This layout is ideal for the D'Deridex, absolutely perfect. How do I go about sending this man a ham, and/or gift basket.

Personally I hope the fleet D'Deridex keeps it's boff layout, it was very versatile looking and would fill a large number of roles and builds with that Lt.Commander universal. If it's the same as the retrofit though I think it won't be the ship of choice for anyone but the D'Deridex fans but at least it's better than the galaxy-r.

I do think the D'Deridex retrofit suffers from being a jack of all trades master of none. While some may like that I personally would rather see a versatile ship that can go heavily into an area that you need it to go into. The console layout is a bit more balanced but then I had no problems with it before, just means I can get moar dakka out of it for less effort =D

What are you talking about with a lt.com universal on the D'deridex? I have seen a lt. universal in the ambassador boff seating it had, and an ensign universal in the recent change, but no lt.com universal... unless I've missed another update somewhere.

I am pretty sure the previous boff layout was this below. One of the main complaints in this thread and others was lack of access to Lt Cmdr Tac.

Lt Tac
En Tac

Cmdr Eng

Lt Cmr sci

Lt uni

2 tac consoles, 3 sci, 5 eng for fleet version

Before that it was even worse, had same layout as galaxy.

Do not worry, those people who complained about lack of lt.cmd tac and tac console will soon ,aka when the expansion is launched, complain about their crappy D'Deridex that explodes too quick.

A little jealous that the Galaxy didn't get a makeover also?

I am not worried about it exploding to quick, Cmdr eng and lt Cmdr sci is all you need to make a tanky ship, it just won't have too much extra heals to give out. You can use doffs and keep EPTS3 up permanently and run Aux2sif3 with the heal proc doffs, and still have room for an RSP and run TSS3, and HE2, PH1, ST1 in the sci and uni slots, or move it over to tac for 2 tac teams. Lots of options to make this ship tanky, and if that fails there is always evasives/ramming speed/APO then battle cloak.

You were mistaken in an earlier post where you said that it had a lt Cmdr uni in its previous layout, you are correct now, the uni was Lt.
