, right after I first joined up. I was already looking at the C-Store to see what was offered. That is when I bought the Constitution Class for my 1st ship. To go old school until I got the Constitution Refit. So it's not like I was on the forums waiting for them to post "featured ships".

Guess they wanted to post something until they get news really worth posting.

http://www.stowiki.org/Federation_Dreadnought_Cruiser vs. http://www.stowiki.org/Odyssey_Tactical_Cruiser

With the odyssey tactical you have a better hull, 1.15 shield modifier compared to 1 for the X, 2.5 times more crew, a lt commander station and ensign station that are universal for better customization, the odyssey also has an additional science console slot as well for a total of 10 console slots.

Both ships have the same turn and impulse speed, however the odyssey does have a slightly worse inertial rating.

Of course the biggest advantage the X has is the phaser lance, Which is a built in ability not a console. This is very nice as you don't have to waste a console slot. It hits hard, but not that hard, plus the cooldown makes it kind of a bummer. The cloaking device is nice and added with the phaser lance allows for a nice alpha strike against unsuspecting targets. Of course the cloak is a console slot so it can be compared to the tactical odysseys Aquarius escort. The other selling point of the x being the only fed cruiser to use cannons. The gain is basically a wash as the speed and maneuverability of this ship makes cannon use highly unrecommended. You'll most likely have higher dps by using beams to always fire at your target compared to the dps loss from maneuvering your ship to line up to your target.

The galaxy X is a nice ship, I bought one back in the day, and sometimes I take her out for a spin now and again as it's fun to fly the legendary galaxy ship from all good things. But, after the release of the odyssey and the vesta the ship is starting to fall behind. If your funds are limited and you want a good fed cruiser I'd go with the incredibly capable odyssey.
Thanks, I have been really considering the Odyssey as well. As funds is little tight for me due to Christmas.

Some been fussing about the turning on it. Is it slower than the Negh'Var? I use that ship for my KDF. Cause on that one, I use forward cannons. And get by with it, plus dish out some serious damage. I just learned how to fly really well.

I agree with This Guy. Would make since.

Also which is better The Dreadnaught Exploration Cruiser’s Phaser Spinal Lance or the Vesta Quantum Field Focus Phaser? That Is a Question to be Asked.

From everything I've read on the forums, the Vesta's weapon by a landslide. The spinal lance hits for the damage output of a BO2 or possibly BO3 shot on average (with a horrible cool down of 5 minutes no less as opposed to the 1 minute cooldown on BO shots). The Vesta phaser on average hits for 3 times the damage of the spinal lance from what I've read with only a 3 minute cool down.

Maybe the idea behind the "featured ship" is to collect feedback on that ship? ^^

And I am sure there will be a fleet version.

The Negh'Var has a base turn rate of 10. The Galaxy and all of its variants has a base turn rate of 6. I highly recommend that you use Aux to Inertial Dampers whenever you have to turn quickly in any Galaxy cruiser.
How many Starfleet Engineers does it take to exchange an Anti-positronic Photon Emitter?

Basically correct, but the Vesta cannon is a console, and the Spinal Lance only has a 3-minute cool down.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
