It is an Escort Carrier... Look them up on wikipedia.

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!!!

So, fly your Vesta then. If a ship gets a buff, it usually has to lose something in return.

Such a pity there is only one MU ship that my science character will favor the other ones favour engineering. May give this lockbox a miss

Since there bin on pickup is it possibke to get these also with Dilithium as Lobi crystals being the only source of purchase seems a bit extreme

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.

Since you have to have the Jem Bug on your character to unlock the new Bug carrier pet, I was thinking....

Maybe we could also have a Jem escort carrier pet for those select few people that have both the new dreadnaught carrier and the Jem escort carrier.

Each dreadnaught hanger could support 2 wings of the escort carriers pets, which after launched would each support 2 wings of their own Jem fighter pets.

This way you could launch up to 4 wings of escort carriers that would launch up to 8 wings of Jem fighters so in theory you could have up to 12 carrier pets!

C'mon think about it

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.

One solution there would be to have a threat-> aux dump conversion.
