You take your current VA ship through all the VA ranks and then get a new ship at Fleet Admiral.

They need to rename the level 61 rank however. The idea of having thousands of Fleet Admirals running around space isn't exactly canon.
Tier 6 would mean actually more powerful, which the current VA ships are not.
They are different but they have neither more BO nor more console slots than the RA ships.

Thats what we thought about them changing the C-Store ships. Now look at the Excelsior (and others)

The way I see it. We'll probably just stick with T5 even if the level cap is increased. I think it'll end up like ground combat in space (Making your boffs captains and giving them their own ships); that's probably the best way to do it without getting everyone mad at T6.

I think the plan is to have your Fleet Admiral pilot your flagship or T6 ship and have a bunch of T1-T5 ships that act as your fleet. Basically it is your away team, but in space.

I'm not for nor am I against. All I will say is IF they give us more powerful T6 ships they will of course make the PvE baddies more powerful which in the end will net more of the same we have now at T5. The only benefit out of the proposal I see is more flexibility, which will equate to more space spam in PvP.

# 19 All non-canon no thanks

The "Tier 6" ship seems like a bad idea to me. The last thing I want as an endgame player is to have to switch over to some non-canon ship like the Enterprise F just to be competitive. I'm also not at all interested in switching over to running a task force with one Tier 6 and a bunch of tier 1-5's. No thanks.

What would be good for "Tier 6" is improved flexability and officer slots. As someone who likes escorts I never get to play with the tier 3 and 4 engineering bridge officer abilities. I'd love it if the bridge officer abilities were scalable with the ships. If going from tier 5 to tier 6 let me add some consoles to my Promethius class and maybe tweak her a bit, that would be worth something.

Make me trade her in for some fan designed Enterprise F and a bunch of space pets and I'll start looking to trade in Star Trek for Knights of the Old Republic.

T6 ships and a level cap increase need to come sooner than later, along with some new content. Not stupid Red Alerts and Defari Invasion crap!
