maybe the Charal's configuration could work, but that's "only" have 4 tac consoles.

not saying that with the 3 piece console set, if you want to use all of them, you'll have to make big sacrafices (lose either EPS, armor(s)/plagint(s)/alloy(s), damage console(s), field generator(s) or borg/romulan repu console)

until today, i was about to BUY this ship. but now i don't see any reason why i should buy it, or why is it even better than my good ol' fleet defiant.
Well, to be fair, they've directly said this is a 'glass cannon' ship: built for damage, not a balanced approach.
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.

I'd consider getting the tac variant if I had fun things in game to do with it which also rewarded my play time fairly.

Also... where's my Vesta bridge? After all the fuss you made over "OMG VESTA!11!! All the legal hoops we had to jump through to get the ship in game!!1", and the dissertation-length nonsense you wrote to sell it, and no bridge?

small things can ruin everything... with comm tac, lt comm tac, ensign tac, lt engi, lt sci, it would be perfect (for me). as it is now, it's just a fun but very risky glass cannon what's definitely not worth 5k zen (for me).

First, people having characters of both factions is not the point, some people (like me for instance) prefer playing KDF, i havnt done a mission fed side in months (in fact its probably well over a year)...i dont think its asking too much to have a bit of balance when it comes to ship releases, the KDf have not had a ship release in the store since the Bortas pack almost a year ago and is so far behind now its beyond a joke.

As to your point that they took a rear weapon away to gain the fore slot, there is no way you can compare a fore slot on an escort to a rear slot, this 5th fore slot is a hell of a lot better than the removed rear slot.

Any more details on the Wing Cannons?

And what about a KDF equivalent? (They are still owed a 3-pack after the Vesta by the way).
