One of the devs is having fun with him and keeps cloaking the ship as he tries to take the screenshots is what I heard... /cough

Scimitar will only have 1 hanger . But atleast we can spam some elite pets I suppose. And pets like Shield Drones with heavy Pew Pew can make for some angry players if she is as nimble as I read. (Read a blog on it)

I'm disappointed.

I was hoping for a decent option for my FedRom Sci to fly, instead of a ghetto RSV clone. Instead, it looks like Tacs rule the day. Again.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

Well, it has the same BOFF layout as the Vet-ships, which means that you can A2B the hell outta it like you can those, and most other Romulan ships. Or science it up more, or treat it more like a 'standard' BOFF layout by having a Lt. cmdr tac.

Choices, choices. Gotta find the money to buy it, but that just gives me time to think.

12 Tac Cmdr ships (counting MU & Fleet)
6 Eng Cmdr ships (counting MU & Fleet)
3 Sci Cmdr ships (counting MU & Fleet)
No VA Sci Cmdr ship...hrmmm.

Still, I have hope that they drop out the Romulan Science Vessel from TNG that was mentioned in one of the podcasts somewhere down the road as a VA ship (as well as having a Fleet version)...

interesting, its not so OP or UP. 40k hull is totally reasonable, it had strong shields not necessarily strong hull. vet ship station setup with 7 turn and a hanger, hmm its still gonna be sorta a hassle to get it to perform with escort weapons super well, with only room for 2 turn consoles on the 5 tac console ship. the 2 console bonus will only buff turn a flat amount, not increase the base. i might just have enough zen and dil to afford this actually, im quite tempted. id be less tempted if it was more powerful actually.

is that -50 wile firing wile cloaked gone? didn't see that downside listed. just that afterward your power would be drained. but that wouldn't mater much, your still cloaked.

maybe the sci version should have had 4/3 weapons, and a second hanger. im not one of them, but i think a lot of people want a 2 hanger romulan ship, and the other 2 versions give a good selection of consoles and have 5 weapons as it is. a bit more diversity there would not be a bad thing.
