I got the Yellowstone for free during that particular promo, and I'm wondering if it would be worth investing in one or more of the other small craft on the C-Store. Is there one that's 'better than all the rest'? Or do they all have a mostly-balanced set of strengths and weaknesses, each suited to a particular play style? For example, I play a Tactical Captain, with a penchant for doing 'fancy stuff' (read: 'Trick Shots'). In other words, I like to screw around a lot with the BOFF abilities, more often than not resulting in a longer-than-necessary skirmish.
but i read that the delta flyer lacks from a tractor beam, which is quite good fighting that fast moving shuttles during the event
A tractor beam can hold one shuttle at a time, then you've got a long cooldown. Equip a fighter with an issue-s beam-array (the blue mk xi from rerunning the vault mission) and maybe a dual-beam bank, get a Boff with Fire at Will 1 and enjoy the lightshow
If Star Trek Online was an Open-Source (GPL) Game, we would have a low-grind fork.
