Hello guys, i'd like to talk about lesser popular ships like the (original) Star Cruisers
and Heavy Cruisers
. I know they are by far not a popular as some Canon ship, not to speak of Galaxy, Sovereign or Defiant, but i think they have their very own charm and i'd love to have them at T6 level.
The very advanced looking Star Cruiser could have a come back as Science Cruisers, similar to the Nebula, but with a even bigger lean towards science. (maybe a Lt. Cmdr and Lt. Science)
They could be a Cruiser variant of the Vesta (aux beam arrays and so on) or even Intrepid. This would give them a very own place within STOs ship hierarchy without taking part of the "more Firepower!!!" loop.
I think it's a pity to see the only original (and nice) looking Cryptic made design being almost forgotten.
The Heavy Cruiser on the other hand could be a more like the Eclipse but without the cloak and a slightly stronger orientation towards tanking. They could also get a more flexible BOFF layout having a Lt. cmdr universal.
What do you think?
(Please keep it civil
