For me personally I drive the Fleet Tor'kaht for PvE. I enjoy cruisers, and I like beams more than cannons. I'm running the Jem'hadar space set on it now with 7 Polaron breams, and a KCB. It pulls 9k dps consistently with my current setup. I'm debating on whether to convert it to romulan plasma, or wait to see what these tholian rep weapons can do.
A few weeks ago, I would have said my Guramba on my Tac for its satisfying disruptor-o'-doom (as far as my KDF toons go), but recently I've been getting deeper into my Negh'Var on my engie. The Boff layout can have some issues for sure, but I've learned to love it as a utility ship than can do decent DPS. Aesthetically, it's imposing--full Negh'Var loadout with Qu'Duj bridge so it looks more like a proper flagship. Plus, the yellow hum of KHG set makes it look downright mean. It's also versatile--I can run beam or cannons on it, though mostly I've been running beams.
If I want to "shut up and win," the Kamarag is a superior ship to the Negh'Var because of Boff layout. But that won't stop me from having fun in such a behemoth.
I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to ships, I find a lot of them fun to fly for various reasons (which is why my toons are overflowing with ships, particularly my Feds).
The Vo'Quv was my first endgame KDF ship. A real brick, but once once I got the right loadout and got the hang of micromanaging my pets it started to feel like wading into the fray in a battlestar.
Then came the Varanus. Back before the Borg set split I was pretty much an unstoppable stone wall in this thing (illustrating why the set got changed). Afterward it's cooled on me a bit, but my interest was rekindled after trying it out on my Gorn Tac with the Jem'Hadar set and Dominion Polarons.
I love the mirror Qin on my engy, it was my first real "escort" type ship, and it tears stuff up real good. Recently though I started running that character with a full cannon-boat Kamarag, and I fell in love, it's nearly everything I wanted from the Qin, but it can tank.
Lastly, the B'rel. My weapons are split evenly between Breen Transphasics (rapid reload and cluster) and distrupors, and it's proved a really fun hit-and-run ship with a good dose of cloaked support vessel thrown in.
Honestly there's only two ships I don't really have a ball in, and those are the original Odyssey and Bortas. Bulky, slow, and rather lacking in "oomph", especially compared to their refits or even free RA ships like the Vor'cha and Sovereign.
Have you flown the Fl'orcha? Have you? HAVE you? HAVE YOU??
Once you do, you'll see why I love that ship The slides you can pull with this ship while still having your cannons bearing on target is just B....E....A...U...tiful
I also like my Sci's Voquv.. Moves like a pig but that one is a BEAST I tell you! So I guess that makes it a super-swine! I mainly use it in STFs for crowd control with purple Orion interceptors and marauders. The number of times Donatra is stuck cos she cant move to follow the aggro'd target is hilarious!
