Lot of rage on the official forums about the BOff arrangement on the D'Deridex. Basically, it's the seating set-up of the Galaxy, with a 5.5 turn rate.
But I really think it will be far more viable than the Galaxy, because of the battle cloak and the effects of the singularity. In fact, these Romulan ships seem to need piloting style outside of the existing boxes, and I think that's great. I'm really looking forward to playing these, and getting a different experience in the game.
