As it stands now, Fed NPC Battleships only have one skin: the Typhoon class. Since the Feds have a ton of ship classes, I think it makes sense to have more than one possible Battleship configuration.

So I propose that the three Star Cruiser skins (Avenger, Vanguard, Emissary) be removed from Cruiser NPCs and added to Battleship NPCs. It wouldn't make any gameplay difference, and would make each Battleship seem more unique.

I do not know about this. Haveing the Star Cruiser as an NPC cruiser vessel dose make the Fed vs Fed battles a bit easier to determin who is a player ans who is an NPC by silouette. Alot of players take the Assault cruisers over the Star for there tier 5 ship. And the NPC ships tend to grab the Star hulls. For events such as the Mirror event this allows for generaly easier target selection rather than relying on the auto target.

An alternative would be to allow the The Jupiter class to be made an NPC option, Dreadnought Cruiser, or a modified Odyssey. The Odyssey could end up with a silouette issue becouse of how popular it appears to be. The Dreadnought Cruiser I personaly do not see that flown as much sence the Odyssey was released in the C-Store.

The Galaxy-X and Odyssey cruisers are in as Dreadnought-class NPCs (the level above Battleship).

I don't see what difference it makes silouette-wise whether the Star Cruisers are cruiser-level or battleship-level. It wouldn't affect the player-controlled versions, all it would do is make the Star Cruiser skins appear on Battleships instead of Cruisers

All three of those are already Dreadnought NPCs.

Reclassify these vessels as battleships for players
upgrade their Tac boff slots by at least one rank and make them visibly better than tougher than carriers so everyone KNOWS

Photonic Star Cruisers are already called ... Class Battleship and I think Fleet Support Star Cruisers, too. It's always quite amusing to see ships with basically no firepower called Battleship.

On the other hand, naming conventions in Star Trek never were that consistent and would it really have an impact on gameplay if the Star Cruiser would be called Battleship tomorrow? There will be no change in BOFF stations or stats by Cryptic anyway and we already have quite a lot "tactical" cruiser choices. Probably the only thing that would happen is that even more tactical captains will pick the ship than already do. I have to ask, do we really want that to happen?

Yes we do
we need to get as many tactical cruisers as possible and cut the escort population dramatically

i'm in for any effort that will remove the fugly starcruiser skins. And the more people would take the "new fed battleship", the more i can blow up in pvp.
i can allready see it, 5 "battleships" in cure space elite not able to take out 3 raptors before they reach the kang. it will be glorious!

I'm sorry but why? Why do we need to cut down Tacs in Escorts? Because you want a say in how somebody else plays the game?

I admit I don't let the guy who has a Beam Array Escort into my Fleets Elite STFs, but I tell him why I don't let him in. Not to go change his build.

Guys, I'm not saying we should buff the playable Star Cruisers or anything like that. All I'm suggesting is that the NPC Star Cruisers should show up as Battleship skins rather than Cruiser skins.
