Its stats are shoddy, it loses a console slot for the Tactical mode, Boff slots are questionable... I use mine as a phaser beam boat as thats the only fun way to play the damn thing. Most of the time it stays in the shipyard and I rock out with the Fleet 'Defiant' or Blockade Escort as they are both just so much better
A Ship inferior in everyway is somehow superior? Logic isn't quite your strong suit, it would appear.

The Chimera far ecplises any of the Ships you mentionned, but hey, you can't even be trusted to read their stats, so I wouldn't expect good analysis from you.

IMO the Fleet version should stay Vet-Only. It would kind of be a slap in the face if free players can get the improved version of the ship without buying lifetime.

While I agree with this, I can't see them limiting their profits. They should just make the console built in, buff it to fleet standards, and give it 10 console slots total. Allow the use of the existing cloak console from the defiant/Galaxy x for those federation cloak supporters.

Anyway my 2 cents.

No. Lifetimers should get something utterly unique to acknowledge their significant investment in the game. You want a Chimaera, you buy LTS, period.

I'd like to point out again that I'm not a lifetimer. I don't benefit from this. It just makes business sense to reward customer loyalty.

Boff slots are unique and potentially very powerful. When I look at that ship I see an engineer in that LTC universal slot, turning it into a Federation battlecruiser that can out-maneuver and out-shoot the KDF's battlecruisers.

Same would apply to the KDF players and a Fleet Peqhu' or whatever it is called.
This would be the fair way to do it.

It probably should be a 5 module ship for non-vets minus the consoles and t4 or t5 shipyard so stays somewhat rare and helps keep vets happy that everyone wouldnt easily get one.

It rocks under a twin ATB build

Those whom scoff at it may have not discovered its potential.

Enlighten me. I mentioned its inferiority because it is plainly inferior, especially as an Escort. But where do I say it is superior, and thus backstep my own logic? I would have to say that reading certainly is not your strong point.

Imo, there are plenty of ships superior to the Chimera. However a Fleet version may very well be what is needed to bring out the true potential of a 1,000 Veteran ship with its unique abilities.
If they had intended for the Chimera to be a true Vet reward ship capable of being one of the best ships ingame, it would have had 10 consoles already.

Either you're a troll, a moron or, most likely, both.
I shouldn't be so na?ve as to explain in painstaking detail what is obvious to all whose intelligence exceeds room temperature, but, since I'm way too nice, here goes: The Chimera has better stats across the board than the Hermes, yet you state the Hermes is somehow "more efficient"=> that's either terrible logic or trolling.

Now, before accusing your betters of poor reading comprehension, work on yours; because that was all already stated in the post you ing misread, you ****ing moron.



Edit: lolfilter. What are the mods, 12?

ATB = Auxiliary to Battery. It drains your auxiliary power and increases your other power levels. Some players like it on escorts because they never use auxiliary power for anything.
