# 1 Ship Rankings
11-08-2012, 08:07 AM
i would be interested in knowing what do you think is the best 5 ships and what is the bottom 5 ships currently in STO? i would exclude tier 1 & 2 ships, but leave in tier 3 ships primarily becasue of the defiant.

Top 5:

1 Mobius
2 Armitage
3 MVAE
4 Chimera
5 (tie) Sci Oddy / Recluse

i get the feel that the Jem Hadar attack ship is very good, but i have no experience at all with it.


it will take me more time to come up with the bottom 5.

very eager to see what you think.

1) Excelsior - for a Tac it's simply a wonderful cruiser.
2) Kar'fi (KDF but you didn't specify faction) - a great ship for KDF Sci's - incredible fun.
3) Peghqu' - a little weak on the shields front but it's versatile, unique and the Battle Cloak makes it superior to the Chimera.
4) Chimera - again, versatile and unique - a lot of fun irrespective of profession.
5) K't'inga Retrofit/Fleet K't'inga - there's 'better' ships but nothing with as much old-school charm except...
6) Exeter with Constitution Refit skin - just because...

And as you may have gathered - I don't like Escorts

Bottom 5?

1) Odyssey in all its variants - too slow and lumbering for my taste.
2) Defiant Retrofit - I have one, I fly it occasionally, I hate it.
3) Sovereign - just - meh. I want to like it but it doesn't do anything particularly well.
4) Vor'cha Retrofit - similar complaint to the Sovvy - at first I liked it but irrespective of profession you end up with similar builds. Reliable but oh so vanilla.
5) Any of the Galaxy variants - just awful, awful ships.

I feel like if the best ships aren't lockbox ships, Cryptic has done something wrong. :p

1. Jem'Hadar Bug
2. D'Kora/Galor
3. Mobius/Wells
4. Recluse
5. Orb Weaver

Bottom 5, from best to worst:

1. Atrox Carrier
2. Assault Cruiser
3. Aquarius Destroyer
4. Galaxy-X/Galaxy-R
5. Star Cruiser

you know i left the d'kora and galor out of my top 5, but you sir are correct. those are darn good ships.

i like the way the star cruiser looks and i seriously regret getting it. there is nothing you can do to make it good.

i may have to make room for a new ship and the star cruiser is probably the one if so.

I've never actually flown a star cruiser but every time I've seen one in a PUG I've wanted to throw the person flying it out the window.

So. That's why.

Edit: Though I did see, and getting off topic here, a rainbow-boat Atrox who refused to use small-craft. That was the worst. But almost every star cruiser I've seen has been abysmal.
