I just made VA with my newest toon, a science character and I have the most fun I had in this game for a long time.

I picked an Intrepid class science ship and it's crazy fun.

Sure, I don't kill fast, but this will improve a bit with better gear.

Last night I fooled a bit around in Ker'rat and could zip around the map fast and had enough survivability to escape if needed from players and Borg.

Absolute highlight: I was pushing away some cubes that got a bit to close for my taste with repulsors and incidentally uncloaked a KDF allied Scimitar that was sneaking up on me.
Apparently, if he intended to attack, his alpha was not ready at that moment, cause I lived through the encounter. A quick subnuc got me the time to get away behind a structure and get distance.
Some other players used the opportunity to attack in the meantime and he battlecloaked.

I returned to the general area and used my repulsors again which came off cooldown and, what do you know, I could break his cloak again, only this time I and the other players aroudn were ready for him right away. he goit chased off again and cloaked.
Thanks to his drone pet I could open a gravity well on him even after he vanished and got him trapped.
he was toast another subnuc and a few seconds later.

So, long story short it really is not necessary to have the most recent lockbox or 9-pack ships to have fun in this game.


I am considering the vesta for next month, but I just might stay in the Intrepid and just go for a fleet upgrade next opportunity instead.



What are your best moments with one of the iconic big three?

Never really flown the Defiant much, Nor the Intrepid but The Galaxy...

Oh man, i love my galaxy.


I was in Kerrat, Farming away - When i hear the sound of a Bop decloaking. Oh no, make that 2! Their initial strikes fail, as i'm able to keep my shields up, (Unfortunately, i couldn't really do much but tickle them with my phasers) then a Jem Escort joins the fight, THEN a mogai shows up, I lasted about 3 minutes but eventually went down. Pretty awesome for a ship that's considered the worst in the game

Well, if there is something the galaxy can do in this game is taking a pounding.

I guess that's why everyone always refereed to the Enterprise D as a she.

I still think that the Ensign seat on both the Intrepid and the Galaxy should be changed to a universal.

Yeah that'll happen just as soon as Cryptic gets around to making a Galaxy interior like the constitution/defiant complete with decks and Ten forward and everything.

I don't do much in PvP. Never really liked it. But taking a galaxy through a pve match is a blast. There's nothing like being able to tank through a crystalline entity shockwave. I've flown many ships in my time here, but none matches my experience with the galaxy. Can't wait to get the fleet version.

I have had many good times in my fleet defiant. I haven't pvp'd with it and I don't have one favorite moment but I like taking down big bad guys with the little thing.

1 vs 1 pvp, random guy in a D'D, me in my defiant. We both cloak off the bat. I decide to decloak to draw him out, it does, we have a fight, he engages cloak to start healing, having not got my shields down. I stalk around the planetoid for a bit, and hit my cloak at the exact same instant he decloaks not 5km in front of me, he sweeps past.

It was a rather impressive piece of timing.
