At about 1 hour ten minutes. Apologies in advance for the wincing you're going to do at the hushed "wows" and "oh my gods" of the sycophantic host.

There are three versions of the Kling and Fed flagships, engineering, tactical, and science variants. I guess this to elimate any downside to making an all cruiser FAW team

10 console slots, which is one more than any other ship. Each variant has it's own special console power, which is pretty much free given the extra slot. On the Klingon side "launch BoPs" was mentioned. On the Fed side Saucer separation, worker bees, and an escort pet. Best thing, you can put all three onto the same ship.

Science variant has sensor analysis. On an eight beam array cruiser that doesn't need to switch targets because it's hitting everything with FAW anyway this is completely,stupidly OP

Cryptic is either far more clueless than anyone of us has ever imagined, or they are actually trying to bleed this game dry.

So, will there be any reason, whatsoever, for anyone to not fly a c-store Odyssey or Bortas?

Separating them will give them better turnrates than their limited edition counterparts. You'll be able to focus on whatever you want with it. 10 Console Slots (Wonder if the engi version gets 5 engineering slots...) Pet DPS. Pet Healing. Huge hull HP numbers. Good tanking skills. Faw is still broked. Hmm... Put me down for all 6

The next incarnation of PvP... +1 Flagships Online? I think probably, yes.

Remember the time when Starfleet seemed to consist of Constitutions only?

Guess someone got kinda nostalgic.

Now release all class versions of all other ships as well, so everyone can fly his favorite again.

I don't think this will be that bad. The tac version won't have the turn rate of the Excelsior, its going to handle like a schoolbus. Spawning an NPC Defiant isn't going to have more of an affect than Fleet Assistance already does. The Engineer version will probably be decent, but saucer separation isn't that great anyway. The stardrive becomes a poor man's escort, still fairly poor on damage and with no DHCs. The Sci cruiser might be interesting, but I haven't seen many sci cruisers work out well in the past.

Personally i'd rather they fix the broken things we have now before they add new broken things, but let's wait and see the exact specs. I'm sure they'll be fantastic, then lots of people will buy it just in time for it to be nerfed :p

Come on guys, these Kirk wannabees are easy prey right now and they'll be even more fun to rip apart in their shiny +1 toys. Saucer separation or feeble escort pets won't make any difference when s.o. doesn't even know how to balance shields.

I don't see a reason why PvP is doomed because some cruisers get free consoles.

This is the tip of the iceberg. I think everyone that's not kidding themselves know more will be coming. Best to prepare to abandon ship now, while the game is still "fun".
