Here are some updates, typo corrections, as well as answers to some of your questions. As always, all stats are not final, and subject to change at any time.

First, here are some answers to your questions:
  • No, the Galaxy Saucer separation console and the Odyssey Chevron Separation module are not interchangeable. The Galaxy console does not work on the Odyssey nor vice versa.
  • Why Transphasic? Well despite how some people feel about them, they are actually much better when dumb-fired. That is, if you don't care about trying to launch a torpedo at a target when the shields are down, the overall dps of transphasics is superior. This is particularly the case with critters, who are not smart enough to wait for a shield to drop to fire a torpedo. When testing critters with transphasic vs photons or quantums, a critter with transphasics always outperforms. As a player, they may not be a popular option, but they work real well on critters.
  • These ships are not meant to represent new standards in ship stats. No, you will not be able to upgrade your old ships, nor will be making older ships better. These ships are meant to feel powerful, but not replace all existing ships. Their turn rate alone gives them a serious disadvantage. If these ships play out to be too over powered, we will real them back in line.
  • Each ship variant has different power levels. I neglected to report that accurately in my first post. This is updated below.
  • All 6 ships have the same BOff seating. Any discrepancy is purely a typo. They don't have different slotting because frankly there isn't a lot of options left that would make sense for a cruiser and that wouldn't blow balance out of the water.
  • The Odyssey and the Bortasqu' each come with a new super awesome bridge (not a complete new interior). This bridge is only usable on these ships.
  • These new ships have different costume than the base version. The parts are not interchangeable.
  • Q.) "So hoh'sus means something along the lines of "killing wind" if I'm not mistaken...Are the klingons trying to be poetic, or just resorting to fart jokes?" A.) Can't it be both?
  • Q.) "4. Sensor analysis on the science ones seem to be a little extra boost to them is there gonna be plans to give tac and eng versions something extra too?" A.) The Science version sacrifice offensive capability, so Sensor Analysis is meant to compensate for that. If Sensor Analysis turns out to be too powerful we will either modify it or remove it. Its not meant to raise the bar for the entire line. Its easier/safer to lower a bump on the floor then it is to raise the entire floor to the level of the bump.


Overview:
  • There are 3 new Advanced Odyssey Cruisers and 3 New Bortasqu' Battle Cruisers.
  • No, I do not have any info for you on pricing, but they will be C-Store ships.
  • All ships that separate will not allow you to fly the pet crafts (like MVAM). They are deployable combat pets and are not playable in any fashion. Part of the reason is because we donít want to take away that special ability from the MVAM Prometheus. Also, note when you separate a ship, you donít really change what you are - you only change stats. So in the case of the Odyssey escort or the Bortasqu BoP, if you were to fly it, you would keep all your weapons, and not gain any of the weapons or abilities that the escort pet gains. Thatís just how the system works.
  • All ships that separate use new technology that allows you to separate while flying. Also, all re-docking animations will look exactly like your ship (a marked improvement on how the galaxy saucer sep and MVAM works). This new technology will only work on these new ships for now. We will eventually start working on upgrading the other ships once we are certain this new tech is solid.
  • Each ship comes with its own special console. These consoles may be equipped on any of their sister ships, in any console slot. They may not be equipped on the standard models or any other ship. Each is part of a Set. The 3 piece set bonus:
    • Decreases the recharge time of the set console abilities
    • Bonus Skill Stats (Odyssey: Starship EPS, Starship Hull Plating, and Starship Armor Reinforcements Skills. Bortasqu': Starship Targeting Systems, Starship Energy Weapon Specialization, and Starship Energy Weapon Specialization Skills)
    • Slight increases your ship's Turn Rate.

You should really flip flow the Lt Tac and Science for the Commander Engineering on the respective variants. And give each variant 5 of the matching Console, like the engineering one has.

Thanks Al, as i said on the Jupiter broadcasting live earlier thank you and I look forward to testing the 3 Oddy classes out on tribble.

Also thanks for posting this at the weekend and supposedly your time off.

Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser have a total of +15 to it stats while the others have a total of +20 to there stats. Is this intentional or a typo?

The OOC has +5 to all. Weapons, Shields, Engine and the one I also always forget (Aux).
But you`re right about the Bortas... qu' (why did the qu' got added?).

Bortas means 'Revenge', Bortasqu' essentially means 'Super Revenge'
