best role is a science escort ? , a science ship but read the store description =

Quote:
The Multi-Vector Advanced Escort is the ultimate tactical design. The ship comes equipped with a Multi-Vector Assault Module, which enables the ship to separate into Alpha, Beta and Gamma sections, each with its own capabilities

does not sound like a science ship to me

Just wondering since you guys repost old news from month to month like the dilithium mining could another blog you post every month be the guide to STFs this would be a great help for players who use "pugs."

It is the only escort with a LtC science slot, and there's where you get to use nifty science magick.

The AE is a good, but really you are starved for slots when it comes to PVP, so I can't think of where am I going to stick the MVAE console in. But if you do, you're the only Fed escort able to match the Attack Bug turn for turn. Tanking its bite is a whole other ball game, however...

I'm not considering boxships. They can do whatever they IWIN want.

It is not a Science Escort, it is a "Science Heavy" Escort, meaning 3 science consoles and a Lt.Cmr. Science BOFF. The Patrol Escort for example favors Engineering and the Tactical Escort Retrofit is a pure tactical escort.

Meh, its a nice ship and I even have the Fleet version. If you guys are going to advertise your old crap, you could at the very least put some time into fixing its many bugs:

Still the ship parts do not match the skin you are using.

You still stop dead when activating MVAM and should be updated to use the Odyssey tech.

The pets are mostly useless because you cannot control them and they end up going on a suicide mission and like to fly right by exploding ships!

The AI is hopeless, see above....

Oh yes. This is so annoying. The "ship-is-about-to-expode-let's-fly-closer"- mode is not deactivatable.

I wonder what's the point of featuring a ship if you do not give us the slightest discount? "Oh I didn't buy it so far. But now that it's featured I must have it?"

i am so oldschool....

back in the day i got mine for 500 EMBLEMS !!!

the new Freepers won't even know that you once could get this ship for 100% FREE

...yepp!

and then later, just before F2P, i bought it anyway to have it account wide before the price bump and i'm using it on a SCI char now instead of a TAC who since then got a nice Tier 5 Armitag ahem AKIRA Class.

MVAM + Holo fleet from Science Captain Powers results in some nice pet spam, now if i only could get the power from that Temporal Ship with the mirror universe duplicates slotted on my MVAM that'd be too epic...


anyway,
Geko told us (a long long time ago, back when the Odyssey was just out) that they were working with new Tech from the Odyssey to make the parts that fly back to you your own Ships (instead of this default animation, with wrong ship parts), and that the Ship would not have to STOP midflight to go into MVAM mode... (on the show they did that at WARP!!! so why do we need to stop even at impulse?).

I think i remember that i've read later that they ran into some sort of code problem and then no word popped up about it ever again.
What did ever happen to that? Any chance this will still happen?

PS: how about a new 2409 skin for the Ship?

I will of course get the Fleet Variant for one module (already bought for EC on the exchange) but we just made Tier 4, Tier 5 will take a long time.



@Brandon: good job bringing player attention back to old bugs, now get em fixed ;P

i have this ship and i like it a lot but i kinda love the normal rear admiral one better and i was hoping that you can make the the LT Commander a universal slot instead to give ppl the choice on wether they want an engi,tac or sci. the second is when separating adding your name to all vector ships pets instead of the one your using cause its kinda make no sense in pvp when your opponent know exactly witch ship your in.
