I am going to wait for the Typhoon/Majestic to come out. In my opinion, the 3 nacelle Galaxy looks...silly.
There. I said it. I do not like the look of the Galaxy-X. For me, having that ship is a disincentive to recruit people.
Agreed. Typhoon and Majestic look outright deadly while the Galaxy-X looks outright foolish. Besides I don't want a Galaxy class with cannons if the *many, many horrible expletives deleted* can't turn in the first place! You can have the most lethal ship ever made but if you can't get your bow on the enemy after turning using the entire system you occupy to give it a shot than there's a problem. A big problem.
I may give it a shot myself, often times I complain like this then realize the firepower and like a small child ignore the impracticalities and die thousands of times for that one epic *BOOM* "DUDE YOU SEE THAT!?" moment. That moment usually giving way to me then getting bored of it and throwing whatever I was messing with aside.
I bought the Gal-X last night, after logging in and seeing like six of them just at Sol system.
Long story short - it's a fun toy, but I don't see it replacing my Sovereign long-term. The turn rate is just too low, coupled by the fact it doesn't seem to benefit from any of the Cruiser skills, judging by the flat 39k hull value. It takes too long to kill ships since with its bad turn rate, you end up having to kill the bad guys with just the aft weapons - Two phaser arrays and a torp launcher, in my case.
