  • I just hope they give us the option to buy them as a pack. If I can iconic my favorite ship for all 3 of my mains for 60 I might bite. If it's a full 90 for all three, I'll probably just settle with the Galaxy.
  • Oooh, very nice. And explosive aoe RSP... That could be... fun. C'mon good layout and beauty shots... They're one dev blog away from potentially shutting up a great deal of us...
  • Unfortunately - Cryptic's staff is too small to 'just go back and update everything'. Ship modeling and texturing is a lot of work. I'd say a minimum of 80 hours per ship, not counting the mix and match parts, the hardpointing, the scripting of special consoles and powers... It just isn't cost effective to go back and…
  • Well, if she gets the same beauty treatment the Negh'var did, if her boff/console layout is competitive at all (Pathfinder at least) - I'm sold. They did a really nice job with the updated Negh'var skin. Those underwing cannons are beautiful. I'm not a fan of the "saucer" with the protruding disruptor - it looks like it's…
  • But a lt tac, lt uni is a very flexible, very usable layout. It allows tac team, beta 1, torp spread 1, faw 2. She might not win a 100k dps contest - but she would be competitive and usable. It would also allow them to continue the 'Hero ship trinity' - no matter how misguided that trinity might be. Then for the eventual…
  • I don't think so. The Galaxy should follow the Pathfinder layout, very flexible and competent. We're most likely going to see: TAC Lt ENG Cmdr ENG LtCdr Sci Lt Uni Lt The reasoning is - only the Intel ships have the intel pod, so only the Command ships will have the Inspirational powers. The Galaxy/Negh'var will be more…
  • Well, we have quite a bit of evidence that a galaxy is coming. 1) The Galaxy console set was accidentally a 3 piece for about a day. 2) The Galaxy consoles have been reset to 'Any Exploration Cruiser or Dreadnought Cruiser variant' 3) The hypothetical leaked image looks way more like a Galaxy then the Odyssey. 4) In a live…
  • I think they need to dump the 'specialized ship' thing - and just make 'Hybrid seating'. The system is already in place - you can't have a boff with active intel and command powers at the same time. You want a command boff? You have your hybrid seat. You want your intel boff? Hybrid seat. Want a pilot? Hybrid seat. But you…
  • Oooh... the new Negh'Var has big honkin' spaceguns... Colonel O'Neill would be in love. Now I'm more impatient to see the Galaxy then ever...
  • I might be thinking of what another game called them. Maybe Birth of the Federation?
  • But would a Sovereign have more firepower? The Captain's yacht could be stripped out for a burst fire torpedo launcher like the Sovereigns. The neck torpedo launcher could be scrapped for two in the engineering hull where the hull meets the neck. If both were outfitted as best as possible for combat - if they were both…
  • When the Galaxy was launched she WAS the most advanced starship in the fleet. That mantle stood until the launch of the Intrepid and Sovereign - who's only honest tech advantage was bio neural gel packs and warp drive that doesn't harm subspace. No Starfleet vessel has an offensive classification. The Defiant was an…

  • The Galaxy's biggest weakness isn't her layout - it's the fact that there are fewer engineering powers then tac/sci - and fewer 'effective' engineering powers at that. A power that is never used because it's always on cooldown from other powers being used is a horrible choice - and with the Galaxy's ens and lt stations -…
  • http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showpost.php?p=22867431&postcount=73 Here's a post listing the pilot powers at the trainer on tribble. While the Galaxy should have a command, I would be quite pleased if she had a pilot hybrid seat. Hold Together would be an amazing power for a tank.
  • Personally, I'm just after a modified pathfinder layout. It would be very usable, no major weaknesses, a very good power spread and variety. I've never wanted 'OP MarySuePrise', I just want 'usable and fun'. No builds relying on powers and consoles that are one patch from nerf and one annoyed dev from an exploit. No having…
  • Do you guys ever think that the T6 Galaxy is finally coming because they just really want about seven of us to shut the heck up about her and for us to go play the game? And yes - I include myself in the 'seven'.
  • If you google 'T6 Exploration Cruiser' - it might show you what we're talking about. Can't promise anything, though. Though back to the weaponized nacelles... Please Cryptic? Pretty please?
  • I'd guesstimate we'll see dev blogs this week with a release of this week (with the Strike ship promo going away) or next week (to be the flagships for 'Delta Recruits'). It seems they have a new ship or promo as the next promo ready as soon as the last one is finished. I'm just really hoping that they shiny up the Galaxy…
  • Well, the Sovie did have a seriously long primary saucer array. So the tech/idea wasn't completely phased out by then. My only guess is regenerative phaser tech advanced enough where smaller, more compact, arrays had some serious advantage. There could be lots of technobabble reasons - though. A power conduit burnout…
  • You have to buy a ship for the parts, but - yes - if you own all 3 command Battlecruisers - you can mix and match the parts from all 3.
  • It'll most likely be command. In one of Smirk's last live streams, one of the devs commented 'The Galaxy would be a perfect ship for the command spec, wouldn't she?' I expect the eventual T6 Defiant will be pilot.
  • The normal galaxy doesn't have a hanger.... The Galaxy-X isn't a bad ship. The hanger, ensign uni, and 4 tac stations make it a very versatile and dangerous lady. The normal Galaxy has 2 (3 at T5U fleet), only a lt tac, no universal, and 3 ensign engineers which are absolutely beyond useless.
  • So 'showing real love' is ignoring the fact that an iconic ship has the worst boff layout in the game and is extremely inferior to dozens of ship classes that she directly replaced and we have on screen evidence that she was far better then. The changes to one boff power doesn't equate a ship being made useless. When fire…
  • The problem with that statement is - with a proper build a Galaxy can be a good ship at the hands of a good captain. But with the same build, same gear, and same captain, every other endgame cruiser in the game will do the same damned thing - but better.
  • The Cardassians are a Federation Protectorate race - the official Cardassian government doesn't get a full fleet anymore, only 'police vessels' - they rely on Starfleet for defense. The Breen turtled after the Dominion war - but they'll jump at any opportunity, so I expect to see them attack soon. The Kzenthi are a 'shadow…
  • Klingons are a more open, more aggressive warrior. When push comes to shove, the Federation - and Humans in particular, seem to be the more dangerous race. As to 'softer target' - the average human is a much less able fighter, but Earth just went through a serious fortification after ESD was seriously damaged. I doubt the…
  • Except in war time - the family quarters, the empty space, the luxuries and amenities - would be easily replaced with troop transportation. Barracks, weapons, fuel, supplies, heavy duty medical facilities. Heck, if they could modify the Galaxy saucer where it could safely land and and launch as needed - it would be an…
  • While I agree - those are the show's hero ships and should be better then they are, but not better then anything else. But in the game, the Enterprise isn't the 'hero'. As far as Star Trek Online is concerned - we are the hero ship. It isn't The Enterprise that people are relieved to see, it's us and our ship. So I don't…
  • I'd prefer a ltcom Sci or Uni to a tac. While faw3/spread3 is fun - a Galaxy is a heavily armed, very versatile ship. The versatility would better be served with a universal or science station. Though the ltcom station being uni/command would be AMAZING....
