i'm not down with the whole cruiser pilots vs escort pilots thing though. i love cruisers. i always play the single player story missions in cruisers.

i just feel better in an escort..they make me feel all warm inside, you know? all fuzzy like. happy to be alive..

More like happy to relentlessly slaughter those poor helpless NPCs and players.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

The rest are MK XII phaser arrays with ACCx3 modifiers

The lance is powerful enough, may be nice to have an ACC modifier exp in PvP. Then again, if you are PvPing in a Gal-X, you should be bringing along a subspace jump console to pop up in the enemy's rear facing.

Cruisers are viable ships. Just dont expect it to do everything, stay within yourself, and then its a matter of best pilot wins. Who can ask for more than that?

Yeah, the Subspace Jump has been the best thing in the world for the Galaxy-X.

CBS turned it into a making making scheme during the original movies.

Had the Galaxy-X some few months after it was initially released. I've used it a few times but always return to another ship. Personally I viewed it as an inferior cruiser to the Excelsior and the Regent, since unlike those ships it couldn't sustain cannon rapid fire.

Recently tried an extreme build (won't mention what it is incase Cryptic nerfs it, but it's totally legit) and found the ship performed excellently. DHC and turret build meant it performed close to the level of an escort (closest a Fed cruiser could get anyway) but with the added bonus of being super tanky.

One thing I did notice is that the spinal lance is a bit rubbish unless enhanced by tactical captain buffs. My DHCs crit so often the unbuffed spinal lance looks puny in comparison. 2x 10,000 just about matches a volley of DHCs. So I wouldn't personally be bothered about it unless you want a nice finishing move or have it buffed.

Still wouldn't fly it into PvP though, it's turnrate is too much of a liability and requires far too much effort.

Will be nice to see how the saucer sep improves the ship.
