Hi, here another special ship for tactical officers! The current Duty Officer Pack Promo give you a chance to win a Jem'Hadar Attack Ship, an escort class. The Breen ship in the Winter Festival is a cruiser, yes, but with a high turn rate but less hull, more tactical officers/consoles, so a tactical ship. The Summer Festival ship is a frigate, so tactical ship. The 1000 days subscription is a destroyer, so a tactical ship. Do I forget any?

Why not a big engineer cruiser for a tank or a good science ship, from time to time. Yes my main is a tactical, with the 1000 days ship. Yes I have created a second one just so that one use de Breen ship. But I also have a science and an engineer on the Federation side. On the Klingon side, my main is an engineer and my second a tactical. On the Romulan side I have a science and an engineer officer. And I like to play them all!

But it would be fun to have some good ships for other classes from time to time. I gave the Summer Festival ship to my engineer, is a race ship, tweak for speed:-) But I will not really use it, unless they do a sub-warp speed race event.

So please, think about it for the next special ships...

Yeah, the lock boxes and events do favor escort types, and I'm a bit tired of it. Here is a run down of them (not even going into lobi ships):

Winter 2011 (and doff packs): JHAS, tactical
Winter 2012: Chel Grett (spelling?), tactical/science
Summer 2013: Risian corvette, speedy tactical
Cardassian lock box: Galor, tactical cruiser
Ferenig lock box: D'Kora, tactical cruiser/escort hybrid
Tholian lock box: Orb weaver, science/tactical hybrid
Temporal lock box: Wells, science
Dominion lock box: JHEC, tactical
Tal Shiar lock box: TSAD, tactical/science hybrid (I think)
Elachi lock box: S'Gloth tactical/?

I'd love to see more engie ships.

Because Escorts sell more....also any career can rock Escorts, so they are not selling to Tac captains

Tacs are special and Devs like them.

I suppose the obvious question is... why do you assume you have to be a tac captain to fly them? I happen to like off class slots, they help me with my own class' weaknesses.

My Fed engineer is devastating in an Armitage.
KDF cruisers are just awesome. Even my klingon TACs use them from time to time.

I also think that after the Regent saw nothing but hate in the forums after it's release, the Devs are a little gun shy about making another.

I'm a Tac in a Fleet Corsair Flight Deck Cruiser when is mostly focused in Sci and Eng bridge officer powers. I like that between my Captain tac abilities and 2 tac BO powers plus Distruotor Point defence Turret, 5 BO sci powers and 5 Eng BO powers plus a few other odds and ends including hangar bay, that I actually have a very well rounded ship, my Tac Captain status balances out tye ships Sci and Eng focus.
