Both of those ships are recent retrofits. Learn to read.

Age usually bears no relevance to ship capabilities in STO, because most ships at Tier 5 are retrofits, refits, fleet retrofits, ...
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Design that long overdue Tier 5 C-Store Raptor
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

I don't doubt that support is much valued in PvP. However, the way STO designs its PvE, everything goes super awesome if all participants are geared for maximum DPS. A cruiser with a turn rate of 7 can't do this very well.

What a shame, the kamarag is one of the best looking KDF ships to come from Crypric in a while but utterly useless to anyone but the healboat drivers.

Can I simply have the skin for my breen cruiser ?

It's not bad, compared to the Heavy Cruiser Retrofit. Basically it's got more Sci ability and a slightly larger hull and it turns a point slower. Compared to the Galaxy Retrofit though, If I follow Cryptic logic the Galaxy should have 40K hull instead of 39K since it is slower.

Poor Galaxy gets the shaft on that one. Only thing the Galaxy has going for it is the 1000 crew.

Why do you say that? A turn of 10.5 and likely being able to use DHCs (Cryptic is notorious for not getting stats right in the initial post) means this will be a different flavor Vor'Cha, which is an awesome ship.

I must be doing something wrong, my engie kicks more butt in a raptor (and lives longer) than a cruiser , so I can't even use this new ship without a major modification in his specs and my playstyle.

I won't even consider this ship for my TAC.

Yes, disappointed.

I've updated the blog to note that the T3 and T5 version of the Kamarag can equip cannons (dual and dual heavy, of course)

Cheers,

Then enjoy your free ship and stop reading the negative comments.

And no one cares if you dislike soup.

It saddens me to see the reactions of a certain element. Their selfish complaints should not overshadow the joy many of us are feeling that Cryptic are finally filling what has long been the most glaring gap in the lineup of iconic vessels this game features.

I would have settled for more free Q photos instead....another useless ship...what is free? what the heck....for those who loved the Ambassador...what were you thinking? Another ship (cruiser Dreadnought) that looks like an upside down vacuum cleaner... and slow as a snail in space
