Legendary Walker Light Battlecruiser / Secondary Deflector

Made a similar Poll on reddit and the results were: https://www.reddit.com/r/sto/comments/ju6gax/legendary_walker_light_battlecruiser_secondary/
But I wanted to see what people think of this or if they want it to stay as it is.

    Why just this ship? Many posted as to why the new carriers didn't get a secondary deflector for them either...

    I'm not trying to bust your poll, but come on....

    Since it's an obvious bug I voted no, but I doubt it would be that impactful if they did leave it.

    I voted yes only because I like to see ships break the shells a bit and become more variable. It wouldnt be huge difference to keep the sec deflector since it lacks things the sci ships got, but it would make it more unique. That said i am sure Cryptic will remove it

    until a sci ship comes out with a 5/3 weapon layout, the secdef stays sci schips only IF they were to add to another class ship, it would be the sci fleet carriers, like the Atrox

    What would be the point in buying ANY Science ship then? Not even Carriers have it, and they're still less powerful than a Multi-Mission ship! Carriers need it, not the Walker. The Walker already has Command Controls.

    Battle Cruisers are in a good place, they don't need a buff.

    They certainly don't need to be taking away one of the few mechanics that makes Science Vessels unique and special.

    Discovery is good, it's you that sucks.

    I don’t see any benefits to this. Sea already covered the downsides that I agree with.

    Honestly doesn't really make much sense for the Walker to have one. There really isn't anything that the Walker does that a secondary deflector can augment. Maybe the effects of certain torpedos or the Plasma DoT on a plasma build, but that's a pretty narrow functionality for a battlecruiser with limited sci capability.

    there is a class of secondary deflector that buffs torpedoes, and the walker makes for a decent torpedo platform, so there's that

    but the slot being there to begin with is very clearly a bug, and it doesn't matter if there's an overwhelming outcry to keep it or not - cryptic isn't blizzard and they're going to remove it​​

    You do that and the devs will only dip further and further into the power creep, releasing expensive packs that aren't worth the value and ever stupider loot box ships just to milk the whales even more, just to have "unique" ships.

    I thought it was weird when I saw the secondary deflector on mine.

    Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you're there... you can make a difference.
