I have two Purple Conn Officers that cut down the cd of TT by 8 seconds each, requiring me to only run one copy of TT. And as for 1st Aquarius? They are a fleet that is giving out access to a Tier 5 shipyard for a specific cost depending what level of access you want.
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.

Interesting, I'll have to try that.

And okay, I'll see if I can contact this fleet on ESD or wherever they are.

It's fun and useful, especially for cruisers. And as for 1st Aquarius? This thread has all the info you'll need to get in contact with them: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=535891

I have a question about the fleet Excelsior: does it also have the transwarp? and do i have to get the C-Store variant first to get it or can i just get the fleet version?
I can buy the modules with EC so there is a difference for me

and my opinion on it: seems like the best cruiser for me at the moment. 4tac consoles and a good boff layout.

You can just get the fleet version. The fleet one is cheaper if you own the Z-store one, but it only makes sense to go this route if you're going to have more than one character buying the fleet version.

1 character buying fleet = 5 FSM
1 character buying Z + fleet = 2000 Z, 1 FSM
2 characters buying fleet = 10 FSM
2 characters buying Z + fleet = 2000 Z, 2 FSM

Loads of good threads on this very ship and even a youtube video or two comparing the two excelsior models and comparing and contrasting an all out cannon build vs traditinal beam set up. I purchased the fleet excel myself and was/am very happy with it personally, despite using my mobius more often than not. It tanks well and packs a punch. The transwarp drive is especially nice for getting around sector map.

I personally built mine as an all cannon build for fun and I can hold off probes and spheres happily on my own. Its easy to multitask in and can be a good addition to any team. As for what you build yours as, check out the Hilbert Guide and spec your skills appropriately. Here is the link for that video I mentioned above: Excelsior Showcase
"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward." - Rocky Balboa (2006)
