i was previously banned on the old forums because i said that no cruiser should have the sensor anlyasis. i was proven right by multiple people that the SCIENCE version would in the long run do more damage then the TACTICAL versions.


i will never buy these ships.

@PWEBRANFLAKES: I would like there to be a way to report news article comments (with a click, rather than filing a ticket).
Some inappropriate words showing up today (words that would probably flag me here if I quoted). Clicking through nested menus and an irrelevant Knowledge Base category, to find a web form that isn't formatted for linking a user comment that has no post anchor is......not worth my time.
Requesting this feature apparently is.

I could never be a moderator. I'd enjoy the banhammer too much. Gotta settle for kickin' foo's from fleets.

Also while I am thinking about it, being a flagship, there shouldn't be 10,000 of them floating in space.... How can it be a representative flagship when they are everywhere. You can't be a significant representative without some uniqueness and exceptionalism. The exceptionalism goes away when they are made in mass.

The Enterprise is the flagship. The Odyssey class is the flagship class ship.

Calling the Ody the flagship is a little misleading.

That pretty much sums up my thoughts! I got the Ody's at the last sale but I will wait until the next to consider the Bortas. Hurry up and put out the Vesta if you want more of my money!

i hope, one day, the odyssey will get another outfit for the ugly deflector - only reason why i am not using this ship which could have been beautiful.

to the people blaming flakes:

dont you see that PWE is sitting behind him? They say "oh, we can still get more $$$ out of the STO players with these odyseey" and then bryan has to do a post. i guess he himself thinks that this is stupid but he wouldnt tell us because that would cost him his job. end of drama

If there were ships that are crying out for a 10th console slot fleet version, it is the flagships. The three consoles together eat way too much space for little good effect. These ships are fair in normal STFs, and are weak on elite, and in fleet actions. Actually, everything that is not an escort, a carrier, or carrier/escort needs help. Maybe less so on the KDF side, but definitely on the Federation side.

Sry Mate, bis this is completely non-sense. Federation has some pretty strong Cruiser that need for sure no help with anything.

I'll fly a Galor Class myself, 2x Beam Overload; High Yield 2 & 3 - against unshielded Enemies I deal more Damage than some Escorts. The Excelsior has a Lt.C. Tac that provides nearly the same fire power and a Galaxy X is a devastating Weapon, if you know what you are doing.

I've never flown an Oddy myself (except the ****ty free One) but if I take a look at their Stats, they are great Ships for Engs. The Universal Lt.C provides you a lot of firepower or Heals, this way you can easily swap between a Tank that threats the Enemies so the Escorts can take them out, or a "Heavy Fortress" that could nearly destroy every enemy itself. I'm an Eng. since I started playing six Months ago, maybe its my Experience, the Oddy look great imo. Or at least it Stats. I would just never fly one because this thing is ugly as hell.

Ummm. Galor is not Federation. Neither is D'Kora. They are the best cruisers in the game though.

Seriously, I like Excelsior, but it needs a lot more hull. The Galaxy X is ok as long as moving is not required. I never got much love from the lance. I enjoyed Excelsior up to the point where I started running STFs, and Galaxy X (Plus Odyssey & BortasQ) up until I started doing elite. I believe it takes special skill and and building to make these ships work. If they aren't from a lock box, cruisers are difficult to love on elite, and fleet content.
