I may dream bofflayout for this ship was:
Lt. Tac
Cmdr. Eng
Ens. Eng
Lt. Sci
LtCmdr. Universal.

Or the Bofflayout of the Chel Gret but with Eng and Sci switched. I hope the will put a more Offensive Bofflayout in this Ship.

Your dreams are far too mundane.

Any buff on D'D should be reflected or G-R, otherwise is a slap to the face to everyone who bought one.

I was hoping it could have a layout like a galor, but any fleet or 10 console version would get a 4th tac console.

Lt Cmdr Tac
Cmdr Eng
Lt Eng ( or universal)
Lt Sci
Ens Sci

4 eng
2 sci
3 tac (4 for fleet version)

im guessing the mogai will be a km wide escort for all the sense this game makes.

but really, when surrounded by enemies, you dont stop making larger capital fleet ships because they lack power, you stop making them because they are expensive and you are running out of resources you cant afford to have concentrated.

escort the size of a fraking soverign...
it'l probably move like a ******n fed tac escort just to make sure to get the ''trololol escorts ftw'' mantra across...

For what it's worth, the D'Deridex is my favorite Romulan ship too. The main reason I've looked forward to playing a Romulan is to fly one of these beauties at End Game. I would like to add my voice to this discussion. It's just sad that the iconic Galaxy class ships are so disappointing, and it sounds like they might be doing the same with the DD.

Cryptic, please do not make the D'Deridex a FailBoat.

I have not seen all the stats, I don't know what the singularity powers do, I've not tried it. I admit that. But in general, in this game a 5.5 Turn is terrible. It's no fun to fly.

An Eng-heavy BOff layout doesn't make sense either, given we've seen the NPC DDs use powers like VM, PSW, etc. The DD would feel better if it were a Sci-oriented cruiser.

Lastly, with the current Tribble EPtX changes. All those Ens Eng BOff powers are going to be so very, very useless.

Please be kind and offer us a better ship.

The good news is that a dev said that the stats of all level 20+ ships are mostly placeholders, as the current beta phase is about levels 1-20. There is still hope for the D'deridex and actual science ships and carriers.....

Oh good. With that in mind I'd guess it's possible they copy/pasted the Gal-R's stats onto the D'd since those two ships are contemporaries.

Ideally an Ambassador layout with the Lt. Cmdr Sci slot and more Tac consoles would be best, but really, just changing that Ensign Eng to literally anything else would be fine.

Considering the Dev who statted the ship said flat out the turn rate on the T4 D'Deridex is supposed to be 5.5 (as opposed to the 5 that's currently displaying), I don't think it's a placeholder.
