Just saw this myself. Neat idea for the viewscreen, and windows all around too!

Great design...
But boy all complains about bridges being to big... this is gigantic!!!!!
Must be the biggest bridge in the game now.

of they have been clever about it... by making th enter area the actual command area and teh rest is just a complete deck without walls.

Wanna bet, you can't see anything of the ships hull through te hwindows even though you should?

Probably not, though Tumerboy was mentioning something about his before, which was why he added the warp nacelles to that holodeck shuttlebay for the "Of Bajor" mission.

I see the series reward has been revealed too: http://www.startrekonline.com/node/2909

Not sure why it's leveled down so far, though...

It isn't. The screenshot was just taken with a lvl 24. It scales with you. Brandon has confirmed that.

Yep. I've got most of the space set, but the polaron beam array only works on shuttles, so it's no of no use to me on my main ship.

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

And the stats make me want to throw up.
So why exactly do we need any other cruiser ( or any other ship for that matter?) now?
Just buy all three, get 3 überpowers with a Cooldown reduction instead of increase and a Set Bonus (!!!) to compensate for the lost console stat modifiers even though the flag ships already have one more console then any other ship.
And have you looked at the BortaS subspace snare ability? Nullyfies every skilled maneuvering and unleashes her ungodly weapons powers...

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

I am pretty sure that they will price the new ships for at least 2000 C-points. The new bridge does look very cool and some of the stats do look nice..but my personal shopping/wishlist for the C-store has quite a few items already(TNG uniforms, DS9 bundle, Excelsior-refit), so I will most likely buy one of the new ships rather on a later date.

I am not sure what to think about the FE end reward, I guess I must try it first in action to make my mind about it.
Since the last FE mission of the "2800" will be set at least partly on the hull of DS9, I wonder if we can keep the spacesuit after the mission, that would be really cool but might not happen, though.

Your complaint is based on the false notion that all or even most players are min/maxers. They aren't

True, and I am not one of them.
But when you reach VA and sit down to think which ship would be the best choice for my intended role, it will always be the Odyssey/BortaS from now on. Except the min/maxers, for them it's all 3.
All the other ships don't matter anymore except for sentimental reasons.
The starcruiser has already been made obsolete by the baseline version and now the sovereign bites it as a ship of the line and it was already barely keeping up with the c-store ships which also look like a joke now.
