ok, so flying around esd today i noticed that the nebula was rebadged a sci vessel, now my hope is that they are just rying to throw people off cause it is a cruiser. i as a tac officer was actually looking forward to playing my favorite ship, and now that is possibly an impossability... i will not buy it if it is a sci vessel, and i will whine and cry like the sci's for equal right as far as an escort goes... thus the escorts would be the only peeps getting no love...

plz cryptic leave the nebula as a cruiser so we can "all" enjoy it. there is no reason a sci player cannot use a cruiser, they are just being stubborn...


the other problem this brings up with me is the lack of canonality with this move. the nebula was an explorer cruiser, it has the same armaments as a galaxy, and is just a bit smaller. three for and three aft weapons hardly would do it justice, and the fact that only sci peeps would benefit from it (being a multi role ship in canon) further makes me lose the star trek feel. i have been drooling for this ship since the game released and now i feel like because a couple of people complained, (though a far vaster majority wanted it to stay cruiser) u guys caved in. i have baught every cruiser you released, but i have baught no sci vessels, and i will continue to not purchase sci vessels (as i know most tacs and engineers feel the same way..). a vessel loses to much when it is a sci vessel for it to be apealing to tac and engineer.... if your gonna give the sci's something, develop a new ship that no one cares about... but be fair and make the cannon ships (unless otherwise slated like a defient being an escort, or the olympic being a sci for example) cruisers.

again i am disapointed that the devs decided to make it a cruiser, and then caved.... really lame for the rest of us... the disapointment makes me lose interest in the game....

While its nomenclature is a sci vessel, I wouldn't be surprised if it operated like a cruiser in action.

To be honest, I am glad they made it a sci vessel as it does make sense.

I use science vessels on my tactical alt, and I have tons of fun with her.

dude, ive tried it, missin two weapons slots is a big deal.... further more, the powers are all messed up, i actually enjoyed the challenge of playing a sci vessel as a tac, and no, i do not have a closed mind, as anyone in my fleet as i will try anything... but it is impractical, and made me go from being a strong dps, to a mediocre dps, and only then was it situational... to play as a tac in a sci ship, you have to be playing with a specific group of people to make it work... i for one just wanted to be able to enjoy the ship as apposed to being /meh, about it... its the sci guys who are close minded and whining and complaining about every ship that comes out cause its not a sci ship... i have yet to see a sci in a cruiser outside of my fleet, and it works very well in my fleet. i see more scis in escorts lately, but still they complain that they want more.... sci's can play in any ship and be decently dependable and practical, it is not backwards compatible however, tacs are very weak in sci ships... and im just saying how disapointed i was, as i had started planning on how i was gonna build it and started stock piling equipment for it, which is now a waste of badges and emblems... i wouldnt have been as disapointed or upset if they had come out from the get go and said it was gonna be a sci ship, but they screwed me over by changing it mid stride... they should put it back to a cruiser, and make a new ship for the scis and escorts...

I dunno. The sci vessels seem to have quite the edge over cruisers in many ways.

also, i have fun with mine, but its not practical, and when its time to play and not fool around, i have to switch... i do not have infinate respec tokens, and i do not enjoy switching ships all the time... my tac is my main character, and i cannot bring a tac in a sci ship to stf's like terradome, or ka, or even the cure (doable in the cure, but not fair to the rest of the group since we dont down things as quickly....)

I'm glad its a science vessel. Cruisers have gotten more than enough love. Plus the Nebula is really a multi-role ship often used for scientific missions:

except that as a tac your primary position is dps, and missing 2 weapons slots hurts alot... also, its tuffer to play with power settings

i mean i just feel that making it the first ship with a universal b.o. slot, then making it the weaker out of the three classes of ships was kinda stupid... i just feel like having the universal boff on anything but a cruiser is a waste.... i garunteee they will see less sales on it now that it is a sci vessel.. im not saying staggeringly less, but noticably....

I would have preferred it sticking to being a new star cruiser, so I can get rid of the hideous things we have now...I mean...umm...the not quite as shiny as I would like...thing.

But I can live with it being Sci.
