I would not rely on the shows for canon when it comes to the mirror universe. in one episode two klingon ships decloak, but in a later one Quark has to steal one from the prime universe.

Will the Tholian Carrier be able to equip dual cannons?

Why on earth would you put dual cannons on a carrier with no turn rate? That sounds completely pointless....

One can argue about the usefulness in PvP (although I have used it with success there on the Atrox recently), but in PvE, it is a very sensible option to choose for shooting at Borg cubes or other big and slow opponents. Especially when you can have a Tactical Commander.

Of course, the question is: Is that even possible with the Tholian Carrier.

My only gripe with the Vorcha is nothing is done to make it readily apparent that it's an Alliance ship. It would've been a nice nod to the Cardassians if the Vorcha had come with/been able to equip Spiral Wave distruptors like the Galor.

^^^^THIS. Some Cardassian or Bajoran slant to the ship would be great.

I was talking about the sci ship, not the carrier.

Having at least one significant drawback like this helps to keep it from being the "one ship to rule them all" (till the next one)--and it needs it, given how both the Orb Weaver and the carrier have higher shield modifiers than the comparable Fed/KDF ships. Also, the fact that the Orb Weaver has a slightly slower turn rate than most RA/VA Science ships (9 vs 10-11) also helps to keep it from going quite so far out of balance.
That's likely true. My issue isn't the lack of tac powers, it's the fact that to get a second ensign engineering power (and isn't the DSSV), which is what it'd take to get me back in a sci ship, I have to take a second Lt Com Engineering.

I'll keep waiting.

An advice: Go watch some Star Trek. There are all kinds of occasions where non-Starfleet ships are commanded and operated by Starfleet officers.

Yes, usually not for long, but 2409 is a desperate time.

How so? We outnumber the Klingons 5 to 1.

Anyhow, with the mirror universe ships just being skinswaps, I've officially lost interest in the whole affair.
