I just came back to the game after a few years and bought one with lobi, I hadn't even fully got the grips with all the new changes in the game yet and then I recently learnt about T6 and Delta Rising.

I know that it says you can upgrade the Tholian Recluse Carrier, among others, for free (or some not?), people are calling these T5-U ships, right?

Why are they not just T6 ships? if T6 are better, eg; more bridge officers / weapons / console / device slots / better turn rates / hull / shield modifier / etc etc then won't you really be playing with a huge handicap and just making elite missions / stf's harder for yourself?

Edit: I also bought a few other lobi items actually, the hirogen armour (which looks badass by the way, look at this **** it looks like mass effect), some universal consoles, the ground weapons, are those going to scale up their stats too?

Then there are things like, I bought an Elite Tholian Mesh Weaver from my fleet which cost a whopping 100k fleet credits and 45k dilithium - I seriously hope THAT will get upgraded...

First of all it wont be obsolete. Itwill be asclose to any t6like all other fleett5u ships. It wll get more hull once you rank it up an additional console and 4 passives yoou can unlock.
And hangar items as far as we know level with your captain so no worry. Universal consoles will stay as usefull as they are now.

So no worry.
Cruisers ftw!

Wow thanks.

I don't suppose you happen to know what type of additional console slot the recluse gets? Is it on Tribble yet?

The Recluse will remain one of the best, and most versatile, ships in the game. You won't be able to play with the Intel boffs in space, and that's about it.

You're right about that. I don't have entirely top-end gear, but it's very good, and I roll full tetryon weapons so I just turn shields to butter in a single volley combined with elite Meash Weavers. Also coming in first every time I do elite crystalline entity against loads of escorts tells me I must be doing something right.

Coming in first in CCE doesn't mean you did the most damage. You can do way less damage but through a combination of just healing your teammates and using sci skills, be listed as "first" on the prize board.

Just FYI. To the topic at hand, I think the recluse will remain quite useful, even though I don't fly one myself. The stats and the hangar pets and the boff seating mean it will remain useful, especially if you upgrade it (for free).

If you really want to keep it uber in the expansion to come, you might consider getting an orb weaver, and putting the tholian web console on your recluse. That's a pretty good combination, there.

you are running a tet build? can you post it? only reason I'm running disruptors is I'm getting decent bumps with the counter command set.
