The Assault Cruiser is by far my favorite looking ship. I play it sometimes even though it sucks. Please revamp the Assault Cruiser, maybe give it the same officer stations as the Ugly slow Odyssey cruiser without the extra separation stuff. Don't screw up its maneuverability either. Leave it as is with maybe better hull and shields, more Officer stations and a universal station and put it up there with the big boys. I would love to fly in that ship all the time! It is the meanest looking ship the Feds have! Can't believe you have just let it sit as a poor excuse for a cruiser. Put it in the new fleet ships or something or even give us a quest to get the better ship (like you should be doing with the lockbox ships instead of trying to **** anyone that wants one).

What would be the point if its just a copy of the Odyssey minus some special consoles? All that would do is piss off people who already purchased the Odyssey.

I purchased all 3 Odysseys and it would still have its perks. It still has the consoles and extra goodies it has now. I don't want them to add anything else to the Sovereign except make it end game worthy. Give it the extra Officer stations so it can be played end game. It damn sure wouldn't piss me off. I'd buy the sov in a heartbeat even if they just put it for sale in the store with the updates. Even better if they make it a quest to upgrade your current Sov.

sovy now is T5...endgame, has as many BOFF powers as the oddy, only 1 console less, but so do all other t5 ships right now.

Oh damn sweet! They keep bringing back several ships but had never done anything with the Sov. Whoever designed that ship and the mod pack to go on it spent allot of time making it look that good just to let it go to waist. That is what I couldn't understand. I mean they brought the Galaxy class back what? 5 or 6 times and I hate that ship. Couldn't understand why they didn't bring the Sov out 1 time to make it end game worth. Thanks for the Info!

If it aint C-Store, It aint getting attention...

Not my opinion, but a dev statement (simplified by me)... Look through one of the last episodes of STOked for confirmation.
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.
-NEVER Forget the Screwups and ignorance made towards the people who supported the game through 2011
Don't look silly, don't call it "Zen-Store" - Don't waste devs time, Post proper bug-reports - I don't like Gekos

@ baudl, Did you miss the big bold red text at the top of that page you linked stating this content has since been removed from the game?

The Fleet Sovereign was pulled, I don't know why but I certainly didn't want to fly it.

@ armax, The Sovereign is one of the best Cruisers in this game I don't see why it needs any changes, does it need a Fleet Version? Well yes I think it does. But the current base model is on par with any other T5 ship in the game. The thing is it's a Cruiser not an Escort and should be treated as such.

I think half the reason we currently have the Fleet Heavy Cruiser was so they could make a more tac focused Fleet Assault, honestly I think they did it backwards. The Fleet Assault should just be like the Fleet Star Cruiser, the same ship you know and love with just a bit more everything. The Fleet Heavy Cruiser should be more Tac Orientated with a higher turn and less hull.

With the Odyssey filling the role as the adaptable Universal Cruiser.
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.

So back to the orginal topic. They need to come out with a new Sov. Can't believe they pulled the damn thing. That will always be my favorite looking ship. Right now it is useless though.

Yes the Sov is on par with other T5s but unless you are flying an escort u better not step in an Elite STF or Fleet Action for that matter in a T5. Timers have killed T5 cruisers and Sci vessels. I want the Sov revamped so I can play it End Game. I love that ship!

I fly a Sovereign built to tank, I have not failed an Elite STF optional in months. Bringing it home with time to spare. The trick is not to join a random PUG but to take four other people who know how to play and won't do stupid things.
