-The D'deridex has a base turn rate of 5.5
That is not funny.

Though in fairness about 4 people in my fleet told me "don't buy an Odyssey they turn like a beached whale" and I have plenty of fun in that thing all the same, no matter what anyone says.

I haven't gone to far this evening, but the plasma shockwave is pretty nifty.

That is eniterly subjective. I can enjoy ships with lower turn rates.

For the likely huge hull HP that ship will have it will be fitting to have a low turn rate. Don't like it, you can put on consoles, spec into thrusters or maybe get warp/impulse engines that enhance turn rate. Still don't like the turn rate, then fly another ship that's meant to turn faster.

i could not be more disappointed in the D'deridex. omfg. literally a galaxy R clone, the worst cruiser, and worst ship in the game. with the insane EPt skill change, it makes it even worse to have 3 ENS eng then EVER.

i'll be making a large post at some point soon going over each and every ship in detail.

While true, it doesn't feel quite as right to be flying a D-bird with broadsiding... Will wait till I get a chance to fly though.

There doesn't seem to be a really science oriented ship, the closest being the C-Store Mogai with a Lt. Commander Sci slot and a Lt. Universal slot. Didn't see one with Commander Science. It's a shame too because the singularity abilities seem so tailor made for a Science-oriented vessel/captain, especially since Science captains get a unique trait to gain singularity charge more rapidly.

In addition, the 60 second cooldown on singularity abilities makes the T'Varo Light Warbird's Singularity Stabilizer console seems almost essential.

While we always appreciate feedback, I'd really recommend actually playing the D'deridex and getting a feel for it before worrying too much about the turn rate. The Singularity powers go a long way toward changing the feel of the ship. If you play the ship and don't enjoy it, feel free to post about why you feel that way.

Moreover, we have several Warbirds available that are faster if you're interested in a style of play more similar to an Escort. The D'deridex is a huge ship, canonically both larger and slower than the Galaxy. We're doing our best to make it appropriate to the IP, as well as fun to play.

There is thread after thread about how horrible the Galaxy is to actually play, so if it's like it, that's a huge misstep.

I wouldn't say it's slower. Those D'Deridexes (and Galaxy for that matter) always pulled a pretty sharp turn whenever they disengaged.

Not to mention the primary weapons of the D'Deridex were supposed to be in the "beak", not side mounted.
