To hide the ugly ship? I agree.
The Sar Theln Warship looks better, but it should be built like a flight-deck cruiser.

I really can not see myself flying one of these, and as its bound and cant sell it, I wont bother.

These alien ships should be account bound, and a special Playable Character unlock to match to make them more valuable.

That Breen ship doesn't need any additional sales pitch, it has the perfect PvE BO layout for an escort and a near perfect console layout. I was half hoping the ship was going to suck so I didn't have to log on and so some silly ass race for the next month... Guess not.

Sure, it could be a better ship, but I don't expect them to have to "sell" me on it. They are GIVING it to me.

Now personally I think it's an ugly piece of space junk, and will never fly it, except maybe once to test it out and say "OOOO" and "AAAA". But past that, I don't see myself ever flying it.

But it is a good ship. With decent stats, and Boff layout.

So, I guess in conclusion, I ask if someone walks up to you and says "Here, this is a free thing", is your immediate response "Why would I want your free thing? Maybe you'd better sell me on why I should want this thing you are GIVING to me for FREE. You know, really sell it, make me understand why I want it."

... Because it's Free !
Go buy yourself a copy of Miser's Delight in the lobby store. Review it, and then we'll talk tomorrow morning.

These things are subjective. I couldn't disagree more with that assessment of it. But I will be running the race just for the fun of that. Weird world, ain't it?
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.

I don't really want that particular ship.

But I'm going to see if I can actually do the race 25 times in twenty-five days.

I may bring out a TAC toon I haven't used in ages to get it.

My SCI toon isn't interested.

Not really, game mechanics are not subjective, and from the perspective of a optimal DPS/Survivability/Control (Grav well) layout, this ship is an extremely good battlecruiser/escort.

The only other layout that might be superior is a Lt Cmdr Engineer slot with (2x) Aux to Battery and Technician doffs. I'm sure we'll see that layout in the near future.

Any layout with cannons and a Cmdr & LT tac BO layout is probably going to be a good ship (ie Temporal Destroyer). It's just the right amount of slots to maximize cannons without waste, and pure cannon builds simply outperform anything else.

Your desire of how you may like your ships to fly is subjective, but when it comes down to number crunching, not so much.

Bind on pickup kills it for me. Maybe if I had an alt that could use it...

I like it. Unique Boff layout. Was expecting a more cruiser setup than an escort.
Boffs: 2 4 2 3 1

And 10 consoles also nice.
