upgraded my ship a bit, I've got few consoles doing missions at starbase 24, good place for consoles, and marked improvements in my ship's weapon performance, before it was a struggle to take down large Klingon ship, now it takes only few well aimed shots, bob's your uncle.
Although I have far to go before I can master controls an all the buttons, few weeks and I'll be there. BTW only today I realized i had alpha attack maneuver, what it does I still don't have a clue, well it suppose to give some boost to your weapons, if I am correct. Anyways, I'd like to see more ppl posting their ships, thus far only few of us braves posted. This helps a great deal to all newbs here to understand how game works and what is needed for a good ship to win battles.
