Warriors of the Empire, let me ask a curious question: Would the Raptor be better suited as the T2 Cruiser than the Klingon Escort?


As many of us know, the Raptor isn't looked upon well in the Empire. Imperial Captains rather use the Bird of Prey for their versatility or the venerable Battlecruisers for their durability. Furthermore, in Star Trek: Enterprise, the Raptor was regarded as a "Battlecruiser" and being 150 meters long, she fits nicely under the K'T'inga in size.

It is in my honest opinion, the Bird of Prey should've been the the Escort Class, not the Raptor, because the Bird of Prey was made not only for Scouting, but Raiding. During Fleet Battles, she always fought alongside the Battlecruisers in making a path of destruction, worthy of this small, but sturdy vessel.




So what do you say? Raptor for the T2 Cruiser and have the BoP as the Escort? Or keep things as is?

This is what the T2 cruiser actually looks like. http://i1019.photobucket.com/albums/...n/KTanco02.jpg

No reason not too use the raptor now till they fix the bug with cloaked ships showing up on the mini map

Since this makes the BOP's Battle Cloak all but useless right now

Well I think they sorta messed up with the Raptor myself. Its supposed to be a small scout vessel. In this game, its a hulking beast the size of a battlecruiser. Lolwut. The Raptor has a crew of around 12, yet in game, its almost the size of the 480 man D7 / K't'inga class. I just gave up on trying to make sense of it.

TLDR the raptor is WAY too big and powerful in this game.

Yes, I seen that picture before. And honestly, I hate it. They just merged a K'T'inga with a BoP.

But what I was saying is that even though it's too late, Cryptic should've had the Raptor as the T2 Cruiser and not turn it into the Klingon Escort. Since the game is new, I don't think anyone is going to miss it.

Sure that a Raptor? Honestly, it doesn't look Klingon to me.
