Just so long as your console layout, hull, weapons positioning and shields are ALSO BoP.

(Of course, do that, and the screams of "Screwjob" from Fedside will be audible on the MOON.) Oh, and delete those innate powers too-the subsystem targeting (maybe keep 1 or at most 2 individual ones, since we're not proliferating Battlecloak...)


Yah, I don't think so.

im frankly shocked they seemingly put so much effort into something they are going to give away for free to people who have been here from the beginning, old timers hasn't exactly been their focus since F2P. whats the incentive? what the catch? are the consoles for its transformations in the lobi store? ii guess m just to jaded to think im about to get something truly premium for free here soon.

Remember that a 1000 day ship might make a few absent lifers come back just to try it, possibly staying for some while again. Which is good both from a direct ROI perspective and from a "they might get others back to play, too".

Not that STO would need that, but it really won't hurt either.

Maybe a free Oddyssey / c-store Oddyssey deal? You get a teaser for free, but you have to pay for the really cool stuff?

i ll place a bet, that something is going to be 100% OP, and as soon as it hits holodeck, a Dev is coming in here admitting it in under 24h.

On the bright side, this is actually progress.

lol

It's like a 12-step program for devs!

Step one: Admit you have a problem!


Quote:
1. We admitted we were powerless over abilities?that our game had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity/balance.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of dStahl as we understood Him.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of the ships and abilities.
5. Admitted to the players, to ourselves, and to another dev being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. Were entirely ready to have Borticus remove all these defects of character traits.
7. Humbly asked dStahl to remove our spam.
8. Made a list of all players we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9. Made direct amends to such players wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with the playerbase as we understood It, praying only for knowledge of the players will for us and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to devs, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

what we have here is another kirk dream ship for sure. its got the same station setup as the odyssey, only it has a tactical commander. how much you wanna bet the vesta is going to have this setup, only with a commander science station?

couple of negatives, only 9 consoles plus a special console that shifts it from defensive to offensive mode, and 14 turn rate is well below quite a few other escorts. also they have special phaser or disrupter weapons, so you would be silly to use any other weapon type on these ships if you want your tactical consoles effecting both your weapons and the special. i know i'll have to grind all new sets of weapons.

this destroyers are basically klingon battle cruiser with the knob turned up past the fleet ktinga and vorchas's 11, all the way up to 15. think of them this way, they arent really escorts. id be real interested to see its inertia score. the kdf version is basically a stat clone, except...

well, now that sure does look like fun, being able to battle cloak it up! i think every cloak in game should be a battle cloak, so i approve!

that raptor shield mod has got to go though...
