# 1 Potential restructuring

Not a serious idea, but does anyone think it could be better for the Non-Klingon ships to be resorted so one of each is a tactical, science, or engineering vessel?

Are you talking about adjusting how they are in the shipyard and better categorize them?

Or do you mean changing their actual stats, in particular their BOFF layout?

The idea is this, Phalanx, Dacoit become escorts. Scourge, Corsair become science ships. Varanus and Guramba become cruisers.

Sounds interesting but there is a reason why those types of ships are the way they are. The Scourge is a small fast thing and is an Escort as a result. The Phalanx and Dacoit are just too big to become anything other than what they are I'd say

But I get what you're saying, such as each non-Klingon race have a Tac, Eng and Sci ship to use. I like this idea, but I think someone like the Nausicaans aren't exactly going develop a Science ship to explore space when all they do is butt heads over dom-jot ( )

No thanks. I got the corsair because I wanted a cruiser. There are options for having the same playstyle, but Klingons are supposed to play differently than the Federation. Romulans play differently than both, which is why they have singularity mechanics at a reduced power capability.

If every faction was exactly the same, there'd be no reason to have different factions.

I still want bare feet.... on ALL costumes.

It seems like an interesting theory but I purchased my ship because it was the class I wanted, if you change that class on me than I'll want a refund.

For example my Garumba goes from Escort to Cruiser so I'll want a refund.

Do you think Cryptic want to issue mass refunds. It's why they are so hesitant to give the Galaxy a Universal Ensign which would seriously help it.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

Not really, the Galaxy-R needs a Universal Lt. Cmdr as that WOULD help it as well the Dread since it would open options, universal ensign would be just "what cooldown you want shorter" that would offer nothing as the one you would want would be a Eng one anyway.

Agreed on the Guramba, but I don't think the Galaxy fits in there in the way you mention it.
As I understand it they're holding back on the Galaxy because they want to do some far more extensive changes to her. I hasn't anything to do with refunds. They recently buffed the Oddy and Borty and there was no demand for a refund there either.
