I remember reading that an Ensign Universal BO slot would be included. When running the shake down mission the universal slot is present, but after completing the mission and selecting the ship at ESD its gone. Is this a bug or is this on purpose, because in dev diary 13 it no longer states that the ship even comes with an ensign universal slot.
If they had to remove the ens-uni slot it should have atleast been made engineering and not science, it's a cruiser, not a bloody science ship. Now it's a crap ship for me. I don't like science abilities that much, I prefer tac and engineering.
I was really hoping to use that ensign universal for an engineer slot as well. I flew an Odessey-class around for awhile today long enough for me to decide to abandon it in favor of my trusty Nobel-class varient.
If I have to slot a LtCmdr Engineer, I may as well stick wiith the assault cruiser and get the ensign tact station to boot.
(Due to my disliking it so much and a serious lack of forethought on my part, I actually dismissed it. So no more Odessey for me until the +1 becomes available.)
But, I really am not going to miss it. Unless they suddenly decide to renovate the bridge layout.
