Like the title says. When we rank up to VC are the new ships like T6, or T5.5 or something, or are they level with the current array of ships?

I just ask because I'm not really looking forward to upgrading to a galaxy. Especially if all that makes it special is saucer seperation, just not what I was expecting. I know that since I'm a tac officer, I could go with the escort, but if I wanted cloaking I'd juat make my main a klingon.

Anyone know for sure?

From my understanding, they will be on par with T5. Meaning they will have unique abilities, but certain T4 drawbacks. So you probably won't need to upgrade to the new galaxy, but you might find it fun to take it out for a spin every now and then without feeling gimped

True. Hopefully they give special abilities to the current T5's.

The stats I saw for thre retrofit T5 Defiant (as much as I can recall, anyway):

2 commander tac BO slots

4 fore weps
3 aft weps

3 eng console
1 sci slot (might have been 2, I don't remember 100%)
4 tac console

and has a cloak ability.

Atleast, thats as much as I remember.

In the shipyard on Tribble, if you go to the T5 information terminal, all the stats for the new ships are there.

We won't really know until we get to FLY them.

Remember, some stats on those databases are already incorrect (the turn rates for DSSVs and RSVs are wrong way around, for instance, and have been since launch day). So really, this is all speculation until we get to fly one.

We got all of them checked into our test build today and hooked up the stores and rewards on our internal testing shard.

QA has the build in their hands and they have agreed to put in some OT tomorrow to see if we can get the build approved and out to you before the end of the weekend.

I really want to see your face when you see the saucer separate

(although to set some early expectations... the saucer "returning" isn't perfect ... we had to compromise a little because it is really freakin hard to get a docking sequence to work when you are flying your ship around)

maybe the ship needs to be forced to stop to reconnect. ( so you would not want to do it in combat. )
