Having tested the New Odyssey cruisers on Tribble, I find myself with a request for the Dev's. I love the new bridge and wonder if its going to be released individually on the C-Store.
Also the Aquarius escort....I find myself oddly drawn to its charms and humbly ask the Dev's to consider releasing this nifty little ship as an individual vessel on the C-Store, either as a high end small craft (like shuttles and runabouts), but with the quad phaser cannons and torpedoes foward, phaser turret and torpedoes aft.
Even as a small escort vessel perhaps with scaling hull strength dependent upon level (though in the interest of not making it overpowered perhaps a little lower than the standard strength of the tactical escort retrofit or a fleet escort). As a special ability it could have "assault mode", in which its nacelles withdraw into the hull, cutting power to the warp drive and diverting it to impulse engines to provide a boost to speed, turn rate and defense (so the enemies shots miss more frequently). The ability could either run for a limited time, or be sustained, like the MVA mode, but with an auto disengage in order to exit a system (can't enter warp without the nacelles). The ability would then require a cooldown period.
As you can tell, I've given it some thought and would love some feedback either from players or in an ideal world, Devs.
Well granted the bridge slots into that point, the aquarius doesnt. It's a non playable vessel with the Odyssey tactical cruiser so making it a playable vessel is, to a degree, a viable financial opportunity. Players who want the Odyssey my also want the Aquarius, ergo, more CP needed and more money spent.
Me, I simply refuse to pay that amount of money for the Odyssey bundle or individually since I already pay subscription fees and the odyssey really isn't that great anyways, sure it looks cool, but its a lumbering space whale. However, I'd definitely buy the aquarius.
