I've been away for a while, and now that I'm back I see some shiny bling on the fed side such as the Avenger, vesta etc, not to mention the Romulan ships. I am asking myself; what has happened in that regard on the KDF side? Which is the latest unique KDF ship? The latest ship that the feds didn't get their version of as well?
A contract is a contract...(but only between Ferengi).
The newest purely new KDF ships are the Bortasqu (and its Hoh'sus BoP), the Kamarag cruiser, and one could kindasorta argue that the dramatically changed BOFF layout of the Fleet Vor'cha (aka Tor'kaht) makes it fairly unique as well. But yeah not much compared to Odyssey/Regent/Armitage/Vesta/Kumari/Ambassador/Avenger.
wow I thought the latest one was the veteran reward raptor ship with the battle cloak that works only like a normal cloak.
It has 4 forward weapons and 3 back ones, has 3 device slots....and 9 console slots(the same as a b'rel)
Crew stations being a commander tactical, lt commander universal, and lietenant science and lietenent engineer with an ensign universal.
750 crew, and a little higher hull then a B'rel, oh and has a .83 shield peanalty as opposed to the .88 on a b'rel.
I thought the bortasque came out a few years ago....as in before they made a veteran ship available for Klingon players....
but I guess I could be wrong.
I was comparing this to a b'rel because I was thinking it might be a better ship....and found it to be inferior.
The Nu Bops-the B'rolth and Qaw'Dun-playable at Level 0 and 10.
everything else outside the fleet system is copy/pasta of a Fed ship, but with gimping action applied.
Kamarag: a thinner-skinned Ambassador.
Pe'ghu: a thinner skinned and thinner shielded Chimera
Bortascrew: an Odyssey, with gimped turn rate, less shielding, crap consoles, and a main gun you can't actually use thanks to the turn-rate gimp.
and of course, the "Io'hyU", which is jsut a letter saying "We finished the stats, but we're shelving it to free up resources for space-Barney, the Purple Dinosaur with lazors on his hed!11!"
"when you're out of Birds of Prey, you're out of ships."
