..why would it be? why would any cruiser be at that?

You want to turn on a dime you go escorts/bop
You want to turn on a quarter you go Sci ships
You want to turn on a quarter with a buttload of glue you go Galaxy
Dont even think about it with carriers.

I guess you missed the sarcasm smilie. The Excelsior is already as manouverable as a Qin Raptor. If you ask me, the Excelsior should have never come into beeing as a T5 ship. Over hundret years old and better than all those new shiny cruisers... :p

Tried and true, modular design. They probably had a ****ton of them which are just as easy to upgrade as it is to build entirely new ships, just like the Miranda.

Personally? If I was a starfleet admiral I'd never retire a ship until it was falling apart. I mean, if I retired a class, that means that no more are being actively built, or it's role is being filled by a newer ship. No point in sending a bunch of ships that are in perfectly good condition to sit in some surplus yard.

Those old Akula class ships (starfleet command)? I'd use them as convoy escorts or planetary defense if they aren't easily upgraded.

You know its not a bad idea. It's similar to the light cruiser retrotfit that was thrown around a long while ago. You sacrifice several weapons slots and some hull strength for a goodly return in maneuverability.

EEP Can't find it...

Sorry, only KDF is allowed to have "battle" cruisers which are actually enjoyable to fly.

On the otherhand, only Feds are allowed to have a MASSIVE list of available RA/VA Cruisers.


Welcome to mutually lopsided design, please enjoy your stay.

I don't see them adding another Tier 4 Cruiser to the game, deal with it for the 10 levels or take an Escort.

To everyone suggesting Tier 5 ships, The topic is Captain level 30 to 39.

Klingons were also the only ones allowed to fly carriers. That stayed true, didn't it?

Oh, wait...

You mean like when only the Federation had Sci ships?



Here's something you can save for a rainy day: Exclusive Carriers, Cruisers with good turn rates, BoPs with universal BOFF stations and battle-cloaking, almost totally nude orion women.


None of these things were ever enough to boost KDF population.

Sorry for the OT.

If the Ambassador gets into the game, it might be a T4 Cruiser. And since Ambassadors are more maneuverable than Galaxies...

Theres a difference in limiting mobility (Excelsior), and forgetting to take off the parking brake (Galaxy).
