I always go back to the Nebula. I saved up and got the commander version as soon as I could when leveling my first character. Then I bought the cstore version and just recently upgraded to the Fleet variant.

I wonder what became of the proposed plan to give it the Venture components?

My Galaxy and Odyssey get some love too. Always fun to go back and take the Centaur for a spin just for memories and kicks. I think I'll run Tour the Galaxy in it next time.

Depends on the character.

On my Tac, the Dreadnought. With all of the tac's innate abilities, you can make this hunk of metal be a powerful force to be reckoned with (110k+ phaser lance, HELLO!). With the proper build, you can push her maneuverability up to and beyond the Vesta at times. Yea, her tac slots aren't the best, but again, with the tac's innate abilities, this isn't that big of a problem.

On my Eng, I have to go with the Regent. Superior firepower with some of the best tanking in the business. Though I am saving up for the Oddy on this one.

Sci char, the Vesta of course. No real reason not to use one of the best sci ships in the game with a sci char.

But seriously it would be quite corking and oh so nice if my Gorn could, I dunno,...................hijack a Excelsior using Marauding...............maybe tractor someone else's Excelsior over the FED/KDF Zone border.

Have a word with the Tholians.

I'D LOOK AFTER IT!!!! I swear. =3
I'd be fun to be able to steal (or win from a PvP battle) other people's ships (only 20 hours maximum, then it would be their's again.) Take it on a joy ride around the Galaxy, paint graffiti inside of it and paint the outside PINK. Have a crazy party inside. Then when they found it, they'd have to take it back to spacedock clean it up for about 7K EC or something...

Only 7k? Why you so lenient? My afterparty costs would be borderline millions. Sufficed to say... warp core coolant was not a good idea to use as a pool... My guys in their Env Suits survived... but the same cannot be said of the floor XD.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.

Actually i been hoping to find a ship that finally gets me off my MVAE. Maybe the Andorian Escort will do it not sure yet. Its not that i hate that ship actually quite the opposite but since I hit admiral a week after launch my tac toon has been sporting a Cerberus. That's a long time to be running the same ship. I have tried and own all escorts in game outside of lock box ships (which I'm not too fond of). As for my eng toon its the Excelsior I just love that ship do death but i do switch in the oddy every once in a while. My sci toon is using the Vesta but I don't play that toon much. My klink bounces around a lot. I haven't found anything that I feel really comfortable in yet, but if I had to pick one I guess it wold be the B'rel. I'd like to see a sciency fleet raptor but i dont guess its ever going to happen. but wait that would mimic my MVAE wouldn't it man i just cant get away from that ship lol.

Well, despite my love of the fleet Nova, I've found myself glued to my Vesta class recently - popped a MkXII Embassy/Romulan Particle console with the hull repair 'passive', as well as a MkXI Power Insulator with the shield repair passive.

VERY impressed - the embassy particle generator, in particular, seems to give the Quantum Field Focus phaser a nice boost, as well the obvious increase to GWIII and TR, and the shield and hull repair buffs are fantastic when they activate.

So guess I'll be sticking to the Vesta for a while

I'm still trying to wring performance from my Fleet Research Science Vessel Refit. The Olympic golf ball "saucer" with Hope hull and Horizon nacelles and pylons starts to resemble the canon hospital ship when using the Fleet material and as much white/white paint as the pattern options allow. It does a load of great work in battles with crowds but lacks DPS against stationary critters like nanite spheres. I want to find a configuration and tactics to get past that, I don't want to have to change. There's something innately cool about owning anyone or thing with a hospital. Unless I'm fighting a flying orphanage or something.

Have to say, that is one great looking ship and, in my opinion, one of the instances where they improved on the original (Defiant) design.
