Mirror Ships are Lock Box Rewards. It's only the Dreadnought that is Lobi.

a better turn rate is unreasonable, its 3 times the size of the galaxy, and according to this page 7 times the volume. its lucky to have the same turn rate

For a ship as massive as it is, I doubt it.

The Kar'fi moves like it does because it is the smallest out of the full fledge carriers. This behemoth is the largest, so the turn makes sense.

This is why they need to remove a lot of hull and shields to be able to add a lot of turnrate so that this ship makes sense. Otherwise it's a giant piece of crap, and people buying that will be quicly disappointed.

A Jem'Hadar warship design developed in the Gamma Quadrant after the end of the Dominion War
Please answer me the this question-
Why the Ketracel is the Dominion giving ships to captains of other states?
OK, I can see Starfleet and the KDF using captured enemy ships (especially with the precarious situation the known galaxy is in), and if a Starfleet captain saves the galaxy in a privately owned vessel, I think the Admiralty would "look the other way." But a post-Dominion War ship - from the Dominion? Last time I checked, the Dominion wasn't at war with either the Federation or the Klingon Empire in 2409. True, there is the whole 2800 fleet, but the main reason they fight is because they didn't believe the Dominion War was over. From said Episode and the (other) Cardassian Front mission, it seems that the current attitude of the Founders these days is "don't bother us, we won't bother you." And, from said missions, it seems the UFP (and the Klingon Empire, by implication) is just fine with respecting that attitude. So there is no reason why Starfleet and KDF captains would be getting new Dominion ships.


It makes me think, "Are you trying to kill immersion, Cryptic? Do you want to become the Battlefield 3 of Star Trek?"

Now, if you want to make a Dominion ship that was never seen or mentioned in DS9, you can still say it was captured in the DW. It was a huge conflict, just because we never saw a certain ship in the war on TV doesn't mean it never did. Just ask the crew of a Sovereign-class.

Guys, this thing is a Dreadnought. It doesn't deserve to have a turn rate higher than six.

Actually, no they don't. Just a slight boff change would make it useful, but not OP.

Honestly...I'm more upset about the fighters than the HEC herself, I mean pulse cannons and DEM...the Tholian Widows are better IMO.

People seem to be forgetting about the True Way...they are a mix of Dominion and Cardassian vessels and they do use the Heavy Escort...so they would still be a enemy.
