Does the Breen cruiser get any of the cruiser powers? I haven't even logged onto any character with one. If so, it could be the best free cruiser in the game, especially for feds/rommies.
Unfortunately, the Chel Grett is classed as a Destroyer and not a cruiser so it does not get cruiser commands. However it is clear by now that Cryptic is adding unique abilities to each type of ship.
Carriers got carrier abilities and promoting fighters.
Cruisers got command abilities.
Romulan Warbirds got singularity core abilities.
Raiders got a flanking attack damage bonus.
Science Vessels are rumored to be getting a secondary deflector slot.
I am pretty sure Destroyers like the Breen Chel Grett, Naussican Garumba, Naussican Scourge, KDF Temporal ship, and the KDF Veteran Reward ship will be getting Destroyer-specific abilities soon. My guess is that Destroyers will get a frontal assault damage bonus.
