# 1 One Ship to rule them all.
10-29-2012, 06:58 PM
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bing them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

That is from The Lord of The Rings, and it is saying all the rings and who they belong to. Now, I went and counted up all the C-Store ships that were Vice Admiral/Lieutenant Genral rank ships, and the two 1000-day vet reward ships. I counted the carriers as science ships (they do lean on science with the Cm. science boff station), the 1000-day ships as escorts, and all the Odyssey/Bortasqu' varients are counted as seperate (because they are actually different ships). The ships were the Ody. Tac., Ody. Sci., Ody. Op., Gal-X, Galaxy-R, Regent, Bort. War., Bort. Com., Bort (can't remember the name of the third one), Intrepid-R, Atrox, Kar'fi, Defiant-R, Armitage, MVAE, B'rel, Siege Destroyer (pretty sure that's what it's called), Chimera, and the KDF equivalent. And here is the LOTR poem, STO adapted:

Three Ships for the Science-captains under the stars,
Seven for the Tactical-warlords in their bridges of power,
Nine for Engineering masters doomed to be destroyed,
One for the Dark Admiral on his dark chair
In the Land of Holodeck where the Shadows lie.
One Ship to rule them all, One Ship to find them,
One Ship to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Holodeck where the shadows lie.

The next ship we know that's going to come out is the Vesta. Does everything, completely overpowered, in other words,

One Ship to rule them all.

Make of this what you will...

I wasn't sure where to put it. If the mods want to move it, they can put wherever they want.

It better be one ship to rule them all if they want season seven to be a blast off sales leader.

Everyone in the game should buy one.

There are two sides to that coin. 1) There will be a slurry of the same ship everywhere. 2) They will all be different because of the diversity the Vesta's capable of.

But still, just way too overpowered.

Is the Vesta really gonna be that OP though? You'll have a ship that can mount 7 weapons, pack cannons, and has a single hangar. Just like the Armitage already does. Only its got a third less turn rate and a heavy emphasis on sci powers at the cost of tac powers, I'm guessing 3 tac consoles, but in exchange it gets subsystem targeting and sensor analysis, which of course so many existing sci ships use to kick everyone's butt and....no waitaminute, that don't seem to do much beyond annoyance. Plus there's no fleet version and I haven't heard any mention of a special toy console either.

So a variant of the Armitage with reduced offense and turning abilities and more powers-that-have-been-nerfed in exchange. So how exactly is this going to be so broken?
