# 1 Advanced Escort vs MVAE
03-01-2012, 05:16 PM
Hello,

I really like the Prometheus Design, however I dont know whether to get the AE or MVAE.
The AE will cost way less money, and Im actually not a huge fan of the 3 ship split anyways. They look ugly individually and there seems to be no logic behind making 1 ship split into 3 when you could have fighters instead or just make 3 medium sized ships. I suppose you could be your own fleet with Photonic fleet and Scorpion Fighters lol.

I like the BOff stations on the AE as well, I can run BO3 and THY3 plus more science heals.
Oh and I think ill be using this for PvE mostly as I have a Defiant Retrofit for PvP.

What are your opinions on it?

Sounds like you already made up your mind.

You don't have to use the separation ability if you don't like it.

Does it make you very powerful? Maybe I just dont understand it very well.

Are these correct?
You split into 3 ships, each with "captain type."
The pet ships cant be destroyed only disabled right.
Your current abillities get replaced by the MVAE corresponding vector's.

Nope, the abilities listed for each vector only apply to the pets. You retain all your abilities and weapons in whichever vector you choose to control. Things that change depending on the vector you choose to control include: speed, turn rate, power levels, shield and hull hp.

Is it possible to recombine yourself even if the other parts of the MVAM are disabled?

Yep, just click on whichever vector ability you used to separate again and you'll recombine.

Just keep in mind that it is an escort and the vectors have less hp then the whole thing. That being said, it is blazingly fast, especially in vector mode (second to the defiant I believe)

The logic behind the multi vector assualt is quite simple, you attack from 3 directions at once and confuse and flank them.

In game it does not work this way.

If I recall the MVAM was very very effective in the TV show. For the very short screen time it had.

Also remember the Enterprise D, got captured by three old BOP's under ferengi control. Simply put 3 weak vessels had a tactical advantage over one large strong one.
