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.

I like the Delta Flyer. It has the same hull and weapons layout as the others, but, it has 2 BOFF stations.
I love nice long walks in the country.
Especially if they're taken by people who annoy me!

Does it? I must have missed that. How does it fare in the Vault mission?

but i read that the delta flyer lacks from a tractor beam, which is quite good fighting that fast moving shuttles during the event

I'm afraid I don't understand.

Load your Flyer with dual turrets and the PDS. Lots of fighter dead, real quick.

And if you really want a tractor beam, you can put a BOFF in with that power.

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
First one half of the so called Community complains: "Give us instant access to all veteran rewards, for going lifetime.", then the other half of the same Community complains: "I've earned 1000 Day membership, I want a special reward.".
Stop complaining, if it is enough for you, you could have the "Captains Table" for the real veterans, I don't want access to another dead social zone...

You can also toss the Yellowstone's Plasma-Tetryon Engine in other small craft... I think you can still use its Tetryon Ejection ability in other craft, right?

So why should I pass up the Peregrine fighter? Is it not as effective in combat as it looks?

the primary advantage of the Delta appears to be its extra Sci Boff slot.

with that, you can slot a healing power (such as TSS or HE) in the sci slot, and leave your Universal open to a Tac Boff with a offensive ability
