# 1 Retrofitting ships
02-06-2011, 07:43 AM
Man, I can't wait for this to come to pass. I just created a new Caitian Character, and I know that at some point, I'll have to give up my Saber class, and then later on, my Zephyr class, and after that, I'll be forced into flying the (ugh) Defiant or variant thereof class.

P.S. - I know some people love the Defiant and maybe even its variants, but aesthetically, if I wanted a ship directly suited for combat, I'd pull with the Saber

I suppose I'm just ranting about the future to come, but seriously, it would be nice to be able to craft my ship along as I lvl so that it feels more immersive instead of Starfleet wasting ships every chance they get.

Agreed, I'd like to be able to use my custom heavy escort at T5 again =/

Last week I tried my old T2 cruiser in a vice admiral mission. Suprisingly I had no problems keeping it together. It only took much longer to defeat the enemies. Makes one wonder what it would take to upgrade them. Appropriate weapon, console and BO slots could almost be enough to make them viable again. I'm just a bit afraid about the BO constellations and how they will be handled if one can craft his own refit.....

Actually, that's my biggest beef with the whole affair. It isn't even about having more weapons slots or anything that might be ridiculous like that, I just want to have all my BO powers, and for all those who complain about the idea of lower tier retrofits, the BO powers is the last thing that would make sense to not upgrade.

More weapon and console slots are necessary too, and it's not as if it wasn't believable. My Miranda could already blow up Negh'Vars, and if a Defiant can have 7 weapon slots a Constitution can have 8. It's not a matter of space. However my main concern is the BO-layout. I tried to make rules so everybody could build his own preferred layout (that is appropriate for the ship class), but that post got buried.
