Well, I am not picking the Enterprise, because the crew seem quite happy to fly around in a ship that they CALL the Enterprise but, on observation of the exterior, is actually named USS Odyssey NCC 1701-F.

Silly crew can't make up their minds!

So would you rather have a combat Oddy or an Exploration Oddy?
I feel the same way about the Lleisat. I don't want to command a flagship because you lose much of your freedom, I think. As the symbol of the fleet, you can't just go do whatever you want. And being called to every moderate skirmish to play the cavalry role, doesn't suit me or my crew. Besides, I fly a Falchion class and my crew has seen more action and rolled up more accolades and commendations than the flagship (we're better equipped and armed too). With a flag officer in the captain's chair, we also get a bit more leeway as a result (there isn't a single successful Navy in the first world where a Commander has more clout than an Admiral, unless the Commander's father is...the Commander in Chief).

My favorite ship crew is the Bortasqu' though. I love Koren and her Dark Action Girl persona. Like in Sphere of Influence, Shon goes down like a lamb but Koren drew blood and made it known she wasn't going down easy.

The Romulan Crew are my Favorite , they have personalities, and Yosih is my Fav from the Enterprise, becasue he likes Klingons, and the KDF crew are mean ,but Klingon, although that guy that's part of the House of J'mpok, I feel is gonna try to take over one day.

I liked the Klingon crew the best, particularly the Orion. It was nice to see the fact that not all species in the KDF buy into the Klingon 'Honor and Glory' thing. By contrast, the Republic crew seemed to be the sort of predictable politically chosen Republic sycophants I'd expect from the Republic. I liked the Enterprise crew. The counselor seemed interesting (I don't remember her last first contact day) and I thought it was a nice touch that the alien crewmembers pointed out that first contact day is a human holiday, not necessarily a Andorian etc one. All too often Trek sidelines the non-human members of the Federation.

I liked the I.K.S. Bortasqu' crew the best. I won't hide that I've always been a fan of Captain Koren, but the bridge crew offers interesting dialogue and insight on honor as well. I liked how they improved Dr. Harza-Kull's looks compared to the previous year to make him look more profound and intelligent. His dialogue was also interesting though.

While I probably like Tiaru Jarok the best of the flagship Captains, I'm at 50-50 on the R.R.W. Lleiset crew. Half of them were good and interesting characters, I liked the First Officer and the Doctor, but seing the Deferi was......odd, and the Reman with the eyepatch...seriously? lol
But my biggest dissapointment was the tactical officer - I mean, she's tactical, so she's bound to have a mohawk, a huge 'Nero' tatoo splashed all over her face and she has to show attitude towards the Republic Vice Admiral that discovered New Romulus and killed Hakeev, right? Because's she's tactical, right? Classic Crpytic.

And LMAO the crew of the Enterprise.....pardon me.....the 'Odyssey'...ahahaahha
These folks can't even figure out what their uniform code on board the ship is, let alone to steer the Federation's flagship towards success.
Let's just say that if there was a show with these guys, it would have been cancelled after the first season on air.
And lol @Shon 'the warrior' - "Don't break my ship!". Uhm...you're the one that breaks ships Shon, not me.
The Federation is a poor joke in this game.
Looking for a genuine Star Trek experience?
Join the Klingon Empire! It will be glorious!

The Romulan crew was my favorite. I liked the tac officer mostly, and the captain. I didn't liked the liberated borg too much, he was too much cliche "oh I was liberated and now I have trouble not to be Borg".

Klingons crew was my least liked. Some characters are mostly useless (the J'mpok house guy is basically useless, and I didn't find anything interesting about the Gorn). Sad, because some of them are really neat (the Orion and the engineer).

I have the Vasquez syndrome since I saw Aliens when I was a kid (I was young, but it was ok, I saw Alien before and had nightmares for a week), and I really liked her. It was my favorite character, with Ripley (obviously). I was also a big fan of Grace Jones in Conan.

So I always liked the short haired crazy warrior b*** kind of NPC.

Also, she is the only female Romulan to have the Nero tatoo, as we can't use it on our character (fem rom), and I haven't seen any other female Romulan NPC with it.

i noticed that too, it was particularly worse than the average "npc" build by cryptic.

the most glaring one was the bortas having cannon abilities despite not having cannons lol.

also one of the ships had a mk II console(the bortas i think).

no wonder the alpha/beta quadrant are falling apart.

Virtual high five! I love Ripley and Grace Jones (music career and in Conan).

I hope she pops up again. The crew members each have an interesting personality and viewpoint that I would love to see expanded on.

I enjoyed some of the characters, the Doctor from the Bortasqu in particular. That guy must have seen some ****.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
