I'd still like to see it. I'm more interested in the build than the look at this juncture.

There's a console to the right of the ship vendor on the desk where you get it.

Odyssey Class

To see the Boff loadout, click here.

Consoles are exactly the same as the Star Cruiser / Exploration Cruiser Retrofit. 4 ENG, 3 SCI, and 2 TAC. Which is a little disappointing for the newest flagship. I was hoping for a 4,3,3 console config.

Also the "Odyssey Bridge" is just an updated version of the Star Cruiser Bridges. Nothing special.

The Odyssey isn't the "flagship." The Odyssey is just a class of ship. The Ent-F is the Flagship, and it's probably the +1 version in the C-Store.

For a ship called "flagship" just having a 4ENG, 3SCI 2TAC is a bit disappointing indeed. Personally I prefer 4E 3T 2S which is why I don't use the Star cruiser. Wouldn't 4E 3S 3T be better in this case?

So far it just looks like a Star Cruiser with 3k more hull :|

+1 ships generally get an extra Console spot, and an extra BOFF ability. Base ships do not. 4/3/3 is probably what we'll see on the +1.

I'd also think the 2 Universal BOFFs make it look somewhat different from a Starcruiser.

But we also haven't seen a Tier 5 ship with 10 console slots and 13 Boff powers yet, which is what your post seems to be suggesting. Not that I wouldn't complain about that, actually, since I'm pretty much going to buy the C-Store versions of both FED and KDF ships. But if they do they should make them the first true Tier 6 ships.

I suspect the C-Store Odossey will come with a 3/3/3 console layout and they'll juggle around the Boff layout, but it will still have 12 boff powers total.

Actually what Id love for them to do would be to release three C-Store versions of each: One with a Lt Cmd Engineering, one with a Lt Cmd Tactical, one with a Lt Cmd Science, make the universal stations Lt and Ensign and adjust the console layout to fit each version (or 3/3/3).

We haven't really seen a +1 version of a T5 ship before so it's all somewhat new ground. I'm guessing the Odyssey will be laying the foundation for other T5 ship updates in the game. I know a lot of people have asked for a T5 Sovereign update.

But the Sovereign is already T5. :p

Now a T5 +1 Sovereign might just get me out of my Excelsior. And a T6 Sovereign would definitely do it.

T5 +1 Refits and T6 Retrofits of all the T5 base ships. Do it Cryptic!

EDIT: Before someone yells at me about P2W +1 ships at T5, we all know it's coming. Before the +1's there were the VA Retrofits. And then when the +1's started rolling out we got devs talking about +1's for ALL tiers. The ship has sailed and honestly I'd rather get my new toys sooner rather than later.
