Im considering it... I bought the Vor'kang because it looks pretty neat mixed with the tokhat. But my Orion is in a marauder.

I know the forums here aren't really a representation of the majority of the community, but I am curious. How many of us bought the Venture yesterday?
I was sitting in my Dreadnought just outside DS9 with about four others.

I bought the Venture at 10:38 AM yesterday morning for my Captain 1 Engineer. Out-leveled it at 9:22 PM tonight. Oh how I wish there was twice as much content and half as much XP per mission.

Yeah, every single dreadnaught I've seen since the launch of the Venture has been a Venture-X. Suffice to say, I think the Galaxy-X has been phased out of service.

That I get skins for two other ships (and maybe 1-2 more if Cap'n Logan can get the Nebbie upgraded with this skin) is a bonus, along with the console. I only bought it for the Dread skin.

I haven't seen all Gal-R's or Exploration cruisers swapped over, though a good 50% that I've seen have had at least one or two parts off the Venture, 90% of the time usually the neck and pylons.

Yes, call me weird, but I'm just using the neck part of the Venture on my Galaxy, and it looks fantastic!

One of the other reasons for the purchase (this is going to incite anger I'm sure) is for the extra Science officer slot. Now all my main characters (see below) contribute at least one ability to the ship.

Too bad you can't just buy the ship costumes. I'd have ponied up for both. Alas, no X.5 ships for me.

I think it is a nice looking ship but... I find no use for Cruisers... So I would not buy it.

As a firm galaxy class hater, but with a weak for gimmicks I got my hands on it because it did look okeish in style so I was curious.

Now I still hate it when you put it on a galaxy class, but when you put this skin on the dreadnought something happened that I never expected.











I liked a galaxy class variant :O

did not buy...
waiting for sale + LTA stipend
and also for content to be released again... no use for toys if there is nothing left to play....

what i think about the Venture in terms of quality you can see here: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=230460

i like the ship but the lower rear end of the Galaxy is bugging the hell out of me.
