The Odyssey's turn rate isn't as big a problem for maneuvering as her ridiculous amount of inertia.

If you like being in an uncontrolled powerslide, hey, it may be the ship for you.

Thanks for the replies!

I still got my Excelsior Refit if I feel like jumping into a faster cruiser.

Still I feel the need to get a "modern" looking ship like the Sovereign/Regent or Ody.

I got a while to save up anyways. Take care.

I was stupid and bought all three Oddy's individually. They are now all mothballed, except for two that I keep for storing various sets, weapons, and consoles I don't want to clutter up my bank with.

The turn rate/inertia thing killed it for me. I never could play more than about 1 mission without going back and switching into something that could outmaneuver an iceberg.

So, no, I wouldn't buy it again.

Why did you buy all three if you did not like the first on ?

The C-Store Odyssey (singles or the 3-Pack) come with one unique new Bridge; and it's (IMO) probably the best Bridge done for the game to date. As for the OPs question, yep - even though I had the free Ody on all my characters (deleted once I picked up the Ody 3-Pack); I would by the 3-pack again, and still use the Tac Ody on my main Engineer character.

Whilst I'd say that I would probably buy the Odyssey pack again, I can say without any hesitation that I would buy the Vesta pack again.

I absolutely love the Vesta - can put my sci in it and have access to the usual Sci-tricks and aux-powered DPS that (whilst obviously no-where near escort-level) allows me to hold my own. And furthermore, it looks awesome too (in my opinion).

As I said, I was stupid.

What happened was I had some extra funds left over at the end of one month so I bought a lot of Zen and purchased a lot of stuff. Stupid, stupid, stupid...

Oh well. At least I did my part to keep the servers on-line.

I would certainly buy the Odyssey Pack again, it is the ship for my main character and in my opinion, no Regent or Excelsior comes close.

I wish I was as happy with my Vesta. I just can't make her out perform my Atrox, the ship I bought her to replace. The second rack of elite scorpions seals the deal every time. The Vesta is a sweet ship, don't get me wrong, but compared to my Atrox she may as well not leave port. To even begin to approach the damage my Atrox can I need to use the uni ltcom as a Tac, which lowers the amount of Sci I can bring to the table. On top of that my Atrox can take a beating without relying on a 3pc set to save my bacon. In all I'm more survivable, do more damage, Have more sci control, and have more free console slots. The only thing the Vesta gets in compensation is more maneuverability and more buttons to press. Perhaps if I lacked the skill to fly a large ship I would be more enamored with her.

I guess I spent $50 so I could Tour the Galaxy in style...

Edit: I also think the Vesta fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down... but oddly I really like the Aventine. Surprising what a couple little changes can do to the lines of a ship. It comes down the the nacel struts for me I think. I really, really do not like the Vesta ones, going out and wide. The Aventine feels like a Barracuda... I love to fly her I just wish I hadn't parsed the logs and seen my missing 1-2k DPS...
I once again match my character. Behold the power of PINK!
