I purchased a Fleet Armitage from a T5 fleet, looking forward to try out the U.S.S. Copernicus in the field.
I enjoyed flying the Ambassador class, but she wasn't really suited to my characters strength. He is just not a tank captain.
Could be interesting to fly her with an engineer. The Ambassador is what the Galaxy Class SHOULD have been. Copy and paste her abilities over to the Galaxy Class and make the Ambassador faster and more maneuverable with some reduction to hull.
Canon mentions it's maneuverability to make up for lack of offense.
I also thought of a great special ability for the Galaxy refit.
Give her a rapid fire photon torpedo launcher. During the fight she can unleash a photon barrage of 10 torps very rapidly, practically no cooldown (like seen on screen) instead of firing them off one at a time.
After a barrage she needs to reload the tube and can't use an torpedos for at least a full minute.
That would utilize the new ammo mechanic they have in game.
I think that would give the Galaxy some interesting tactical advantages and still keep it balanced.
What do you think?
