yes it does have a universal slot. or you dont have an Odyssey class. Not sure what your issue is. Its a really good ship. If you think its just another Star Cruiser then your propably do need advice. Not saying your a Troll but this thead feels a little trollish at this point. I could just be mis reading you.

And I'm not looking for advice on whether this is good for Tacticals or not. I was simply stating that for all the hullabaloo about the Odyssey class, it's a little disappointing in the fact that it's just a normal Star Cruiser from what I can see with the exception of the extra 3k Hull points.
It's not a DPS ship for sure. I did a TAC DPS build and it sucked. So now my Eng has it and it's set up as a tank with massive healing, I use it as a support ship when training our cadets in STFs and it has saved many a life. Yesterday I took a fleet member in an escort from 2% to 100% LOL.
With full AP it can still take out anything but takes an age to do it. I love it and can't wait for the C store version. Almost enough EDCs to fit it out with OMEGA gear as I have MACO on my TAC ship so will be interesting to see what that adds to the equation.
I use an extra TAC BO. I just find the 2 tac BOS with the mix of abilites I want and that dont share cool downs and it works for me. I stack purple tac consoles too. I feel like I have a good mix of damage and survivability. but hey I love the Assault Cruiser too but I like the extra TAC BO now. Enemies seem to pop faster a little faster for me now. I only use Science to heal systems and repel tractors. Engineering is dedicated to Healing hull with 1 ability to boost weapons power. I am sure my goals are different then yours.

While she may be a thing of beauty, I have to say I was a little disappointed when I got my Odyssey. As far as I can tell, it's a standard Star Cruiser with an extra 3000 health. Is that all? With all the excitement over the ship in the last few months I was expecting something special, maybe a Lt Universal station or just something to make it different to what is already in game.
Is the 3k health the only difference or am I missing something?
It isnt a bad ship for my sci captain but too be honest it is brutal seeing 5 showing up in an stf or pvping with it
