Does it bug anyone else that its Engineer heavy carrier but doesn't have 8 weapons instead of 6 weapons slot and the beam target subsysytems. Maybe just me or I don't fly carriers enough to know that make it over powered or something but kinda bugs me that it isn't more cruiser like seeing as it got the Engineer heavy part lol.

What race does this ship belong to? The Iconians?
This all happened... more, or less.

So instead, you now have to save up to purchase the more advance Lobi store variant...

If it had full 4/4 weapons, it would be a flight deck cruiser. And thus loosing a hanger.
Ingame carrier types:

- Escort Carrier: 4/3 weapons, 1 hangar, no frigate
- Flight Deck Cruiser: 4/4 weapons, 1 hangar, no frigate
- Full carrier: 3/3 weapons, 2 hangars, frigate (except for Atrox)
- Dreadnought Carrier: 4/3 weapons, 2 hangars, frigate (Kar'fi and Jem Dread)

Those are your 4 main carrier types.
The exceptions:
- Dreadnought Warbird Carrier: 5/3 weapons, 1 hangar, frigate
- Multi-Mission Carrier: 3/3 weapons, 1 hangar, no frigate

So that is why it has 6 weapons. For the additional damage you will have to learn to rely on your beautiful fighter pets.

I will run this ship one day but certainly won't be giving up my atrox for it on my science cat.

Perfect alternative for my Rommie Engineer. I'm glad I got it.

LOL Everytime a new carrier comes in STO someone is saying goodbye to the Atrox. And yet, mine still preforms just the way I want her to and is on the way of getting a fleet version.
Because true Starfleet Captains command Exploration Cruisers!
Thank you Cryptic for finally giving me MY SHIP!!!

They fill different roles. You can't run a science carrier with only one LTC sci slot. It is an engineering carrier, which is a completely different build.
Agreed. I would like this carrier if it resembled ANYTHING AT ALL THAT BELONGS IN STAR TREK. Ok, done ranting

Two things:

1) This ship does not resemble a Base-star, Base-ship, or anything even remotely Battlestar Galactica-ish in any way shape or form. And this is coming from a BSGO veteran who has watched both series (the original and remake).

2) I like the Obelisk, but there are things the Atrox can do that I wish the Obelisk could even dream about doing. And tbh, there isn't a whole lot the Obelisk can do that the Atrox can't. The only real difference is the massive DPS that the Obelisk pets are capable of that the Atrox pets can't even come close to doing.

Soooo no, the flying litter boxes will still be zipping around taking up space. Just sayin.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!

imo, looks like they crossed the kam'jatae mega-ship with the red sun.
the red lightning thing in particular reminded me of the red sun, though that memory could be a bit clouded.
Cryptic.
Figure out and address the players path of least resistance to reward. this one thing is THE consistent factor undermining all your efforts. be that crafting, raids or starbase projects.
