As per the title, this topic asks the question - what does the Federation get?

Romulan's special thing is "Cloaks and Singularity";
KDF's special thing is "Cloaks and Cannons";
Feds get what?

I propose subsystem targetting for all Federation ships (and a "meaningful" Phaser "proc"). Discuss.

    Someone will say: "everything else".
    It might as well be me.

    Well, maybe they have this for the KDF and RR to entice you to those factions. Romulans get cannons as well, and not all KDF ships have cloak.

    FEDS get: WAY more ships, more content, larger playerbase and quicker queue times.

    Cryptic, please disregard this thread.

    A complete faction, and a lot more attention from the devs. And faster bug fixing.

    Roms get everything everyone else gets with more cloaky, valdore consoles, crits and pet's.

    With -10 to all subsystems, they still get +75 to most things, not that they need shied power with consoles that out tank BO abilities, singularity powers stronger than rank 3 sci abilities, defence bonuses coming out of cloak, and a battlecloak that makes you in visible when when they are 0km.

    They are hilariously broken.

    I don't think you need to include the word "faster" when referring to bug fixes.

    The Feds get all the C-Store stuff to buy, and thus financially support the game, so others can complain about how unfair it all is. :D
    STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

    Cruiser Commands and secondary deflectors seem to be a big part of that. Give it 6-12 months of patches and escorts may wind up needing similar love.

    HAHAHAHA, you think Cryptic cares what anyone here writes?

    So cute.

    As for the "content" argument - *cough*laugh*cough*.

    What does that have to do with in-game functionality and attributes that ascribe some semblance of uniqueness?

    Feds get better and more diverse combinations of science and engineering capabilities than both the other 2 factions in game combined. That this bonus is somewhat irrelevant in the current build is a topic for a different discussion.

    feds have many many more choices than the kdf and romulans have combined.
    And will ever have.

    T5 Negvar? New BOP? lol. After purchasing the carriers, you can't bring their frigates to other carriers.
    Tell you what, I give you kdf cloak for as many options as you have.
    Should I start posting again after all this time?

    well in defense of KDF, their cloak is horrible...To the point of simply going into red alert will uncloak you...Its just really really buggy thats its near useless.

    Cannons? A large portion of feds can use cannons (Dual/heavy), just because every ship cant isnt really a negative, everyship shouldnt...

    Much, MUCH, more choice.

    KDF and the RR have relatively few good ship/build combinations.

    The Feds can happily try many variations on a theme, each as good or bad as the last.

    They also get to see well enough on their bridges not to fall over.

    (I just want a KDF bridge where i can turn the lights back on)

    science ships... oh and everything else too minus 1 or 2 thing... and if you didn't know feds get cloaks too,

    if I stop posting it doesn't make you right it. just means I don't have enough rum to continue interacting with you.

    Fixed that for you since Romulans have more 'battle' cloaks then KDF, and just about every Romulan ship comes with it. KDF mostly have standard cloaks.

    I wouldn't exactly say that KDF have cannons as their special thing since everybody can use them. Granted they have more ships that can use them then Feds. Cloaks are a special thing for them.

    The Feds get.........well they get........uniforms. Lots and lots of uniforms. And cruisers. Lots and lots of cruisers.

    So as far as ships go, I'd say the Fed's special thing are cruisers since KDF don't have any as they are a flight deck or battle cruiser. Romulan ships are mostly classified as warbirds and they have no full cruisers.

    All factions have quad cannons. But you are correct about the other stuff.

    While it's true that Feds don't have quite the problems that KDF have with outfits, there are places where even that is broken. On my Federation and Federation-allied Romulans, any Off Duty or Formal outfit slot eventually turns into a Uniform slot, making the outfit revert to some basic thing when you try to edit it. Because of that, you have to rebuild the whole thing to make even a minor alteration.
    This is an MMO, not a Star Trek episode simulator. That would make for a terrible game.
