I know all of you love the odyssey it is a beautiful ship, but seriously tacs and science flying it. Alot of elite STFs are not going well becuase of alot and I mean alot of people are flying that boat. Really people stick to a ship that works for your class not beacuse its new and pretty. Please!

This ship is good for any class, especially with universal setups... So I don't see what your complaint is. Really it's a broad siding monster, not a DPS machine. It tanks well and wears down shields to deliver the all important kill shots with torps when timed correctly. Essentially the setup should go 3x beam array and 1 torpedo fore, and the same for aft. Any class can utilize this simple but effective set up. Tacs get more DPS, Sci gets more time to lay their devious plots, and engineers get to tank longer doing this. Once the newness wears off this ship will become a less common sight, as people switch to ships that serve their play style better.

Actually, science works well with the ship. Can't speak for Tactical.

Tried this as a Tactical and sorry but it's a uber fail. I even tricked it out with the best consoles and best MK XI purples i could get but it was doing so little damage and was still pretty squishy (can't tank too well as a Tac toon), not to mention the bad turn rate makes putting torps on fore or aft pointless...

I have always flown a Cruiser as a Tac (mainly Star Cruiser). All depends what you are used to and like to fly around. Just wait until they release the next new escort and see then all flying around.

Chill out dude! People are having fun. It's a game! Just go with the flow.

Your playing with PUGs. You get good groups, you get bad groups.

If the Odysseys are causing you that much trouble give it a week and people will be back to what works for them.

I can't give an informed opinion, because I don't have a high enough toon to use it after the mission to obtain it...

But I can say that, all through that mission, what constantly went through my mind was...

"Looks Like A Fish, Moves Like A Fish, Steers Like a Cow"

In general, tacs can do well on cruisers. My tac + assault cruiser combo does some pretty good DPS for a non-escort and can even turn at a decent rate when I use my tac abilities.

I'm just starting to play with the odyssey, and it seems to play like a star cruiser with a bit more flexibility. Yeah, sure, if you wanted to min/max tanking ability, you have to be an eng... but personally I like being able to put out a bit more DPS and have a bit more maneuverability.

Anyone know if the Saucer Separation Console from the the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit will work with the free Odyssey starship from the Anniversary mission once the C-store version of the Odyssey goes live? Especially since the Exploration Cruiser-R is already useless, anyone who bought that ship from the C-store shouldn't have to pay again to obtain its more viable replacement.
