It probably has the best tank in the game right now thanks to the team changes.

But WAIT! That's not a viable strategy in the game thanks to cryptic.
I'm ignorant, can you explain this please?

Tanks are completely useless in STO's endgame, PVE or PVP. There is literally no need for them, which makes ships MEANT for tanking, relatively useless. The Nebula's main thing is being a tank, support, and Healer, but the first one does not matter, healers are relegated to PVP (as useless in PVE, and support only plays a marginal (if useful) role in PVE.

I would say the T3 & 5 Nebula's consoles need a rework. Considering that I don't really PvP and am not sure how many Nebulas PvP, I don't know how effective it is when used.

Most absurd thing to say is to detach the mission pod and allow escorts to mount with you. Give them boosted fire power and act as a turret. A very very powerful turret. Very untrek though.

But,
The role of a tank would be much more important because the escort and the Nebula become one entity and are now drawing aggro because of your now 13 weapons going off at once.

Other issues aside I wouldn't mind seeing alternate model parts for the Nebula. Namely the physical model saucer and secondary hull.

I can see it now. Two years from now, I'll come back to these threads and see a 'What is your beef' with nearly all fed ships out there. Prommie, Sovie, Nova, etc. It's going to be amusing.

(Well I guess the Garumba had a mode switch, but I'm trying to remember if it was before or after the Nebula).
I'm prety sue the gurambe came out long after the nebula, wouldn't be surprised if it was more then a year later.
Still, mechanically, the galaxy r was the first ship with a mode switch (beeing the saucer separation).

I thing they should have reworked the nebula along with the galaxys, after all, it's 90% the same ship.
And those needed a closer look to (especially with the tech from the Dyson ships in mind)

It's a pity. After all those are iconic ships, I can't stand them (that means all canon ships) to beeing shafted in favor of cryptics awful self creations and left as "old ships".

They should get all of those toys like switching bos and universals and 5 weapon slots and all that kind if stuff new releases get.

Not until they finally come to their senses and give the galaxy-x the LtCmDr tac slot it deserves.

Back to the nebula.. only thing i would like to see is Subsystem targeting compatible with cannons and torpedoes.

Having a complete blast with SC/turret build or torpedo bomber build on the Nebula. Only thing that would make it even more fun is the above mentioned.

Someone mentioned to just slap on some DHC, but that would make it too similar to the vesta and dyson. Not even mentioning the inevitable hangar mention.

Just subsystem targeting with cannons and torpedoes and I'm a happy camper.

I really thing ppl should stop to bite on the bit with that lc tac slot.
I don't think the request is unreasonable, I also thing the ship needs more love, but with that kind of fixation on that and only that fix will not help your cause.
In fact, at this point, if I were cryptic I'd change it into an lc sci slot just to p*** those guys off...

er.....I actually really like the Nebula.

Yup, its a tank of a science ship which pays for its utter tankishness with turn rate.

However, turn rate is easy enough to get past, especially with fleet engineering consoles.

The toon that is currently flying one is relatively new, so there's not a ton of good equipment on it.

Blue Mk XI phasers, an incomplete Solenae space set and some of Dyson rep torp.

Even has a mine launcher on the back.

So, DPS is not where it should be.

But, the beauty is, a competent science captain just doesn't die in it.

The Nebula should, at the very least, have the Galaxy's Venture skin adapted for it... so to push forward that 2409 look more.
