If they are revamping the galaxy x does that mean you can change the 3rd nacelle separate from the hull.

It would be good to have this ability to seperate the saucer section but it doesn't need it. I use the Drednought all the time, it's my main ship and i think it turns just fine. Yeah ok it does turn a bit slower than others but you just need to anticipate the enemy movements and you can keep up with them.

The saucer sep is a cool gadget though I'd quite happily spend hours playing with it.

Now what i want on my Dreadnought is the Ablative armour console.

Im all for the Gal-X getting saucer sep, and the idea of having to buy both the R and the X to use it, seems right

according to geko on stoked the saucer will be more escort like, the antennas will shoot cannons and the disconnected from the warp core lance will fire beam overload level shots. the star drive you will fly will have a wide angle sawed off shotgun like effect from the part of the lance still attached to it.


poor, poor galaxy R. make its 2 lt and 1 ensign stations universal and we will call it even.

I reckon the star drive wide beam will be similar in looks to the doomsday device weapon

I agree, it didn't take long for the Galaxy-R to become the ginger stepchild of all cruisers. Sure, you can split it in two, but there's a cooldown for that. And the Negh'var is hands down better in every way. It moves better, it can mount DHC (although really, the Vor'Cha is the cruiser for that), and wel... it's just a bit "bleugh".

Ways of fixing this, make the Galaxy-X along with the Oddysey and Bortas tier 6 and buff them appropriately. It'd allow them to be as good as they "ought" to be, without unbalancing the game.

Make saucer seperation worth while: As it stands, aside from the turnrate it's pointless. Your saucer just doesn't do much, and the additional offensive power doesn't exist. The way in which the Stardrive's enhanced firepower is implemented is through a game mechanic that no longer exists: "+x% to power", with a hard power cap, things like this are pointless. Unless the hardcap is remoevd, they need to buff the Stardrive's combat ability some other way, like a flat boost to energy weapons equivilent to equipping additional energy weapon consoles. This would allow it to do damage better, but not tread on the toes of escorts.

I also think that perhaps if it had lt cmdr tactical, and lt cmdr engineering, and the top power for each was greyed out or accessible in the appropriate mode, it'd be qutie intresting. So in one piece, you've got your lt cmdr engineering and lt tactical, but seperate, and it's the other way around.

Edit: A bar to give the saucer commands like carrier pets could be useful as well if it was buffed a little, and if some unique "innate" attack patterns were added to the Stardrive, that could also make it more useful.

Sorry for the threadjack, but I feel that a class of ship being totally obsoleted by this one is still kinda on topic.

I very much like the bump to tier 6 idea... that would be mighty awesome...
I hope Al reads our ideas
Hell, perhaps bump only the venture class to tier 6? I mean, it is supposed to have been developed along with the oddisey :p

I have my doubts that this will become a reality! I hope that it does come to fruition, but never the less, I'm not getting my hopes up!

Heres some interesting stuff 1 most saucer / body ships could separate going back to the constitution class as seen in the STAR TREK manga. (she just couldn't reattach without drydocking at a shipyard) and in the star trek magazine published plans the sovereign was supposed to have the ability. OK so what if the spinal lance is attached to the stardrive section or better yet since Prometheus has proven that starfleet vessels are capable of having multiple warp cores I would like to have something cool like an alternate mode lower damage faster cooldown spinal blaster. Also the ability to mount cannons just on the saucer or maybe have the pet have a remote spinal lance trigger would work. I mean the turn rate on a saucer should technically be better since one it houses less tech therefore less mass and also its got two large honking impulse engines along a its main aft axis. I also want to be able to mix and match galaxy envoy celestial monarch and venture designs in the dreadnought.
