tac KDF: B'rel retro set up as sci heavy. i dead you with cloaked science!!!!!
Sci Rom: D'D retro
Eng Fed: Tac Odyssey with chevron and aquarius
i do like the oddy i feel it is a worthy and true successor to the galaxy. never found the sov as a replacement or successor to the galaxy wile it was a good ship it just not comparable. the galaxy was a multi role exploration ship/front line fleet command ship. the sov is a nimble heavy cruiser mainly built for combat with the same fire power as a galaxy but with out the role flexibility
Hard question for someone like me, played since launch, have collected 2 separate lock box set, Oddys, vestas, scimis, avenger, mohg, etc etc etc, play the Oddy most (tactical version on an Eng with bfaw perfected build) BUT I lean towards my wells, aeon pait job, black on lack.. so much fun, so versatile, and yes abusive when I pvp for sure, Ive been rotating out a lot of wierd gear for fun, less cheese for serious runs... So yea once completed the Wells sci vessel is awesome. One of my sure fire favorites after all this time.
Fed, I always come back to my Odyssey. It just fits me, my playstyle and personality. Ambassador is a close second, and on paper its probably a better choice, but its missing some intangible.
Romulan, the get that same sensation when I'm in my D'deridex. Other ships might be mechanically superior, but the DD is always my first pick when feeling green.
Klingon, I've got a number of ships I enjoy and I'd probably lean towards the Tor'kaht (though bops and heavy carriers are so much fun to fly), but I've never found anything that I can really call mine. Tried a dozen different endgame ships, but never found one where I know 'this is where I belong.' Can't put my finger on it.
Cross faction, strangely I end up with the Plesh Brek. I'm not normally one for cross faction stuff (Feds should fly Starfleet ships, Klingons should fly KDF, etc), but when I popped this thing open to make a NWS-specific build, it just fit like a glove. Where I've stuggled with Ning'taos and Armitages and Corvettes, this odd little guy just zips around doing everything I ask and never breaking a sweat. It just works.
If I had to choose one ship from the entire game that I have most fun with that would probably be the Excelsior. I have many ships I love and enjoy, but the Excel just fits like a glove to me.
For the way I play and what my goals in game are, the Excelsior is pure awesomness and ton of fun to fly.
Well I love escorts. Fast, powerful, versatile. And one of the iconic escorts everybody should love (if you don't I'll beam aboard your ship and fly it into the sun) is the Akira class. It has 1 of the most unique designs out of a lot of starships. Again, versatile and very deadly. And since I'm a torpedo guy, she's even more beautiful to me. Ah, LOVE that ship!
