Huh. Well, point defense still seems like an oddly weak and off-topic perk for a heavy escort. Maybe it's better than it seems. If it's universal and not locked to escorts . . . meh, whatever. I guess it's another oddball console to dump in an otherwise marginally used slot, which might be useful for certain builds.

it annihilates fighters and does x3 damage against frigates. you can rip through frigates 4 or 5 levels higher than you in seconds. its a very useful weapon and will become very dominant when carriers are involved.

That makes it sound like it's more of a full-on turret weapon that goes in a console slot. So that's interesting, I guess. Is it locked to escorts only?

why would there be? its a 140 year old design! it should be a tier 1 ship if anything. during the dominion war they seemed little more then light cruisers, completely inferior in combat to the very upgradeable bops.

So would this make the Akira or Heavy Escort ships viable for a VA to use in PvE?

no, only a tier 5 level of consoles, station powers and hitpoints would. just like to echo that the akira should be tier 5, in heavy cruiser terms it was second only to the soverign

I've been on the T5 bandwagon as well, and to date Cryptic has dodged the issue. Unless I missed their reasoning somewhere.

Yeap ... I like it and gave it a permanent home on my Defiant retrofit.

You know ... I would really have liked this new ship to have a T-5 counterpart. Love the console, but sad that the ship is useless to me.

Same can about be said of the Excelsior...yet we have Excelsiors still in use in-game. They could rebuild these ships from scratch, or the silhouette of these ships with new technology. I would say that canon in this game has been ***** to the point where this issue just shouldnt matter anymore.
