EDITED: I had answered your questions, but Stark2k beat me to them. I removed my answers so as to not steal his thunder.

I won't be checking these threads , I've decided now , thanks to all the advice, on what to do.

So thank you Starfleet.

I'm looking towards one of those odyssey ships.

Take care everybody. Live long and prosper.

I'm also unsure as to what "EC" are, is it a fleet thing?
Look under Reward Packs on exchange, and Very Rare. Pretty much all the lockbox ships are there for a price. If you want a 'bargain' ship look for Mirror Universe under Rare quality. They are at same level as the basic Tier 5 ships w/ a couple minor differences. But will cost you only ~100k energy credits (instead of the 200k dilthium of the ones at the shipyard vendor)

When in Reward Pack
Set Rarity to Very Rare and try keywords to search: kora, carrier, orb, jem, galor, freighter, science
if you set rarity to Rare, just put in 'mirror' for the mirror universe ships
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

I'm probably going to wait for the Vesta ( see that one's specs first ) before deciding . From what I have read it could very well be the Vesta will be another 3-ship bundle as well.

Problem is STO is ruled by the escorts. Fleet actions are mainly for them.

Edit: I tried using the Armitage as a torpedo boat but found that, at least for my playing style, it just didn't turn fast enough to bring them to bear.
But man that's the thing I have a catian carrier and I want a fast ship but I like ships that cloak and the dread has a nice phaser lance and defiant has only seven wepons so I'm just stuck guys
