yeah. Cardassians and Klingons should be "armor" tanks and Romulans and Fed "shield" tanks.

Flys in the face of canon? -please show me where its established the D'deridex has less armour or durability of ships from other factions?

Hope is not the 20 secs of footage showing the D'deridex hit by the Chintoka orbital platform as that's just subjective interpretation. All vessels hit go down quick regardless of race/vessel.

Reputation for strong shields? Where do you get this from?

I think it's fine as it is; the fleet version is at fleet tier 1, so if you want 4 tac slots it's right there for you. If they did change the retrofit, the fleet version would need to have a console other than tac added. The cloaked-fired ubertorp is going to be scary enough with 4 ambiplasma consoles + the 2-console set + the KHG set + the Rule 62 console (that' a 167% boost to torp damage). It doesn't need yet another 30% boost.
So, I am sitting alongside a Caitian Atrox Carrier at Earth Spacedock, and I think to myself "Man, that ship has a lot of windows".

Then it occurs to me that it makes a lot of sense, because cats love to sit in windows.

problem with that is that i cant trust myself around fleets, ive had so much bad luck with the whole thing.. i would rather hope the retro comes back to 4 tac slots.

No offense, but your experience with other players isn't really a good reason to go and make a change to a ship for everyone.

Besides, like I said, it's at Tier I - go make some alts and make your own fleet. No friends required.

I hope they put in a bunch of missions that are raiding type so all these bop type ships can get some use more than they can now.
