# 1 Mirror Galaxy - Lock Box ship?

Mirror Galaxy with the same Boff and Console layout as the Mirror Negh'Var.


What say you?

I'm still a bit miffed about the mirror heavy cruiser. I'd rather have a fleet version of that then the one I have now :/

I can see TWO ships for this.

1- The Mirror Universe Galaxy. The MU version of the 9 console Galaxy.
2- Yesterday's Enterprise Galaxy. A 10 console version that's extra rare.

Both with more tactical focus since the MU is you know, the MU. And Yesterday's Enterprise Galaxy was a warship.

Boom. Solution to all the folks who want a Galaxy with bite.

Wait a minute...

Mirror Galaxy? I'm in. Mirror Galaxy X would tickle my fancy a bit more, but hey, any buff for the Galaxy Line. For the regular Galaxy i'd say give her a Lt.Cmdr Science slot. If it doesn't already have one, in that case upgrade to Cmdr and cut down on Engineering.

You do realize that an entire selection of Mirror Universe ships already exist in this game right?

And to clarify, this is very consistent with my own ideas on how to "fix" the Galaxy since I first posted on the topic oh so many years ago.

I'm not in favor of upgrading a ship that people have already paid for.

I am very much in favor of creating a new ship that people have to purchase or acquire in some new way, be it a lockbox or whatever.

The MU idea fits for me.

I'm not sure I understand your amusement.

I'm ok with them adding in a new lockbox variant of the galaxy line (two actually). Which at most carry an extra tactical console and a different BOFF layout with another tactical BOFF option.

You on the otherhand want the ship to ONE SHOT Neg'Vahrs.

There's a difference.

What say you?
The Boff and console layout of the MU Negh'Var is on the MU Cheyenne fed side, so it's unlikely that if there eve will be a MU Explorer it will feature that layout.

Woooooaw woaw woaw woaw.

Woaw.

Don't you put words in my mouth, mister. I rarely post, if you're a mutant you can count my posts on two hands, go and have a look. I never ONCE said i want a canon-one shot Phaser Lance (besides, by gimping yourself in every other way and put everything in the Lance you can do that one already... if it doesn't miss. Which it probably will. And besides-besides i think it took two hits). I mean yeah, it'd be nice and all, but that'd be seriously overpowered. Like two Scimitars on top of each other-overpowered. (Because the canon-weapon likely has no 3 minute cooldown, but that's speculation since it was only fired once... well, twice, but you get what i mean.)

What i WANT is this: a Fleet version with the usual stat upgrades, a tenth console (OR a slight accuracy buff to the Lance OR baking in the cloak) and that upgrades the Lt. Tactical Boff seat to a Lt. Cmdr Tactical.

I'd be CONTENT with only downgrading the Lt. Cmdr Engineering Seat and upgrading the Lt. Tactical to Lt. Cmdr. I'm fairly forgiving when it comes to the X's short comings, but having to choose between Attack Pattern Beta and a more useful version of whatever i use for a gimpy Ensign-level Boff ability just plain doesn't cut it for a Warship.

And that's why i'm defending the Galaxy X as a battleship. Because people say it isn't while it clearly IS. That one's not a Gameplay-thing. It's a Story-thing. I don't need the thing to be the most OP **** ever - if i did i'd reroll spikey-ears and pilot a Scimitar. But it's in a sorry state that is in no way justified by the Lore. And some peeps here DO try to.
