This ship sucks for Tact Officers! This is a Engineering Officers Dream! You need to make Ships for all 3 Styles. I am a Tact Officer! This ship will just sit in my Ship List collecting Dust! This is just showing Favoritism to Engineers and telling Tact and Sci Officers we don't care about you.
well, it is a cruiser. you cant just turn it into a escort.
besides it has two universal consoles. you can make it into the most offensive tac cruiser in the game, or the most versatile science cruiser. they have done that to allow people to fit science or tac.
The turn rate makes me go 'sigh'. I could've cared less about the bridge officer setup as long as she was fun to fly... and it kind of looks like she won't with that kind of maneuverability. I don't see how people can even bear to pilot the Vo'Quv; to me the Galaxy-class' turn is unacceptable and the Heavy Cruiser kind of nailed the "I'm a cruiser and am not nimble without making my pilot annoyed" sweetspot.
Being as equally nimble as the Sovereign was pretty much the minimum to me. >_>;
