The new Federation Escort Refit, Thunderchild, and Klingon Battle Cruiser, K'Tinga Class Refit, are now in full production for their respective factions. Learn more about these new ships at the C-Store.
i love both ships but there are no windows option for the klingon one, please add that as soon as poss.
and the thunderchild, the skin 6 option is only available with the thunderchild parts. i assume that is because the others dont have option 6 made for the yet, but can you at least take the option 6 away from the drop down menu when using parts that dont offer it.
also little disapointed that the new klingon ship cant be customized with either of the old k'tinga or d7. i know both of them cant be mixed and matched but i would have hoped the new ship could be customizable with at least one of them.
So you change a bunch off passives against active Powers with a Cooldown?
I don't do PvP, so yeah. The Grappler is a killer on an Advanced Escort with it's turn rate; you can lock a target in place for a few seconds to get a couple extra volleys on a down shield, and it operates on a separate cooldown from tractors IIRC. Multi-Vector is a no-brainer as well - it lasts as long as you need it and adds a ton of firepower. If they pull the Cloak from the Defiant Refit and make it a console (which is likely), that also becomes a must have for a lot of players.
The point defense guns are a toss-up, tho - I don't know that they actually help as much as adding extra damage from a weapon boost console. It's nice to have a console that shoots down seeking torps, but the recycle on them is pretty slow.
