Sounds like a escort trying to be a certain cruiser with a phaser lance. Is there anyone that has flown both that can provide a write up comparing the 2? Would be awsome
are you sure you posted this in the correct subforum?
and i own both the GalX and all the currently avvailable escorts, and there is a key difference between them: mobility.
the GalX has the hull of a cruiser, the weapons loadout capability of an escort, and it turns like a Klingon carrier.
Honestly i prefer the 39,001 hull of a highly maneuverable dps professional like an escort- over the 50,070 hull dreadnought cruiser because the dreadnought misses out on the 8 weapons slots of a normal cruiser.
the phaser spinal lance is also nowhere near as good as it used to be either. so in addition to a narrow targeting arc, the spinal lance does the damage equivalent of beam: overload 1 and it disables phasers similar to beam overload iirc.
If you want to fly a Federation ship that has "Im a big moving target- put me out of my misery" stamped all across its hull- then i would go and jump right in if i were you.
