I note that the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship costs twice as much as the other special reward vessels (Cardassian Galor and Ferengi D'kora?) on the exchange. What makes it twice as much? Is there a reason, or is it just the cosmetics of the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship that people are after?

I am not positive, but I think it's just the rarity of the Attack Ship. The Galor and D'Kora were much more common, but the Attack Ship took quite a lot to get.

Isn't this obvious?

First of all, compared to the Galor or the D'kora, the Jem hadar ship is much more popular imo. The D'kora is fun, but its more of a 'lol' ship that anything, appearance wise.

The Galor isn't that awesome and pretty as well if you ask me.


And considering that the Galor and Ferengi ship has been obtainable for months, and they still are. The jem hadar has hardly popped up on the exchange until this recent update were u could have a chance at receiving a Jem hadar ship again.

People really thought the prices would jump to 100M so fast? Doubtful. The average player which has some brains know that they will be worth alot as soon as this 2 week event is over.

So again, u couldnt figure this out by yourself?

The reason why I am asking is that I have the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship, and was wondering if it was a really good ship, or if it wasn't that much difference than something else you can easily get in game or the cryptic store. And by comparison if the Ferengi or Cardassian ships were better than things you could get in game or the store.

If you're wanting an escort, the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship is kinda OP. Turn rate of 22 is higher than any escort Fed side, and is only bested KDF side by the B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit by one degree(though a multi-way tie with most other BoPs). 33,000 Hull is higher than any escort or BoP. Plus, you gain the "Victory is Life Enhancement -- 1% chance to strip one buff while using Polaron Weaponry" when use it with the Jem'Hadar Space Set.

Ferengi D'Kora is comparable to a Raptor KDF side, IMO, but has 4/4 weapons instead of 4/3 T5 Raptors have. With battle mode engaged, the thing is pretty good at DPS from what I've seen. Base stats look OK, but turning the Super Console 3000 into battle mode enhances it's turn-rate and weapons power.

Cardassian ships are equipped with the only Phaser-Disrupter dual proc beams in the game. Haven't looked at it too closely, but most say the ship is meh, but the Spiral Phasers are very good.

The jem'hadar ship is a pure pvp escort, for STF u have far better escorts, a MVAE or a fleet is more suitable.

Is a rare ship, they will run out soon in the exchange because the event was short (in the other hand, u can still get a galor..), that is the reason of the price.

It sounds like the Jem'Hadar is a keeper then. The Galor doesn't seem to impressive and well the Ferengi ships look like mushrooms. Were my captains all hobbits, the mushroom ship may be of interest, but they aren't, thank God.

On the brightside, the character I am going to give it to is low level, so I have some time to decide.

Thanks for the replies.

I use the Galor for STF's and have maxed out the ability to turn (thrusters?) in my last respec, and I must say, the Galor can keep pace with many Klingon ships, although I suggest ditching the weapons in favor of something else.

For STF's, Galors work very well. (I rarely blow up) in mine.

Jem'Hadar works great for STFS, as does the Galor. I mix the spirals with a DB mk12 disruptor (Borg) fore and 2 disruptor mk12 BA's (borg) aft, on the Galor.

Would the Jem'Hadar be good for an Engineering Captain, that is who I was planning on using it for?
