I need some advice for my next ship. Has anyone here used the Negh'Var at all? Can anyone tell me about the turn rate? I ask because I want to carry over my full set of dual heavy cannons. Does the Negh'Var have a decent turn rate to justify such a set?
Also, I am considering getting rid of both my torpedo bays, to be replaced with 2 dual heavy cannons. I will then change the skills of my tactical officers to boost cannons instead of torpedoes. Is this a prudent course of action? Advice?
The Negh'Var Heavy Battle Cruiser has a turn rate of 9, it is not a good idea to use cannons, even though it would look damn cool, you would have an extremely difficult time bringing your enemy target into your Dual Heavy Cannons firing arc (45*). If you're not going to PvP, then sure I don't see why you can't just go ahead and do this for the fun of it.
