Regretably STO ist about Escorts. Cryptic does not care about the other ships.

IMO the Galaxy and it's subtypes need a buff, but I doubt Cryptic will do it.

Or Escorts need a debuff.
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.

ho, it been a long time since i saw one of those galxaxy x expert that actually never fly this ship seriously and tell us this kinds of magical sentence like " it the pilot bud, not the ship!"

heck, read this, a little descrition by regulus, one of the pvpbootcamp coach:

Or, are stuffed with C Store/Crossfaction consoles to give the impression they are "hard" to kill, when infact are just tedious.
if you don't get that, i suggest you to take time to outfit this ship and then share your wonderfull build with the rest of sto community, you will stop all the numerous thread complaining about this ship instantly!

Up till Season 3, I did quite well in the G-X.

The blanket nerf to shield resists, introduction of Universal Consoles, Doffs, Skill System Overhaul and overall boost to DPS has severely outpaced the G-X's capabilities, as well as most cruisers that aren't a C-store 3 pack or Lockbox ship.

Well said, although Cryptic would never admit this

I fly the X on 1 of my characters. It does work but it's not consistent. This is due to the accuracy problem of the Lance. I've killed many with it and missed many times as well. The ship itself is fine but the main reason for flying it over a fleet sovereign or excelsior is the lance. Just the other day I was pugging it on an arena 3 vs 5 klinks and we won 15-14 and I end up with top kills and dps even over the klinks... So yes its the pilot, build but the ship does need a fix and that should be the Lance.

Fix the Lance and problems and whining will go away

no it not the pilot dude, what any good pilot can do in a galaxy x, he can do better in a regent, exelsior, dkora ect.
i fly this ship too, for a long time now, i can kill with ease inexperience player or people that don't master their escort well, daes this make my ship "on part"? no it only make the pilots i am fighting with to go back working on their build.
and fixing the lance alone will certainly not make it an ok ship!

I was 1 referral away from getting this ship for free :-(

This ship can be a blessing and a curse. As is, the ship is aggressive with god DPS potential, but it has so many flaws that just make it a death trap. Most effective way I've been able to use it is as an cannon build ambusher: cloak, come up behind enemy ship(s), EPtW, APA, TT1, Grav Pulse, Scatter Volley, TS1, and Phaser Lance while escorts attack em from the front. But that said, once I'm uncloaked, I'm toast because I can't escape. With a Lt.Cmdr. Tac I could add APO, but I don't know if I would use it to escape. There is just something wrong about this ship.

Honestly, this would be a Fed ship I would give a Combat Cloak to. Now don't flame me, just hear me out. While I would love a Combat Cloak on the Defiant (and every Klink player would want me dead), I understand the balancing reasons behind this, the Defiant has a lot more hull and is a heck of a lot more survivable. But on a Galaxy X about all it would add is the ability to escape, that and free up a valuable console slot by making the power build in.

I dont use the cloak at all on the Gal-X, because its just too impractical to use. In an STF or fleet action it's actual use is extremely limited between moving, red alert cool down, and enemies to engage AND trying to rank in things like gorn minefield, there's just no purpose to it.

A battle cloak would make its use FAR more practical, but it'll never happen for the ship. Just leave your cloak in the inventory gathering dust, you'll find far more benefit from equipping something else in that console slot. I've been a Gal-X captain for about 2 years
