So after the most recent update, there was an addition to the Odyssey and Bortasqu 3 ship sets. At first it seemed like it was great, and that these ships would finally be brought back up to speed.

However... soon after I decided to actually try out my Odyssey, I put two of the pieces on, and then took it outside DS9. And then looked at the actual bonuses... and here they are:

Starship Hull Armor: +12
Starship Hull Plating: +12
Electro Plasma Systems: +12
Turn Rate: +0.5

...

Ooook. Seems alright. Until I realized it adds them to the SKILL ITSELF, not your actual resistance and EPS ability. Which meant that it translated to ~0.1% added resistance (which when I actually looked at my resistances when taking the pieces on and off, I saw no differences at all in my status bars), and +1 power to each EPtX. That alone was rather... saddening. Then I looked at the turn rate bonus. I figured that since I saw that on the ground, it would be weaker. And then I saw it in space. And guess what, still 0.5. Which makes almost no difference. Whatsoever.

The 3 piece bonus is nice however. Grav Well 3 and worker bees. For your chevron sep. Not bad. In fact, borderline decent. But the 2 piece bonus... just... I have no words for how... lackluster it is.

When compared to the 2 piece bonuses of other ships, it's just sad.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

So after all those threads clamoring for a revised set bonus for the Odyssey, it finally happens, and now complaints?

That's just entertaining.

Is it better than what existed prior? If yes, then ... ?

It is better in the sense that there is a 2 piece bonus now. But as for whether or not it's better than the original? I am not sure about that.

I will admit it's an improvement. But comparing it to newer ships, it's still disappointing. Not surprising mind you, but disappointing.

hmmmm only the enhanced chervon separation is new the 2 piece set bonus is the same as it ever was. the chervon sep upgrade is nice and all for it but it be nice if the destroyer too got some sort of bonus like hy 3 and tac team 3 or haz emitters 2 ? since you can't use both the destoryer and sep at same time..

But I do think the turn buff should be more like 1-2 on both bortas and oddy sets and maybe a 5-8 buff on the skills since the changes to these skills is negligible(0.6)

Yup. But not likely to happen. Just felt like I should comment on it, since it's intent, as... noble as it was, the end result is rather insulting tbh.
