One thing that makes me wonder about this ship is the following. When in siege mode it flips over, fore is aft and aft is fore. Now siege mode decreases your engine power, so overall you go slower, but going reverse you should go faster than going forward, just as in normal mode you can go faster forward than backward.
In general I do not understand why reverse is so slow. The impuls engine is probably pulling instead of pushing and it seems it doesn't have much pull capability. But why not make an extra impuls engine for going backwards. Given the size of the ships, it doesn't seem there is no room for it.
Yes, I do use reverse thrust a lot on my escorts. Fly at target, full stop, going reverse, steering to keep the target in my firing arc. If you don?t move, you turn very slow and have a negative defense bonus.
I have the fleet Guramba and it's an awesome ship. I haven't done much with it but it did well in ESTF's with non-Borg gear on. It also has the most impressive animation for a ship in the entire game.
In fact before I bought it, I made a character just for the ship. I unfortunately haven't done much with him due how much a drain this reputation system is, but I did have a lot of fun an can imagine how much fun a fleet of these would be.
Guramba fleet now that would be an interesting fleet.
