Nebula is one of the most lovely starships. Well it used to be. It had somewhat interesting console in the past, that boosted several sensor related skills. After the skill revamp, it was huge nerf on the utility of this console. So I felt really bad about it, and didn't want to fly it for weeks.

Now the fleet nebula. Requires T4 shipyard and get's another engineering console + hps/shields. I mean, that's a little sad. The obessey sci cruiser already completely overshadows the ship with it's customization options at comparable Zen cost.

What should they do to make it more appealing and useful ?

eh its boff setup is like the oddys only in reverse (higher level sci than engi) but it does have a higher turn rate. personaly I like the ship since I can have 2 lt tacs and still keep some good heals where as the oddy can get the extra high level tac but looses some healing. I do however have both.
As for making it better maybe actualy using the interchangeable mission pod for somthing?

I personally would love one of these things: Not basically all of them at once.

1.

Additional forward weapon slot. It's really big ship with slow turn rate

2.

dropping the en. science and upping the universal slot to lt.cmd
dropping the extra eng console and giving it tac one

3.

Letting it equip any Pay2Win consoles without the usual restrictions (maybe with the exception of quads). Something to mimic the universal mission pod of the ship. But in a special hangar like slot, so it does not waste console slots.

3: It can. It's tachyon grid console is unique to it's line, but it can use the Thunderchild console, among others.

Yeah, I think it's the tier 5 consoles that he wanted it to be allowed access to, like the Armitage mega-torpedo-spam, which admittedly, would work excellently with that mission pod. Although, I can't see much but the torpedo spam working for it.

Maybe something like having it as a universal console slot, and the pod changes depending on wether we equip a science, tactical or engineering console there.

I'd dearly love to be able to mount the spam torpedo thing on the Nebula though.

Guilty as charged but the photon torpedo console would be really a boon (and even lorewise) to this ship.

You can't? If you can't put the torp spray console on Nebula what can you put it on(besides armitage that is)?

Nothing. You can only put it on the Armitage, and maybe the T3 Heavy Escort. T5 ship consoles are generally linked to one or two specific ships (MVAM consoles for MVAM and Adv. Escort, Cloaking for Dreadnought and Defiant).

That said, IMO it'd be perfectly reasonable to add the Nebula to the list of ships able to use it.

The console from the Thunderchild works though and provides a sweet DPS boost when it is up.
