Having a rounder drive section is not a bad thing; the connie, excelsior, ambassador even later looking at voyager and now the Oddy. The Chimera really can't tell what it's meant to be. It's trying to marry the purpose of an escort with the style of a fat cruiser, it just does not work.

On the topic of nacelles there are the defiant and akira class to think about though the defiant had design reasons for being like that and pulled it off. The akira class at least follows the convetion of having the nacelles below the drive section.

I'm just glad this didn't turn out to be the winning entry for the Enterprise F!!

Epic fail on Bill's part I'd say - the Excelsior is a great looking ship (far better than either of these inbred mutants I might add).

Hmm anytone think I (my main fed tac) should swap the 2 year Odyssey for the 1000 day ship? I've been so busy IRL that I can't recall the 2 year ship's stats and if this would be an improvement or not.

I also have a fed sci using recon, and a kdf eng using BoP.

I EARNED 1000 days...I didn't BUY it! New LTS=Death to Vet.System: 10/10/12 Never Forget
Something should be done for those who cared enough to have a 1000+ day sub.

The new ship is a lot of fun. It has a lot of the strengths of both the Escort and Cruiser and few of the weaknesses. I love the new animation as well. Thanks so much for this ship! Despite all the controversy surrounding the recent Lifetime perk thing, it was a fitting reward for 1,000 days of service.

The only thing is that the Reman shield looks terrible on it. That must have slipped through the cracks in the design process

So can Branflakes (or a dev') explain the power bonus situation with these ships? I am still confused to what the deal is

I am happy with the Chimera. Yeah she isn't the nicest ship to look at, but she is superior to many escorts out there even with only 9 console slots.
She beats my Mobius into the ground for boff seating, and as good as an extra console slot is, if its not in the tac slot on an escort, who cares?

Just my opinion though, I love the ship...

Great ship Cryptic, thanks!
And the nerd rage the new LTS benefits are causing makes me even happier
