Hi,

Which Cruisers have 5 tactical slots that a Federation Character can use?

Looking for something comparable to a Scimitar.

Thanks.

There is nothing comparable to a scim for feds (or klings). As rom go fleet arkif. If you want a good fed cruiser get the fleet excelsior or fleet assault cruiser.

Much as I'm tempted to troll and say the new Fleet Gal-X, in actuality the closest you'll probably find would be the Avenger/Mogh, and even those are still significantly different. The monstrosity really has no direct counterpart.

IMHO the 5 weapon avenger class is the closest thing to a scimitar.
IMHO the 5 cannon escorts are pretty slick too.

Andorian Kumari Escort has 5 tac consoles.
Avenger has 4.
Note that the avenger has the cruiser commands which the scimitar does not, which probably makes up for 1 tac console. the avenger is tougher.

The dps gap from rom BOs means even the escort won't beat a scim in almost the same gear (ignore warp core). But it will get close enough to melt things. If you put beams on the scim and cannons at point blank range on the escort, I would not be surprised if they were equal. The escort has one of the worst officer setups in game and while it might match the dps of a scim, it is stupidly fragile.

The new galaxy is not in the class of any of these ships, its just a nice ship but really more of a tank.

I fly a Scimitar and a Mogh. The Mogh isn't far behind with the right setup.
I came to explore foreign Galaxies, and now I'm hunting Rabbits

Cruisers will never have 5 tactical consoles (with a few exceptions like the ops scimitars). That number is reserved for escorts and other ships (but mostly for escorts)..

scim is not a cruiser. Roms have zero cruisers (no ship has the commands).

I am not sure how, with the mogh, scim, avenger, etc you can say 5 up front is for escorts. Only the one fed escort (family of 3?) has 5 up front.
