I love how y'all are jumping on the idea of nonstandard configurations to mean 5 or 6 foreward slots, and not something actually cool, like a turret or wide-angle slot that Cryptic could easily do.

Yeah, I said it: Slots that add a specific modifier to weapons placed in them. It's coming. Just wait and see.

Dan talks about breaking the 4/4.
Al talks about no broadside.
Logical step is...?

Klingons won't gets new stuffs? Yeesh.....

Oh well that's a different subject for another day..

I still suspect the ship will have the same turn rate and inertia as the KDF Raptor. It just has the appearance that is nearly identical to the Raptor. Probably increased hull and shields that the Raptor doesn't have because of it's innate Cloaking device.
You think that your beta test was bad?

Yeah, but they'll probably move the pivot point forward so it actually turns decently. You know, like that *unintentional bug* the raptor has that they were *totally* going to fix last year in short order, but I guess decided it was working as preferred.

Al reiterated that it's a Heavy Escort... so yeah, that 15 turn is likely, eh?

Nah, they wanted to recreate the Kumari from ENT... they want Particle Cannon QBB badassery...

Picture DHC damage.
Picture quad beams.
Picture BO.
Picture having to buy the 3pack to get three of them.
Picture there being a 3pc set bonus that allows your BO to work for all three Particle Cannon QBBs...

Picture one of the variants having both a LCdr Eng and Sci BOFF... so you can MAS the EWP and TB them... so you don't need any [Acc] to light up their hull with pretty particle FX...

I still find it funny - because for the most part - didn't the Kumari just serve as a ship to get blown up a lot - pretty fast at that, no?
