I know one kind of escort that'll not be too put out by losing a lt cmdr slot. The FAWscort. A FAWscort with a hangar could prove to be utterly viscious.

Exactly.
This escort pretty much makes other escorts useless -- it still has the firepower of any of them, it has the defense of the fleet, and it can throw additional craft into the fray (except for the Stalker, but who cares -- tractors or shield heals or additional burst damage? forget about -- this thing will rip PvE up, at the very least).

So can KDF get this, too? Our one-hangar flight-deck cruiser is nice and all, but being a star cruiser with a hangar it sure can't match this offensive power (plays a great support/tank role, for sure, though).

Ah, Don. Nice to see another Ausmonaut.

So you're one of those w******** who drives a Prado down Chapel street, tying up two lanes so you can drop your kids off at the bus stop before school?



(I kid. You know I love you. :p )

I find this vessel interesting due to its station lay out. i wanted to see a starfleet built carrier that had 2 bays and was just a tad more manuverable but I suppose this will do.

You forgot the part where it has a worse than average tac layout with the dreaded 3 Ensign Tac stations.

This is exactly what the Doctor ordered!

My eng boff is definitely going to have EPtS1, EPtS2, Aux2SIF. Can replace EPtS2 with RSP1 for pvp.

I think the cooldown on the torp console would not be less than 2mins, so given that long cd, I'd definitely have a fore photon torp, a photon console and stick the console in Science/Eng.

The rest pretty much is my current escort config reborn.

Lends itself well to crowd control, if you ask me. BFAW1, TT1, TT1 <- All ensigns covered, tanking retained, Lieutenant-through-Commander skills open for serious DPS options.

That still leaves room for at least 1 instance of APO, 2 CRFs, and a Beam Overload, if so desired.

Plenty to like...
