Realism is somewhat pointless. You can get blown up 10 times a day and never need to go and get a new ship. This isn't Eve.

That only covers my point about the potential loss of the saucer... not about the weapon mounts or power systems/shield generators....

sorry genuinely cant remember which one, but the spinal phaser was discussed as being shortened during separation to a "scatter gun" variant as well as the drive section having near escort level manoeuvrability etc.
That has nothing to do with needing multiple Consoles to achieve a specific goal like the Odyssey does- which is what I assumed you were talking about. The above is simply 2 different Consoles that have 2 different features being used on a single ship. It's no different then putting a Point Defense Console and Grapple Console on a ship: two 2 Consoles with 2 unassociated features.

If you're familiar with the ships then you know that's already somewhat covered. Look at the Odyssey example. It loses Hull, Eng, Shield, and Aux when Separated, but games some Weapons.

i just hope it wont be a whole new Galaxy X just for separation and that its a simple case of taking my sep-console from my EC refit and putting it on my Galaxy X to use the ability.

My guess is that the Galaxy Dreadnought Console will either be free or will be on sale in the C-Store. They won't tie it to the Galaxy R Console, IMO.

that would make sense, it would be nice for it to be free or to not have to pay out for it again but i suppose i can understand why cryptic would make us cough up for such a potentially useful item

I had the fortune of watching STOked's live stream this week. In a bit of the interview with Al that didn't seem to make it to the recorded show, Al briefly mentions Gal-X and Saucer Separation in relation to the Galaxy Ship pack. It was a very generalized statement, with very little meat on it, but it led me to believe we will see a new console as part of that pack.

I just hope they don't make me re-buy my ships as part of that pack. I already have the Galaxies. I don't want to have to re-buy them.

It was my impression that the star drive section had a phaser array comparable to the saucer's two main arrays that was covered bu the saucer when docked.

Also unless the saucer is more than self sufficient in generating power to shield itself and power the extra arrays, it would not provide a power boost to have it docked.
