I've requested such a build several times before, though nothing has obviously come of it. I would love to fly the above ship, and would input further funds to the game for it's release. I would ask that other people who'd like this idea come forth and make their desires known. If it's just me that craves this build, then I might as well give up any hope of seeing it and as such, this will be the last time I mention it.

The only difference between the current Fleet Star Cruiser is proposal is that the Boff Slots have been altered to mirror that of her sister ship; the fleet assault cruiser. The Assault Cruiser and Star Cruiser initially came about as sister ships, mirroring stats (so that players could choose between a tactical orientated cruiser, and a science orientated cruiser). The Assault Cruiser got beefed, but the Star Cruiser was left behind, and (from my point of view at least) there is no incentive for anyone to purchase the Fleet Star Cruiser when it offers nothing of vast difference except a ship skin, not for the asking price of what would be 2000zen.

Thus, as stated earlier, if you would engage this idea then please post and show your support. And Devs, please get this ship to us. All it requires is a simple Boff setup change, it would make the ship play with enough difference to warrant (what I'd believe to be) a good number of purchases.

It's interesting. I don't think I'd buy it in the present meta, but it's interesting.

If I could use it on my Romulan, maybe.
Although I'd settle for a D'kyr :p

No, but only because I already own the Odyssey Science Cruiser, which can be built with a very similar Boff layout (minus the Lt. Universal), has a higher hull rating than your Fleet version and higher shields at Mk X than either variant.

In addition to the 2/4/4 console layout, the only other difference would be that you sacrifice the +5 Weapon power for +10 Auxiliary. To round it off, the Sci Oddy has Sensor Analysis, comes with Work Bees and can be fitted with the full Oddy console set.

So I wouldn't buy it, but not because it's a bad idea, but because generally speaking, I personally already own a ship that's is close enough in stats to warrant spending Zen on a not-too-dissimilar ship.

That being said, if it looked nice...
Iconian? A label created by the Dewans to give voice to their destruction.
In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.
We simply... are.

Buy it? No. Simply due to the fact that I am not spending any of my money on this game. Don't really like the way it is developing.

But it is an interesting ship indeed. I'd probably fly one if I managed to get a free one.

No!

There is no use for a Supportship without DPS capabilities, so i wont pay for it.

It will never happen since it's role is already filled by http://sto.gamepedia.com/Fleet_Support_Cruiser_Retrofit and is less desirable as posted. As stated abve, the Odyssey can be made to fill a similar role. You may like the skin of the Star Cruiser but your version is a money loss, we'll see the Jupiter and/or Typhoon in game before yours.

Problem a: Too close to the Sci oddy (that many players own the bundle of)
Problem b: Only a little amount of players like to play that support-tanky playstyle, everyone just wants MOAR DPS, MOAR DPS and ... you know what? they want MOAR DPS!

I Support the Jupiter & Typhoon classes as playable ships! (As do about 150 other Supporters)
