sometime to get something that we want in our player base star trek game we have to request some diffenent idea for different play styles. with all the overly enginenerring based cruisers and feel under powered taclically with the exception of the odysse class and the excelior class we need cruisers with more play style then too strong engineneering options.
there had been power increase creaping ship class power levels ever since the time of the excelior was released and the level 40 rear admiral to level 50 almost two years ago.
both the ambassador class and the excelior class are popular star fleet classes.
the excelior class just got a fleet ship a month or two ago. given that the ambassador is newer and build in a time of rise tentions the the abmassado be built with strong engingeneering and slight stronger scince and tactial then the excelior class but being about the same strenth as galaxy class.
i had the idea the the universal unlintied beam fire at will cruiser console be about the same strength as the boff fire at will. 3 minute cool down if the beam unlimited cruiser universal cruise is deactivated. the beam fire at will universal cruiser console would could come with the ambassador class starship but could be transferred to and cruiser.
any cruiser with unlimited beam fire at will console would still have slightly less fire power then a glass cannon escort but said cruiser would be able to attract attention
Just be ready for a disapointment. You know it wont have any teeth. And have a poor turn rate. It will be just another fat slow, under-powered Cruiser that will suck in STF's I just wish they would fix the Dreadnought and give it the same Boff layout and turn rate as the Breen cruiser. Now that would be an amazing cruiser.
