Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Personally I'd say the only ships you should fly in STO are escorts. I used to fly cruisers and even managed to get good damage out of them, but after PvPing for I realised that no matter how good the build is, a cruiser will always be a distant second to an escort.

Sadly when you build a cruiser in such a way that it gets close to escort damage, it becomes quite squishy in comparison to one.

I've now dropped the cruiser on all my alts and now solely fly escorts (the tankier ones like the patrol escort, heavy escort carrier, the Breen ship and the temporal destroyer).
