I recently bought the Excelcior refit becuase I absolutely love the ship. However, I used to fly an Odyssey and find that even with the same mods my Excelcior has about half the shields that the odyssey had.

Please the slots are almost the same, the level almost identical yet the refit is MUCH, MUCH weaker than the other 50 equivalents. I am not asking for a buff to the ship per se, but rather a reduction in the hit that it takes when equipping high level devices (Such as a Mk XII shield array).

There is no reason for such a huge debuff to be attributed to a ship that I paid 2000 zen for just to find it is arbitrarily assinged a -50% to all modules (or whatever). Please reconsider this debuff to ships that I bought in good faith from the zen store.

Thank you.

It would be nice to have such a buff but the reason behind it iis that it is an RA ship not a VA however I find it outperforms my oddy (running the same build) in every way.

I would like a VA fleet version with an extra sci or tac console and the standard fleet boosts, maybe even the universal ensign to go with it

I just bought it too, was pumped when I found out the extra power didn't take up a console slot, but now that means I could have just waited for the fleet version. When it gets a fleet version it will compete with the odyssey.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.

It was buffed, people abused it and they nerfed it again. Read the initial patch notes for season 6, it was a superior to the Oddy. I was flying the Excelsior, they just need to release a Fleet version of the ship.

Actually it was a bug when season 6 hit. It was accidently buffed. They nerfed it because it was a bug, not because of some abuse.

First the Galaxy VA most be buffed (realy buffed not the joke of fleet version) is more iconic and most powerfull than the excelcior but not in this game never understend why

I consider the Cardassian Galor to be the fleet version of the Excelsior.

The normal Galaxy is more powerful than the normal Excelsior.

If things stay as they are now it will never get a fleet version because of the bonus transwarp destinations.

If they are so worried about people getting a free power, what I would wish they would do is develope some system to where you can only buy these special ships fleet versions if you actually own the c-store versions.

I would love to see a fleet gal-x (with more tac mmph) and a guramba fleet version but as of right now because they have a console independent power that isn't going to happen.
