That's from Armada right?

That could work. Give it a cool down of 2 mins, make it 100% resistant to torps. Great against borg

lmao the joke is on you my friend, the next new ship to come out IS a sovereign refit! Corbomite shield is not a bad idea, it sounds awesome. But 1st I want them to make her as canon as possible 1st. She is a canon ship after all and need to get her right.


For the 360 launcher don't know did have one in the movies don't think so plus the quantum torpedo launcher is under the centre of the saucer section. Just had a thought if they do add a rapid fire quantum torpedo launcher they should add Picard's voice for fire quantum torpedoes from first contact? To make it more dramatic lol.

The Sovy Bridge Officer layout is currently:

1 Commander Engineer
1 Lt Commander Engineer
1 Lt Science
1 Lt Tactical
1 Ensign Tactical

The Odyssey Bridge Officer layout is

1 Commander Engineer
1 Lt Science
1 Lt Tactical
1 Lt Commander Universal
1 Ensign Universal

If the BO layout is just a copy of the Odyssey, it may lead people away from the Oddy and I don't foresee Cryptic/PWE wanting to do that.

If the Sovy +1 is going to be a Tier 6 ship, changing the Ensign Tactical slot to a Lt Tactical slot (or a Lt Universal) might be the next step.

Oh lets see here for an accurate boff layout to the NCC1701E

Commander Riker -- Commander Tactical
Commander LaForge -- Commander Engineer
Lt. Commander Data -- Lt. Commander Universal
Doctor Crusher -- Commander Sci
Counselor Troi -- Lt Commander Sci
Commander Worf -- Commander Tactical
Lt. Hawk (or other minor command officer) -- Lt Tactical

So don't think we will ever see this in game...way to unbalanced...

However something that I thought might make a good addition with the T6 ships coming out is to set up some ships (maybe 1/2 of each class) that utlilize the standard layouts with 1 added power, the captain power. Oh they might have to make some new captain level boff powers (ie: Gravity Well IV, THY IV, DEM IV)

Example: Assault Cruiser T6

Captain Engineer
Lt Commander Engineer
Lt Science
Lt Tactical
Ens Tactical

Again, just an idea
not only unbalanced, also completely inacurate.

Data was only called commander...he was ltdcmdr infact. during the films it was never mentioned that he got promoted.

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/USS_...9#Command_crew

scroll to the commanding crew index...and see for yourself

2 ltcmdr slots (engi, sci)
1 commander (universal, because it is nowhere really stated what rikers expertise was, appart from having a beard, but let's asume tactical)
1 ltd tactical...worf was only acting, he is/was/will be not really part of the crew

adds up to 12 slots...the right amount for T5 ships. and in my opinion a cool layout

That's... much more of a science layout. Considering that the E never really depends on scientific tricks I think it'd be fairly inaccurate to give it the Atrox's layout with a Universal Commander.

yeah, but i just interpreted the original crew+ the rank they have to a Boff layout. Balancing is a completely other issue. and i considered riker as a tactical commander at the end of that sentence, even though it is never mentioned what his field of expertise was.

i fully agree that in that way the ship would be OP, but it added up nicely to 12 Boff slots when taking the real bridge crew as it is mentioned on memory alpha.

but anyway, cryptic will never go with a cruiser that has no commander engi slot.

my built would be

commander tactical: TT1, Fire at will 2, delta 2, Omega 3
ltd tactical: TT1, spread 2
ltcmdr engi: EPtS1, RSP1, Aux to SIF 2
ltcmdr sci: polarize hull1, HE2. TSS3 (not sure here)

well the sovy +1 needs to compete with the new odyssey class while obviously not being overpowered. So bumping up the tac boff and i think another science boff slot would be an good addition.

I'm not saying it's OP, I'm saying it doesn't feel like a variant of the Sovereign that we have so far. If you put an Engineer or Science commander in the Universal slot, it's a Science cruiser, not a Tactical one. If you put a Tactical Commander there, you have a strongly Tactical vehicle with balanced Science and Engineering, which will cost the thing in terms of survivability compared to the existing Sovereign.

What I think the likely BO setup will be is LtCmdr/Lt Tac, Cmdr/En Eng, Lt Sci. This would get you roughly equal Engineering and Tactical stations with the standard Science station.
