grind for your fleeties! (no, seriously-it's worth the time.) I'd recommend waiting on the shields and getting the "Elite" shield instead with the res though...wonderful things.
Well my fleet is only tier 2 and we don't have the advanced shields so I assume they are tier 3 and with Mk XII very rare shields I am getting wasted in ESTF's. I would get the Honour Guard shield but I have to go through the STF's to get it, which doesn't make sense as you have to grind the STF's to get the gear to do the STF's.

I've been playing my KDF toon a lot recently and I realized that I really like pretty much ALL of the KDF T4-5 ships, including, in order from least favorite to most: Negh'var, mirror qin, mirror vor'cha, Hoh'sus BoP, Guramba Siege Destroyer, Fleet Tor'Kaht, and most of all, the Kar'fi Carrier.
I really like the KDF battlecruisers and carriers because in many cases, they have the same or greater maneuverability and hull than their federation counterparts with a greater damage potential due to their use of DC/DHCs.
The Kar'fi is by far my favorite ship right now because it flies like a battlecruiser, has the BOff slots of a Sci ship, and amazing carrier pets in the Fer'jai frigates (I have adv. looking forward to fleet elite).
Light Speed! - No, light speed is too slow. We need LUDICROUS SPEED!

I'm actually really fond of my Varanus support ship. Sure, her stats are a little sketchy next to Federation science vessels, but being able to lay down space hidey-holes that launch band-aid drones have saved my hide more often than I can count.
The fact that it's also a Gorn ship (and quite attractive-looking one at that) certainly helps!
Currently rocking the Fleet K'Tinga, old-school. This is a really great, highly underrated ship. It's a good compromise between bruising toughness and maneuverability. You don't get many tactical slots, but with the changes to Emergency Power, I find this ship is still a consistent performer in STFs. I'm still using beam arrays in lieu of cannon, since this ship really doesn't boast enough tactical stations to support a proper cannon build. No, it doesn't hold a candle to an escort in terms of burst damage or agility, but it definitely has staying power, and with Aux2Damp, I'm able to turn pretty well, in spite of being a rocket on roller-skates.
Up Until recently I was flying the Hegh'ta BoP which I always have since back before the F2P days. It hits hard , is fast nimble and strikes fear into the feds.
I have recently swapped to the Peghqu' though as it has better hull and shields as well as an extra rear weapon slot and BO station while retaining the battlecloak. Its great even if its not as maneuverable as my Hegh'ta. Plus the tactical mode is great in a pinch for laying down some quick pain in STFs and such.

Bug, Bulbous and ugly, much like its' namesake. Tanks like a beast and can bring the pain with 1 hangar and 8 weapon slots. Also just nice to fly a ship not so common.
I'm sure I saw you flying around near Ganalda the other day, I remember laughing at your ship name.
