    there is actually a new sci skill on tribble though, that starts at LT, and basically turns aux power and particle gens into physical damage with 100% shield pen, that can also bounce between targets, sounds like chain lightning. SO, having something like a LTC sci with season 10 will mean they have access to what looks to be a bit of a game changing damage skill, especially if you ran TBR pull, and FBP. exotic damage was already stupid powerful, its like they want to make it strong enough for a pure sci ships to get through PVE as easily as an energy damage escort or cruiser, PVP be damned.

    There's also the possibility that it isn't going to be a Sci ability, but yet another hybrid that was temporarily tagged as Sci for testing. It could also never come into being at all, since it probably wasn't supposed to come to light at all.

    no, for some reason its stuck with the old galaxy costume, they didnt update it too.

    i want to see a redone nebula too
    I gotta say, as the Miranda to the Galaxy's Constitution, I don't think a lot of people appreciate how beautiful the Nebula is. That is one well put together ship. I'm curious as to what Cryptic might do with a Tier 6 edition.
    130 max in all subsystems at all times is pretty sweet, and even though it says it doesn't stack with other boosts like that, my warp core allows me to have 135 max shield power.
    Wow, that's beastly. Another reason to pick it up for me really.

    I was just watching Nemesis last night. With the Galaxy in Battlegroup Omega, we were that close to seeing a Galaxy get into it with a Scimitar. Man I wish the budget had allowed for the fleet battle, Tachyon Grid for the save.

    Happens to a bunch of movies. According to Nimoy's second biography, I am Spock, there was a scene he was trying to get worked into The Voyage Home in where Sulu is seen wandering around in mid 21st Century San Francisco when some small like 8 year old kid runs up to him calling him Uncle. After something like five minutes talking to this kid Sulu realizes he's speaking with his GREAT GRANDFATHER. Unfortunately the child actor when they were trying to film this scene got extremely distressed and started breaking down into tears so they cut the scene for the sake of the kid. Was put into the Novelization of STTVH though.

    And the scene with checkov asking for nuclear wessels being them literally on the street asking random people was awesome.

    Cold war is still fresh, and theres some Russian guy asking where nukes are, and some Nic lady just helps him out.

    Rolled up a KDF alt for the Delta Recruit thing and one of the first ships I destroyed in the tutorial was a shiny Galaxy class with the new skin on it. Felt like such a dirty traitor lol.

    oh man, but it's a freaking awesome opening to this game. I hadn't seen the new galaxy skin before I started a new Delta KDF character. It was soooo freaking amazing seeing that galaxy class with the updated skin warp in with a torpedo spread.

    I bet they cleaned up on this release. Sol system has been full of Galaxy Class since the release, they're everywhere.

    Gee, maybe it pays to listen to Player Requests after all huh Cryptic? :D

    I love how that was purely coincidence and the actors were really doing some amazing improv.

      Aww, kid you coulda been somebody...you coulda been a contender.

      My favorite cut line is a legendary Sulu quote in Undiscovered Country, "I always hoped if I was given the choice to betray my friends, or betray my country, I would have the courage to betray my country."

      What surprised me is the Command ships in those early missions. The Dewitt Geneva Command Battlescruiser.

      Although destroying a Galaxy Class in a piddly old Bird of Prey, does place us in the Lursa and B'Etor position doesn't it. Lucky we fixed our cloaking device.

      Pity there wasn't an Oberth for us to vaporize.

      Also great in that picture, one Romulan Warbird...a guest. :)

      In TV/movie Star Trek canon, there have been several ships carrying the name "Enterprise."

      NX-01, NCC-1701, A, B, C, D, and E.

      7 ships have carried that name. 3 of them have been lost in combat or as a result of combat action. Of the 3 lost, 2 were led to their destruction by a simple Bird of Prey. A famed ship name typically crewed and led by a number of the best Starfleet had to offer, using classes of ships that were at the forefront in power and technology... and yet 2 of the 3 Enterprises lost in combat were by a Bird of Prey.

      Not by a D'Deridex. Not by a Negh'Var. Not by a Vor'Cha. Not even a Scimitar destroyed one in battle. But 2 of the 3 losses, an Enterprise was done in by a Bird of Prey.

      I'd like to provide some positive feedback - the new T6 Galaxy feels much more useable at end game than the old T5 one did. The new model is absolutely stunning as well! :)

      Well the 1701 was actually killed by Kirk himself. But that's because Kruge had him in a corner and called the SH*T out of his bluff. I kind of wish Kruge had had more story, because MAN he was quite possibly the most boss Klingon commander until Martok himself. I mean with that kind of showing the one of Elite Three Klingons should've been there.

      Lursa and B'Etor cheated.

      Of course to Klingons they're cunning is to be lauded. It is impressive I mean, they actually managed to implement a strategy that allowed them to punch in the weight class of a ship they had no right not being vaporized by with a strong target lock.

      And that's why my first Klingon flies a Bird of Prey. Hegh'ta in the Delta Quadrant. :cool:

      Lursa and betor did indeed have a huge advantage by being able to bypass the enterprise D's shields. Any ship would have been severely damaged if not destroyed in this situation. But the enterprise STILL managed to destroy them first, and with a single photon torpedo.

      It probably doesn't count, but I've recreated that fight in Bridge Commander dozens of times. Me in a Galaxy, angled away from the BOP - no power to shields and shields down. Let them get the first hit - and I've always managed to pull off a win. A Galaxy just has too much firepower to be downed by a BOP - especially one that isn't hit and running, taking advantage of it's cloak.

      I take damage, sure - but never enough to take the Galaxy Class out. Never enough for more then a month in a space dock.

      Well I can try. I can't get them that large though.

      Here's a few shots I took from my favorite Delta patrol.

      Approaching the Pansarka system.

      Assuming standard orbit.

      Mission complete. Set course for the second star to the right, and straight on 'till morning.

      I really love that map. That's why I wish all planets were part of the skyfile and not the smaller 3D objects we usually get. They just don't have that sense of scale.

      Very nice shots. It's great seeing the new Galaxy running around.

      For the huge hi def screenshots, do "/renderscale 2" or "/renderscale 3" - make sure you use "/renderscale 1" when you're done though, because it'll really kill your game performance. But you can get some amazing shots out of it.

      It needed to be blown up for the plot, so they had something do enough damage to the warp core for it to blow up. They didn't even try ejecting the warp core, which would seem like a logical first step. Though that probably would have failed because Star Trek safety devices fail all the time.

      It's also a bit contradicted by the Oddyssey being able to take a beating and keep going from multiple Jem'hadar attack ships with ineffective shields (it seems the only reason it was destroyed is that it was rammed since it was making it's way back to the wormhole under it's own). Unless we want to try and rationalize the fact that those ship's weapons are less powerful than an out of date bird of prey.

      Star Trek is ultimately a drama and on screen evidence of how well a ship can do in certain situation is contradictory and unreliable.

      I understand it needed blown up for the plot - but having the Saucer land and then having the Galaxy battlesection self destruct to seal/repel the nexus and saving all those billions of lives would have been a MUCH more awesome death...

      As for the Odyssey - they had to kamikaze it - they couldn't bring her down with conventional firepower before she could get away.
