I am in Ker'rat right now.

Fed Player is running around in a Fleet Somrow raptor

I.K.S. McNasty.

Fed Fleet
Fed Charactor.

KDF Fleet Ship.

How is this possible?


It's not a holo, actual bio states fleet somrow raptor.

I have his data logged, but want to know how this is possible.

There is a bug in Kerrat where you can die and respawn on the Fed respawn point and it will allow you to attack your Faction - so a KDF ship could attack other KDF ships.

That is the only way I am aware of something like that happening - unless it is a Dev out having fun.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

weird, I imagine there's probably a good explanation, maybe a Dev out hot-rodding?

Not a dev, Because the @ handle didn't match any known devs, or any Cryptic employees known.

And none of them are a part of a regular (large) fed fleet.

And per Parse data, the player in question was rolling 34k DPS....

3X more DPS than any other escort I've ever seen in this game.

Devs have work accounts and personal accounts - and the handles do not always make it apparent who they might be.

he was doing this in a RAPTOR??? okay, something is definitely NOT right here, maybe a whole STACK of somethings, beginning with how he managed that in a RAPTOR. I could see it in a Fleet Defiant (5 tac consoles, right build,right Doffing and right Boff powers) or a Kumari, but a RAPTOR???

For those of you who only know Fedside...

KDF has no escort-level ships that carry 5 tac consoles.
KDF Raptors have an unfortunate pivot-point issue that gimps their handling compared to Fed Escorts of the same tier level-this means it's pretty much an assumed that if you're Fed, and you want to fly an Escort, you don't want a Raptor (even were one available) because by and large, in comparison, Raptors SUCK ROCKS compared to Federation Escorts of the same Tier, both in pve, and Pvp play.

Specifically now, at T5, where you find Fleet ships, the Somraw IS the best Klingon raptor available-but it's about on a level with the 'Free' Federation escorts in terms of power&handling, and slightly less durable.

Now,you're CERTAIN it's not a KDF-branch version of a known fed fleet? Like, say, Third Fleet's KDF side (recently resurrected) or a Fed PvP fleet that's rolling on their KDF alts?
