  • 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…
  • My biggest disappointment was sending a Cardassian, a Bajoran, a Breen, a Klingon, and a Romulan out for 'drinks on the town' - completely expecting chaos, destruction, and an epic fail... And they had a marvelous time and bonded over drinks and story.
  • http://i.imgur.com/eC2sL1x.jpg The Ancile on a deep space mapping mission. Probably my favorite shot of her so far.
  • I agree. I'd love to get an easy way to access the Solanae warp core without having to buy the ship on every new alt. It's my favorite space set - and there's no real way to acquire it for alts. Maybe 'If you've collected this item on a character, you can unlock it for your account for 500 zen'
  • The problem with 'Stop making content and fixing bugs' means the game is in what's called 'Maintenance Mode' - meaning it's only running until the licensing runs out, and they're pulling the plug. If Cryptic doesn't release content to sell - they don't make money. Cryptic doesn't make money, we don't have a Star Trek game.…
  • While we are due T6 escorts - I think the most likely choice for the next ship would be a dedicated T6 carrier - as outside the Breen holiday ship, there isn't a 'faction carrier' released yet. Though there does need to be some escort love. Back to the Nebula though, it would be amazing if it came as '1.5 pack' - The tac…
  • Actually we can say they were based on the same model. Because when the original ship artist updated the model before he left - he updated it and that's when the lance and additions became misaligned. I will play devil's advocate and say that they can't just slap the 'X' additions on the new Galaxy because they would…
  • This event is actually intended to get new players, or those who have left, back in the game. It's 'see the content, catch up to older players quickly'. The account perks are so those of us - like me - who's alt is max level with awesome fun stuff can join in if I want - and if I want to see the story that's changed over…
  • While the Scimitar does have higher dps potential - she also can't take the beating an Andromeda can. So it's a give and take.
  • Then it loses the ensign tac station. /shrug. Whatever the next ship is doesn't matter. The Galaxy looks awesome and flies well. If another ship is released with an awesome build and skin, great for the people who want it. It doesn't devalue the ship we wanted that is a great fun ship now.
  • If you like the Galaxy - now is the time to buy it. The Andromeda/Fleet Exploration is absurdly durable, has good to very high fire power (there are ships who outgun her, I won't deny it) - but no one will roll their eyes when you warp in anymore. The console 3 pack is amusing, but not mandatory. The three tac consoles…
  • So - broke mine out and got a fleet variant and did a few runs on her. Very good ship. She gives a fair beating and can take three times that in return. The Galaxy model is awesome - and if anyone really dislikes the starfleet emblem - change your fleet emblem to 'Energy type - Phaser' in red color 4. It fits the rest of…
  • And I disagree. A new beautiful model, a second beautiful model for the new skin, a very strong flexible boff layout, a solid console layout. This is a complete and total victory. Maybe, maybe mine 5 points for the new skin not going to the X - but it'll come in time. I know there are people who want a fourth tac console,…
  • Very very nice. Thanks for posting.
  • Different ships, different builds. The only thing most of us in this thread wanted was a universal ensign so we didn't have a power sitting on constant cooldown. The changes to the Galaxy are very good, she's a very solid, very flexible ship now - and yes, the X and Sovereign will probably have 4 tac consoles. The changes…
  • So I'm stuck at work - so if anyone can take some pictures of the updated Galaxy and let us know if she has any customization options. (phaser strip nacelles, etc). And how the neck/battle bridge looks with the saucer separated - I'd appreciate it greatly.
  • Actually, I'm quite content with what the Galaxy is now. It doesn't matter what the eventual Sovereign is - except people who like it will be happy. Though she won't have 5 tac consoles - that's restricted to escorts just like 5 eng is restricted to cruisers. She has a playable build now without relying on 4 other players…
  • We can safely assume 30 per ship, 60 for the 3 pack. Same as the Command BC's. With 5 or 6 fleet modules per ship, 1 if you own the zen variant.
  • Which is the problem with the Prime Directive in the series. It isn't enforced in either case except for 'drama moments'. Any culture with a true non-interference directive is going to stay in their own system, they're going to blockade the holy hell and beyond out of it - and they're going to ignore the Galaxy. You can't…
  • Well, in the case of communications and surveillance - if they've built a communcations device capable of FTL - and reach out - that's one of those cases where a Starship with a proper first contact crew is dispatched. They have knowledge of faster then light technology, they've developed the building blocks to find their…
  • https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CBiTAaCU8AEo_SV.jpg:large A very nice before and after shot. Mr. Marrone has done a damned fine job with this. I'd love to see the neck section without the saucer - but I shall tomorrow. Now what uniforms do I want my crew in... TNG, TNG Film, or Odyssey... The choices are so difficult...
  • They're being released tomorrow. It says so in the first dev blog.
  • Ummm... I'd rather not. How about my type 8 shuttlecraft? You know, the one that's wrecked and disabled and mistreated every twelve episodes.
  • I dislike the Prime Directive. It's - at it's best - a moral plot device. At it's worst, it's draconian and beyond heartless. Instead of a blanket 'You won't interfere with another culture' - which Starfleet violates all the time - there should be a policty of 'You will not uplift a culture that isn't ready for contact,…
  • It's so beautiful.... /sniff. If this isn't an April fools joke, it's all been worth it. And the most amazing/shocking part... Q: Will there be fleet versions of these ships? A: Yes! Each of these ships gain +1 Engineering console slot and +10% Maximum hull hit points and +10% Maximum shield capacity. They will be made…
  • The 2 piece can be used on the Andromeda - it's labeled "Any Exploration Cruiser variant" in game now. Though I'm really starting to doubt that it'll 3 piece with the new console with it being available to all 3 factions.
  • I actually meant the 'battle bridge dome' on the neck when you saucer sep. On the current galaxy it's smooth with just the phaser strip beneath it. And I don't mean I want them to stink. My wallet does. lol. But yeah, I'm pretty excited.
  • Wow... as amazing as that looks - I wonder if they modeled the battle bridge on to the battle section when saucer sepped. My wallet is kind of rocking back and forth whimpering 'Please let their layouts stink'...
  • You've never had a single problem - that doesn't mean no problem exists. I've gone from Sol space with my trays perfect - straight into a queue and had everything reset. Loadouts, boffs unassigned, powers lost, trays empty. Neither of my saved loadouts - which worked on the map prior - would fix it. I got my boffs assigned…
  • Huh... From that Angle she's very, very badass looking...
