Oh, hmm, I'm not sure. That would be really cool but some stuff wouldn't fit quite right.

Well, a galaxy should be able to fit all the T4 parts, just like the intrepid and defiant. I would assume it would work that way, but idk.

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 NPC ship needs to dock with the player controlled saucer instead of the saucer being docked with the ship?

Ya, thats my problem. I hated the sluggishness of the Galaxy, and a galaxy w/ saucer seperation is still a sluggish galaxy with an added ability.

If I understand this, the saucer is basically an escort. So the T5 Galaxy basically has Cruiser and Escort modes.

So when the ship is seperated it has increased manueverability? I spose its not out for testing yet, so no one probably has that answer yet huh? That would be interesting and may make it a perfect ship for a tac or eng huh? What consoles can it use?

It looks to me like every T5 refit has a variant mode and is basically a "hybrid" with what we call a "hybrid tax" in MMOspeak.

In other words:

Intrepid T5 is a science ship with a "cruiser form"
Defiant has "stealth form"
Galaxy has "escort form"

But these are T4 ships in many respects as a tradeoff for the versatility.

You want to specialize, the existing ships we have will be superior.

You want freedom to alternate between two roles on the fly (think WoW druids or paladins), you lose the benefits of specialization but you DO get two roles you can alternate between in one ship.

Lets be honest here, QA agreed to OT because the new whiip cracking EP who now makes 6 figures a year, is beating the team into submission and reminding them that in this area of California OT is the only way that they will be able to afford to put gas in their Chevy Loves and Pintos, while the hotshot new EP drives around in his new Mercedes....come on you can tell us....

jk, seriously though, S2 is looking great, looking forward to more S2 content on Tribble soon.

4 tac console

and has a cloak ability.

Atleast, thats as much as I remember.
So it is a T5 Raptor that has greater shields, hull, bridge officers, tac consoles, aft weapons..

Yer that sounds balanced
