# 1 Dreadnought Buff...
12-30-2012, 12:04 PM
Can we possibly get a buff to the Dreadnought-cruiser (Galaxy X)? The thing has been a "novelty item" for wayyy to long now. All other cruisers in its tier have 10 consoles, while the Dreadnought is stuck with 9. Any chance we can get a 10th console slot? or at least a lieuteant-commander tactical boff slot? anything?

Or at least a fleet version?

I'd really like to see the Dreadnought become a viable ship again; it was once the best cruiser in the game, I hope someday it can be again.

I don't have this ship but looking at the stats I agree it is a little lacking.

http://www.stowiki.org/Federation_Dreadnought_Cruiser

I think a tenth console (either Engineer or Science) and a turn rate of 7 to compliment the spinal lance a little is certainly called for.

Side note, this prolly belongs in the Federation Shipyards I assume it will get moved there shortly.

I have been begging for a Fleet Variant for months now.... I even have a fleet module for it already.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Considering the poor shape the current variant is in, making a Fleet Version would be a mondo kick in the teeth to those who bought the Galaxy-X and aren't currently in a fleet. On top of that, it would most likely be a Tier IV or V Fleet ship.

I'd rather see the G-X get a straight-up buff. A LtCmdr Tac Boff and a 4th Tac Console slot or a 3rd Sci Console slot would do the trick.

All Dreadnoughts from both factions could use a second shield slot or at least a further boost to shields. Wouldn't make them the best ship out there still but it'd make them more like a dreadnought.

At the moment they have about 50% the shield strength of most ships, as the turn rate is that low.

If you make it a boost across the board nobody can cry fowl there.

I believe it was in the Typhoon thread that it was hinted that Tier 6 / Fleet Admiral might have Dreadnaughts as standard ships.

So if that's true, I wouldn't be surprised if the Galaxy-X got an upgrade to the new standards.
NO to ARC!

I totally agree!
The Dreaddy needs an upgrade. I have been posting about this for months now.

The only way the ships Boff layout would change would be as a fleet ship, really what it needs is the boff/console layout from the excelsior, I can imagine that lance would be frightening with APO+APA running on it

The solution is to join a fleet. Don't like fleets? Tough, do it anyway. Or at least accept that you won't get the top-tier ships and gear.

Many fleets have more ship provisions than they do members, temporarily joining a fleet to exchange a agreed upon donation to projects(Dilithium or otherwise) for access to fleet stores/ships isn't uncommon
