So.. what would you speculate the ship will have?

From the picture on Facebook, I'd guess:

Cmd Tac
Lt Tac
LtC Uni
Lt Sci
Ens Engi

Otherwise it'll have the same stats as a Raptor, but with out the Cloak.

You think that your beta test was bad?

Also from the Raise in the top, I'm suspecting it'll have some kind of Console or maybe even Special Dual Beam Bank or something like that. Perhaps an Overloaded Beam Bank.

I hope it doesn't have a layout like that. That Lt Cmdr uni isn't even really universal if you make it that way since it would have to be engineering.

We haven't had a escort with this layout yet-

Cmdr Tac
Lt Tac
Lt Eng
Lt Cmdr Sci
Ensign Sci

Bran says 3 versions in the C-Store. Everything for me will hinge on 3 things:

1. Turn
2. Inertia
3. Pivot point (it looks long)

Only 1 of which they're going to tell us up front.

That's called the MVAE.

No, the multivector has ensign tac slot. The Mobius and Breen ship can come close to this layout also but end up with ensign eng instead. There isn't really a true sci heavy escort.

Also this layout could be fun as eng heavy escort, armitage comes close but also gets 3rd tac slot.

Cmdr Tac
Lt Tac
Lt Cmdr Eng
ensign Eng
Lt Sci

kk its a 3 verison c store ship. Take the bug, fuse some armitage functionality in it. Something among the lines of:

Any Bo layout you want if you buy all three. Best turn in game, great pivot, 6 tac consoles, bonus consoles add 50% dmg to DHC. Free DBB BO3 every 15 s, does not need weapons energy. 1 rapid fire hangar bay, it s like having 2 in the form of 1.

I sense a big break from pvp coming up.

I think we can all atleast agree to that...

Edit: Uhhhhhh, I forgot the hangar bays. No C-Store ship is complete without nowadays...

I doubt that any of them will only have 3 tac consoles on an escort....

More likely

4 / 3 / 3
4 / 4 / 2
4 / 2 / 4

With 4 tac units being the standard 4 on all 3.

The only thing I think may or may not happen is the inclusion of uni consoles... seeing as these things are going to have 3 versions... I some how doubt very much Cryptic is planning to tank sales on all 3 by giving any of them uni anything.

They will be

Cmd... Lt Cmd (of the 3 flavors)... with lt sci and engi... with likely an engi ens... and mabey perhaps the ensign may be universal... but I doubt they will eat into sales by offering uni slots so people don't need to buy more then one to change setups.

maybe itll be the fed bop -all universal- with more hull an no cloak. the 3 versions com in for the console layout and the 3 different consoles itll be able to use.

what 3 things did we see the andorians do in star trek enterprise that they could possibly convert to be a "thing" this ship will do?
