You'll need to either join or create a fleet.

Personally, I'm hoping we see the MVAE BOFF layout, just with more hull, shields and the +1 turn rate. And an extra TAC console (:

Not seeing much point in the T5 Sabre tbh. The uprated "patrol escort" is better in literally every way. Its a shame, as I was hoping to be flying an Andorian style Ushaan for my VA, since they have delayed the Kumari retrofit again. Hope those aren't the final stats, at least for this class.

Why not give it an extra degree in turn rate, and make the Lt Sci a Lt Cmdr (maybe even reducing the Lt Cmdr Tac to Lt to compensate)? That would give it a boost whilst still being fairly realistic with canon and giving it a niche against (although not surpassing) the patrol escort. That and maybe shift that extra Eng console to either Tac or Sci and it would be onto a winner, although the durability doesn't hurt.

If you look at the shipyard tiers, they list rewards given once you reach each one; while the shipyard doesn't list either the fleet heavy escort cruiser or the advanced escort, they are listed in the actual tier rewards...as well as an unlisted Fed ship and destroyers.

But yeah, those Saber stats need a big change, and I'm wondering how the Adv Escort Fleet Refit will be changed. Giving a universal ensign to the Patrol makes the Advcort's science ensign redundant. Maybe they'll give the Advcort identical stats to the MVAE, just have it minus the console?

Well, the Fleet Ships have been on Holodeck for a while, and I've noticed something.

There is no Fleet Assault Cruiser. Remember that from the stats posted earlier in this thread? Commander Engineering, Ensign Engineering, Lieutenant Commander Tactical, Lieutenant Tactical, and Lieutenant Universal BOff slots?

Why did Cryptic decide to pull such an epic ship from the update? I'm sure that they'd have people buying Fleet Ship Modules left and right to get the things.

and the best thing is, they removed the skins from C-store because you get it with the fleet version

this also applies to the advanced escort

We have yet to hear why they pulled the Fleet AC, no explanation given and nobody wants to ask the devs directly that interview them.

Well the cynic in my says the Assault was pulled to make it a +1 for outright sale before they fleet that version.

Why charge 2000 Zen for 4 FSM, when you can charge 2500 Zen for the ship and 500 a character for 1 FSM.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

My only hope in the matter is that they will realize that a base 7 turn rate and beam arrays doesn't really put the assault in "assault cruiser", at least with the way this game is designed, and that the AC will get some serious love when it hits the Cstore.
