wow from 12 to 13... Can we have an explanation why this is called an ESCORT? Turn rate of a fast cruiser, boff layout of a cruiser, consoles like a fleet excelsior... At least make that lt.cmdr a uni slot....
It is an Escort Carrier... Look them up on wikipedia.
I like mirror VoQ and the nadeon console. Though the influx of Dominion ships without a Cardie/ Dominion faction makes me wonder if that faction will ever exist.
After KDF completion and a working RSE faction of course.
Worry not about that, because by the time al of this happens, these ships will be obsolete and have becomed a part of the STO history and this lockbox will be long forgotten.
Because true Starfleet Captains command Exploration Cruisers!
Thank you Cryptic for finally giving me MY SHIP!!!
That's not true. Cruisers all have Cdr Eng, Science Ships all have Cdr Sci, Escorts have Cdr Tac.
This ship should be compared to the Heavy Destroyer, and is essentially a Chimera giving up mobility for a hanger.

I haven't seen an Mk12 Jem'Hadar ground set yet, but I did see one component of the space set.
Unique - Max of one per character.
I'm not sure that's a good idea.
What if you wanted to equip multiple sets across several ships?
If you swap ships a lot, it would be inconvenient to migrate the entire set to whatever ship you wanted to use.
And similarly, what if you wanted to kit out an entire away team or crew with the ground set?
Would this also be nixed by the Unique restriction?
The way I see it, Mk12 is endgame gear.
I don't know much about MACO, Omega or KHG sets, but I'm assuming if you invest the time in collecting the Omega Marks and Borg Neural Processors, you could theorectically assemble several sets of these.
So, it would be fair if you can do this with the Jem'Hadar sets as well, in case a player is motivated to do this for whatever reason.
Wow, i'm surprised by the BO layout of the Dominion Dreadnought and the Cruiser. I would have expected them to have a much more "tanky" setup.
Congratulatins devs, you have finally found out that no one wants to fly a super tank, althrough the dreadnought would have been more than qualified for that. Now the galaxy class is officially the most boring and lame ship in the game.
