I've seen it, and for a free ship it's quite the giveaway - superior in fact to the majority of Fleet ships IMO (coming from someone who just got a Fleet Excelsior).

That Cmdr. Tac and Lt. Cmdr Sci looks killer - light on Eng but this thing is a monster - second only to the Bug perhaps?

I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth but I wonder what kind of impact something like this is going to have on ship diversity in the game..?

Nevertheless, I'll be queuing up to get one for my two KDF characters - my Feddie's happy with his Fleet Excel/Steamrunner

Not as PuG friendly in terms of survivability as KDF Vet ship in terms of Boff layout options, though more Sci potential w/console layout.

Not as PuG friendly in terms of survivability as Fleet Torkaht regarding Boff layout options, but better turn rate.

Limited eng boffs makes aux2batt more difficult and can't use RSP w/it, but still an option. No Dem which is another reason for Tac I'd prefer Fleet Torkaht.

Lastly, no cloak for KDF initiative/playstyle.

I'll probably try it out w/my Sci, but I think it fits Fed cross repair/resists style better.

My Sci flies a Peghqu' at the moment and I love it but it's always felt a little squishy (I also run a Kar'fi, which, if I'm honest is way more fun than the Peghqu') - this ship looks like something she'll feel right at home in though so I'll definitely be getting her one...

Holy boloney batman !

This is the KDF ship we've been begging for from cryptic.

Don't need my fleetship now, and my starcruiser just got retired (24 hours after being pulled from the crate).

I don't know whether to thank cryptic or tell them how stupid they are for throwing away all c-store purchases they could've had. I'LL DEFINITELY BE GETTING ONE FOR EACH OF MY TOONS.

The Lt Tac makes the Breen ship less durable and flexible. I prefer to run at least 3 debuffs which would eat up the Lt Commander Sci slot, this leaves the Uni Ens and Lt Eng as the only options for hardening (w/slight exception of APD option).

So, I'd basically have APD, EPTS1, HE1 and aux2batt or APD EPTS1&2 and HE1. For a ship w/o a cloak KDF side, unless you're on a premade or give up debuffs you'll be squishy. Also, no options for ET or ST to use as counters w/o losing a debuff or in the case of ET an EPTS or limiting to 3 Sci Boffs w/potentionally sci team and HE using 2 of those slots.

Here's an example of what I do w/my Sci Vet Ship:

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...1&postcount=71

It could be flown defensively w/TSS3, ST2, HE1, PH1, epts1x2, APD, APO. Now you have an 8 gun boat that can't use dem, and can't debuff anything. Imo, a waste for either a Sci or Tac Captain given other options on KDF side, since it doesn't even have a cloak for initiative.

To be fair for those who are KDF and don't have Vet ship as an option on KDF side, it could be a nice alternative to a raider or the slow azz gorn ships.

If you're going to try and fly this thing like a 'scort (and it's not a "battlecruiser" or any kind of snoozer, for that matter) you'd better load up on the three best RCS consoles you can find, because you're gonna get batted around like a cat toy otherwise.

vids and guides and stuff

And Tachyokinetic Converter console. And Advanced Fleet Hyper-Impulse Engines [turn]x3 [spd].


Otherwise, I'll look forward staying on their six while they try to get away.
