You want a D'Deridex to have a 10 turn rate?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

We want decent cruisers. LoR was the answer for that, until they made the turn rate 5.5. Now its WORSE than fed side.

edit - damnit virus, you keep changing your sig on me. And you changed your avatar! Wish I could. guess you gotta pay for that.
Equip an RCS and hit your freakin' cloak, it improves your turn rate by an incredible level.

Yeah, some people really need to learn how to exploit their strengths instead of constantly trying to compensate for their weaknesses....

D'D makes an AWESOME Dragon Flagship. It truely breathtaking just how much of a beating that thing can dish out. It's even more fun being able to thumb your nose at Elachi Crescent Bolts because you know your shield can absorb the hit.

I believe it's +10 base, but increases as points are put into Maneuvering Thrusters (or whatever the skill is that improves your maneuverability).

For the love of Fippy Darkpaw...leave the damn ship alone already!


L2P or get out of my kitchen


I stated once already in this thread

evasive manuevers, cloak, attack pattern omega 1, auxilliary to dampners are just a few things one can do to improve the turn by the hit of a click...gosh people

secondly...stop saying it has a low hull...stop looking at the damn level 30 ship and look at its retrofit counterpart at endgame...it has probably the highest hull ingame (fleet version, I could be wrong but I do think it tops the galaxy fleet just barely)

So it turns slow...durring the Dominion War..how many...go count...D'Deridex did anyone see turning on dimes? no what they did was form walls and move slowly toward the targest like massive scary tanks

This isnt a fed ship, this isnt a kdf ship, so to the OP and every other person wishing it to be so..just dont fly it and leave it to the professional romulans like me..k thanks

That 4th engineering slot on the fleet D'Deridex. That's where the purple RCS console/tackyokinetic converter goes.

Cloaking just so you can turn is retarded. What if you're surrounded with a total barrage from all sides, hit the cloak and your dead. 1/2 the npcs can see you while your cloaked anyways. were not asking for escort turn, a 7-8 base would be an awesome improvement and this issue would drop. as it is right now if you really need target facing your mostly screwed.

The Jem'Hadar Dreadnought Carrier has a turn rate of 6. Most of the Klingon Battlecruisers have turn rates in the 9-10 range. If anything this game is inconsistent with ship turn rates which seem to be based on well nothing at all. They just seem to assign whatever number they feel like in most cases. I'm convinced right now that they basically looked at the Galaxy (which is a terrible ship in this game already) and said well we gave this ship a turn of 6 and in that one episode of TNG they said the D'Deridex was slower the the Galaxy so lets give it a 5.5. Forget the fact that the episode mentions maximum warp speed only and never once in that episode (or the series) did they ever mentioned how the two compare maneuverability wise.
