Well, my Idea for a T5 Exeter/Connie would be: LTC Tac/Eng/Sci/Uni but some might think that was OP.

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7 (That can be upgraded to a T5-U), the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.

Hey now, I still want my T5 Fleet Oberth Retrofit Carrier. It doesn't have any hangar bays, but you're able to launch a Redshirt named Biff at your target. EVA suits for Biff will be available from the Dil store.

Honestly though, until we see the specs (and not only see them, but fly it as well) we're not going to know...

I'd define it as saying that you are a Power-House of Legumes wrapped in a delightfully crunchy icon of Mexico.

Grind your Starbase to T6 and Embassy to T4 to get access to the Elite Biff Launcher right?

In all seriousness, given the hybrid kick that Cryptic has been on of late I'm of the opinion that the Ambassador effectively has to be more than just a generic 9 console T5 cruiser option.

That's pretty much my point. Date of service and tactical capacity are (currently) inversely related in STO when it comes to T5 Fed cruisers.

If I understand the interview correctly, if you play the mission during the Anniversary event, you can get both the T3 and T5 Ambassador.

After then event is over, the mission will be repeatable for just the T3 Ambassador.

It will always be available in the mission journal after the event ends, but only the T5 ships are awarded during the 3-year Anniversary event.

It can be that an old design schematic is used, but in fact it's a modern powerfull refit, you know, something as the fleet Excelsior is atm. Besides it's suposed to outshine the Excelsior. The thing is, the Galaxy needs to be tuned up just a bit to make it more competitive. Although, I personally like to play slower supertanks

I see your point. Is it that the Federation gets more peacefull as time passes by, so their ships are more oriented towards exploration and research rather than raw firepower?
Nah....the Vesta totally undermines my last point.
Looking for a genuine Star Trek experience?

Antares, Challenger, Constellation, Curry, Freedom, New Orleans, Niagara, Norway, Soyuz, Springfield, Sydney, Yeager...hrmm, they are running out of Fed ships (with some of even these being questionable - Soyuz was decom'd). Will be interesting to see how the 2409 designs continue.
