The Federation has Saucer separation
Last i heard for the galaxy refit, the ability has a 10 minute cool down, and is only available to the refit version of the galaxy.
I would think it would be prudent to have this ability given to all galaxy class ships, no matter there level, and also have the timer reduced to 5 minutes.
I would also request that the saucer separation mode be added to the Prometheus class starship. Also known as multi vector assault mode. Ask that it too be a 5 minute cool down not 10 minutes.
I fully understand that this could be op in the case of the galaxy x sense it can have dual cannons, and cloak as is. If that would be the case then i would not add this ability to the galaxy x.
Just the thoughts of one player.
actually the cooldown's already been reduced, I think it's only 3-4 minutes, it's short enough to basically deploy every time I enter combat. And just like Fleet Support and Security Escort the timer only counts when you aren't in combat, the saucer will stick around until either it's destroyed, or there aren't any more baddies to fight, as long as you don't use full impulse.
Saucer Sep cooldown is 5 minutes. And for those who don't have the refit galaxy, all it does is turn the stardrive into an escort type ship with cruiser boff slots and 4 forward and aft weapon slots. All the saucer has at seperaton is a forward and aft phaser array with emergency power to shields and engineering team.
It's not all that bad though.
Perhaps the above mechanics would be similar in MVAM... don't know though.
I was unaware they changed the timer on that ability, been flying a escort lately, and did they ever add it to the regular galaxy class?
"They're not even remotely the same thing. Multi Vector would require more coding work. Maybe some day they'll do it. But it's a bit more involved than just slotting the power onto a Prometheus."
I don't know you look at the Prometheus class, and they had to have that ability in mind, i can pretty much pick out the separation points. How are they not the same? The only difference is you get three parts instead of two, and the crew for each part would be extremely small.
To the other poster do i wish to die, well no hehe, but it would be something fun to have.
