# 1 The Runabout Was POS.

The Runabout Was POS. Why did you sell that POS for 146k when it could not be as good as the light cruiser. Just another reason that people wanted more money that the gold sellers wanted to provide and everyone sellling stuff on the exchange like rabid Feringis. i asked owners about the runabout and the description says it is not worth the money and it was bugged. I think that runabout should be only ship that trial accounts fly till they pay for subscription.

I think the Danube is one of the most fun ships to fool about with. Emphasis on fool about with. Load her up with nice high-level gear, head to SB24 and dogfight a BoP or swarm of To'Duj.

Also it's nice for helping out lowbies with. That way you're not completely ruining what little challenge there is in the game for them like you would if you brought a Galaxy class over, but you're still more than powerful enough to essentially take just about anything Sirius and Regulus Sector Blocks can throw at you and just shrug it off.

I don't think it was ever meant to be a serious alternative to any ship, more of a gimmick thing that fans of DS9 could get to fool about with.

They'll, hopefuly, implement some Runabout specific quests. "You must take the runabout through the wormhole and conduct XXX. A large ship would draw too much attention from the local military."

Try taking a runabout instead of the light cruiser while you're levelling an alt. I sent 150,000 through to a Lt. 2 engi and high tailed it to ds9 for just that purpose. Its been interesting to say the least trying to get the missions done with it while still being limited in skills and equipment. Presents a nice change from the Miranda for my third character too so that's a bonus in itself.

I love my runabout. It's an awesome change of pace.

Damnit Jim, it's called a RUNabout not a blastabout! Of course it's relatively weak. But it's fun

It should be a viable alternative for the tier 1 Miranda (and purchasible at SB 1)

And can you give any logical reason why a big shuttle (runabout) "should" be a "viable alternative" for a light cruiser class STARSHIP? A starship which is, canonically speaking, capable of transporting a runabout?

... and no, your personal taste does NOT count as a "logical reason".

The next thing somebody will want is probably Captain Proton's rocket pack not only integrated into the game, but available as a "viable alternative" to a Defiant class escort (ya know, just attach a phaser rifle to the rocket pack).


The runabout isn't supposed to be as good as any of the starships - it's a fun toy, mostly, at the moment. Although some runabout missions would be nice .... perhaps a little space race track even for and with them! Something like in Voyager "Drive".

brilliant idea, pvp racing would be an excellant pass time..... i have tried numerous times to ask random runabouts i meet to race, but i have only gotten negative replies, if it was made into an event i am sure it would attract some people
