And yes, it is the top of the heap by a fair amount in my opinion.

Yeah the jem ship is still the best escort in the game at the moment.

And will be for the foreseeable future.

They actually buffed the Jem'Hadar to be better than the Fleet ships. Actually, all of the lockbox ships got a buff.

That said, there are, I believe, two Fleet ships with 5 tactical consoles. The Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit and Fleet Advanced Escort.

Both ships lose out on turn rate compared to the Jem'Hadar ship. They lose out to the Jem'Hadar in terms of hull and shield modifier as well.

While advantages go to the Jem'Hadar ship, it's not by much (except for the turn rate). In either of those two ships, they still have the chance to take the Jem'Hadar out. It all really comes down to the skill level of the pilot.

You've just hit the nail on the head!

In this game people think if they spend hundreds of dollars on lockbox ships and Fleet weapons it will make that said ship or that said setup the best in the game...not the way it goes

80% of winners in the game win because of their skill as a pilot and not which ship they fly or how much real life money they've hauled into their starship

All true. I have been lucky enough to help take down a few bugs. It requires teamwork and a bit of luck. In my Steamrunner with multiple APO running for high up-times I can sometimes hang with a bug....but put an elite pilot in one? Forget it.

Until there are BO changes on the Fleet Defiant it will be behind the Jem'haddar ship which is utter badass for a Beam overload configuration. Defiant isnt far behind but i am going to have to readd torps if i'm going to continue to use it. I cant tolerate having a BO slot with a power i never use.

And for the record i dumped no RL cash into anything but a reset and possibly expanded bridge officer slots once upon a time.

I also agree the attack ship is a very good escort but i still love the Defiant and as said Fleet Defiant gets 5 tac console allowing for some crazy offence on the battlefield and if you already have a Defiant R it is much cheaper than the attack ship just get a module from exchange for 5Million EC and BAM one of the best escorts DPS wise. all 3 are reliable ships but i am going to stick by the Defiant as the best since she is more geared to the tac side than the advanced escort and much cheaper than a attack ship (would send it to a different char than my Defiant char)

The STO JH bug ship doesn't even come close to accurately portraying the performance specs of the TV show version. This is P2W at its finest
