# 1 Suricata's Ship Tier Charts
06-25-2011, 02:37 PM
Due to the new forum shakeups, my old ship chart thread was merged with my star charts thread which has caused confusion. With these new sections been created, I have recreated the thread so that people can find the chart more easily. You can see the most uptodate and complete chart below:-

Fixed some of the Klingon ship lengths due to feedback on my typo's!

Added the unknown ship from recent screenshots and fleet actions video, for now I've placed it under specials until I figure out where to put it.

Nice layout.

If I were to make one suggestion, it would be to move the MVAE to match the Galaxy-X and the Vulcan Science Vessel since it is not a refit. That spot should be reserved for the T5 retrofit version of the T3 Advanced Heavy Escort ship .

Been working a bit more on the charts today, the season 4 version is still a work in progress, but you should be able to better see the direction it is going in (The extra LCARS detailing is still missing and I stil need to add alot of the stats as well as the ship siluettes).

I did have it that way, but it stretched the Klingon ships even further with empty spots, luckily, the chart is very modular, so I can very easily alter the chart as new ships are added.

Looks pretty impressive. Well done Suricata.

One comment: You note under Extra Abilites that the Oberth offers +5 Power to Aux, you should also note that the NX Class offers +5 Power to Weapons.

Nice chart.
A quick note: If I'm correct, I believe you switched the labels for Excelsior Class and the Excelsior Refit under the Advanced Heavy Cruiser Refit.

Updated the chart to include the Rhode Island, also fixed a few mistakes that were present.

I'm currently working on adding the shuttles to the chart, as well as making a better guide for understanding how the stats are displayed.
