No it's not horrible, but it's not very good either. When compared with some of the other cruiser bridge officer layouts it just seems really weak. I really want to like the ship, but everytime I look at that bridge layout I think meh...pass.

And thats the great thing about having so many cruiser hulls to choose from, if one doesnt do it for you, you can try another. There are many times where the extra engie boffs come in handy for me, other times not.

I need only one, but one that is actually useable and versatile. I don't need a Super tank in this game, even escorts can tank well enough, i especiall don't want to see the Galaxy Class in that role. Cryptic should have taken one of their designs, like the original Dreadnought (you know the flying skyskraper) for that role.

What i want is finally to get a Galaxy Class which isn't the most boring ship in the game. Even if this ship is just a copy of another ship class, which only looks like a Galaxy Class.

If it where up to me, all other Galaxy Class variants could get erased and substituted with just one Galaxy Class in STO, a Regent clone that looks like a Galaxy Class.

I think a Mirror universe Galaxy and Galaxy X
Should be released

With a full tactical orientation to them they would
Be cannon to that universe

No cloak
No cannons because there not cannon
Same movement and speed
Same crummy turn rate
Keep Spinal Lance

Beefed up phaser arrays at average Dps
of a avg escort "bound to ship"

Gal X
Consoles.........Boffs
5 Eng............:Cmdr Tac
3 Tac..............LT Cmdr Eng
2 sci...............LT Cmdr. Sci
.......................LT. Tac

The Galaxy should have
Uni commander giving the play a choice where
To put his/her commander better fitting the role
As a multi purpose ship

Their slow can't cloak turns slow accelerates slow
But do offer a high Dps cruiser for those who want one

As a Mirror ship it should be available to both factions

Many ships I'n the game are already more powerful
Than this already

Saucer sep isn't something the Mirror universe
Would consider either

It's cost should reflect it's power Sold as a 2 pack
5000 zen perhaps

Cool thing for cryptic there already made
Minor skin color changes
Minor programming time

No need for special consoles
I think it would sell well and not be overpowered
Or threaten escorts but would fill a Nich missing
I'n cruisers
Jellico....Engineer ground.....Da'val Romulan space Sci
Saphire.. Science ground......Ko'el Romulan space Tac
Leva........Tactical ground.....Koj Romulan space Eng

JJ-Verse will never be Canon or considered Lore...It will always be JJ-Verse

Your posts always make me lauugh. Your last chance at your super galaxy was most likely the fleet version. I don't think cryptic will be updating the galaxy class anytime soon You've basically got two choices. Use the garbage galaxy, or use the regent since its exactly what you want...other then the skin of course.

That sort of what I have been hinting at. His issue is he can't get past captaining any other ship skin than a Galaxy class. I can appreciate and respect his desire, but desire does not necessitate reality.

To me its sort of similar to someone wanting to drive an Akira (and variants) because it was their favorite and complaining that isn't tanky enough because it in the show it was supposed to be a workhorse cruiser and a replacement for the Excelsior class. Or that the Defiant is too much of a "glass canon" because it was tougher in DS9.

I love the look of the Sovy' and would love to drive the Regent (in Sovy' skin) more, but the versatility of the Excel' keeps pulling me back in. Luckily I love the look of the Excel as well. Yreo' doesn't like the looks of the other cruisers and doesn't want to be seeing his space avatar looking bad. I can understand that, but its simple economics; drive the ship that you like the looks of the most, or drive the ship that is the most effective for your playstyle, sometimes both ships are not the same and you end up choosing the ship with the worse appearance.

Or do a little of both. Prometheus isn't my favorite ship, but it's what you'll find me running eSTF in. I also have a Chimera loaded with Adv. Fleet weapons for doing non-Borg stuff. I have a Venture-X too. I love it, it looks really cool. Unfortunately, I haven't found a build that I'd use for running really challenging content. BUT... for putting around the galaxy running dailies and screwing around, I have a lot of fun in it.

Personally, I love the Gal-X. The BOFF layout could use a tweak or two though, maybe more like the Sovvy. It's my understanding that adding the phaser lance removed the ship's abilty to separate the saucer section because it is physically mounted to both the saucer and engineering hull. In a novel I read some time ago, the lance is referred to as a "Type U Planetary Defense Cannon" which was raided by Admiral Riker from the parts stockpile of a starbase that was never built.

It is a challenging ship to get the most out of, especially for my Sci VA. Mine is loaded with the quad cannon, one dhc, and two singles, with turrets out back. Use Evasive to extend out of combat range, cloak, come about, close to point blank range, hit crf, dem, weapons battery, decloak, drain shields, fire all the cannons and turrets, then lance. Makes most targets very squishy.

I do think that since the Gal-X is supposed to be a very heavily modified boat, it SHOULD have a better turn rate than the standard Gal or Gal-R. Not Excelsior good, but at least better than it is.

So whats your point?
Do you just randomly try to offend people or did you just start with it?

Lol, that's why i want a Regent with a galaxy class Skin, is that so hard to comprehend?

It wouldn't unbalance anything, the "garbage" galaxy Class would still be in game, so you or anyone else are free to keep flying it as long as you want.

The point is that i don't want to fly a ship which looks either ugly (sovereign Style or most escorts) or uses cannons (escorts/ Akira).
I find cannons i STO are just annoying, i want to fly a big spaceship, without having to dogfight. If i wanted to do this i would play another game.

I have several other characters captaining other ships than a Galaxy Class.
Other characters fly a Mirror Assault Cruiser (just for the looks), Galor, D'Kora, Orb Weaver, Nebula, even a Regent. All those ships fit to my playstyle more or less, i don't like the looks of any of those ships, i somethimes even hate how they look.


What i want is to get finally ONE single ship that looks acceptable AND fits halfway to my playstyle at the same time.

I doubt they will do much more with the galaxy now , a shame , but the supposedly upcoming dreadnought update is probably only thing that'll be done to a ( derivative ) of it
