Heh, thanks. I literally couldn't think of words to respond to that with, so I used what first popped into my head. I know the Gal-X has its share of problems, but at the same time, I've invested time and research into it, and I know it has the power, it's just unlocking it.
(I just don't want to have to make a Fed Engie toon in order to be useful, if I can avoid it.)

being usefull with a dread is not impossible, with cannon or beam, it is more easy with beam tho.
it just that we have to give double effort to do things that other tact cruiser do just because the ship haven't been treated fairly in regard to it proffession and cstore rank.

as of today even the "niche" build of sir lancelot is not something that you can only do with the dread, the avenger with the cloack and cannon, a BO3 in one of it 5 weapons fore can do the job better.

Almost, but not quite, there is one important aspect that it cannot do - any more

The fact that the Galaxy-X, a ship that's quite frankly been left behind amid the power creep (coughcoughavengercoughcough), only gets two of these fancy abilities leads me to believe that there's going to be some overhaul for the ship. One that boosts it to the level of current Battlecruisers, or above. And that's just me trying to believe that Cryptic hasn't completely forgotten about a ship that they made a completely separate class for.

If not, well...

Just hoping that the big fix isn't just allowing saucer separation. Mainly because that ability is already obsolete because of the Odyssey. And the fact that throwing down another $20 to make a ship viable isn't too good.

While I would love for the X to get Saucer Sep(And the tactical options it may present, the Lance turns into two different weapons there), I am really hoping for some kind of overhaul. It needs the lovins.

Besides, I wanna show my fleetmates that even though I'm a Tac, I don't have to try and tank all the time. The Galaxy Dreadnought needs to be more than just a cruiser. Right now, it's just a crappy Avenger with a really big phaser. It needs to be a scary dreadnought again, something that can go toe-to-toe with any other dreadnought. I want the guy in the Scimitar to fear my Lance as much as I fear that Thalaron Pulse.

Exactly. As it stands now, it's almost a joke to go into PvP with the Galaxy-X. Last I heard, the Dreadnought Cruiser was supposed to be a huge, powerful battleship. Something that people aren't going to swarm around because they know it doesn't stand a chance against their JHDC or Scimitar Dreadnought.

With the stats that the Avenger has, it basically does everything the Galaxy-X does and more. Higher turnrate, more fore weapons, better shield mod, more tac abilities and consoles, cloak, etc.

And now the Avenger gets more Cruiser Abilities than the Dreadnought.

Personally, I think that just the inclusion of Strategic Maneuvering along with the other two powers would be beneficial for the Galaxy-X, simply because the turnrate is poor compared to other cruisers.

And that's partly why the Galaxy got the Dreadnought refit. It's a massive ship, a ton of strength, and the warp core to support the energy of the Phaser Lance, as well as the beam arrays and the cannons on the saucer.

And the Lance... While the Thalaron Pulse might be scary and maul stuff in a large area, let the Dreadnought's enemies know to keep separated, because there wouldn't be anything more gratifying, and intimidating that popping three ships at the same time with one Lance shot because they were in a row. (Or because you used the cloak and snuck up on them.)

The lance definitely needs a reworking. The weapon most comparable to it, the Guramba's Javelin, not only has the potential to do way more damage (200k+ Crits, I mean really), it has 1/3 the cooldown time and hardly misses, even against all those zippy escorts in PvP.

Heck, I'm using low-level gear on my Guramba, and its Javelin is still far better than the Lance.

Even just boosting the Lance's accuracy would be helpful, seeing as it seem more like the "sniper rifle" of those huge ship-mounted weapons we have in-game.

Agreed. The Lance seems to work best when the target is stationary. Locked down by tractor beams or Warp Plasma. Shame, really. It would make a good sniper rifle sort of weapon, givven the accuracy gets a boost. Damage boost would help too, a little.
