Gotta fix the horrible audio bugs, too. Was getting really loud and obnoxious "Bonnie Kin" audio while walking through DS9. And then a bunch of audio of a female character dying. DS9 was also apparently going to red alert alot, per the audio...
I heard rumors this is triggered by players who have found a bug and exploit that. But don't know if true.

Anyway, guys, read the new Dev blog.
Golden Times ahead for us Cruiser captains!!!!

Someone snapped this on the test server, it would appear the Avenger-class battlecruiser has Vengeance-like weapon pods: http://puu.sh/4Kr8U.jpg

Also, the ship would appear to have a dual-neck setup like the Odyssey-class, though the gap is vastly smaller than on that vessel: http://i57.servimg.com/u/f57/14/83/54/34/avenge10.jpg
The comms array thingy is a good news for all cruiser captains. I'm looking forward to testing it out. I am also looking forward to similar promised changes for science vessels.

However I'm not sure about this new Avenger class ship. With the Battle Cruiser label, I was kinda hoping it would have a Cmdr Tactical station rather than a Cmdr Engineering station. It cuts down on the ship's combat potential. With a turn rate of 9, it is going to be the fastest turning T5 cruiser but I am not sure the ship can swivel quickly enough to bring cannons to bear. Although I suppose it makes a good dual Aux2Bat candidate.

Although its final stats are to be determined, I'd imagine the base turn rate will probably be close to what is seen there, it can also apparently use a cloaking device and equip DHCs as well. With 5 forward and three aft confirmed weapon slots, I think it'll be pretty neat.

It'll also be nice to have a smaller cruiser again, since its size is meant to be close to that of the Excelsior-class.

Rather looking forward to this battlecruiser. Aside from the good stats, it's one of the better looking cryptic original designs going by the model on redshirt at the moment. Looks a bit like an compact armoured Odyssey.

Console sounds to be a bit useless. I can see the drones being destroyed within seconds of launching them.

I suspect I'll buy it when it's released. Wonder if it has it's own bridge.

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

I'm gonna predict it won't.. standard bridge as it's a Federation non-Flagship.

It has a min-maxer's wet dream stats for a cruiser (at least the fleet version), so it won't need any extra incentive to sell well.

We will see a lot of them flying around.

I will stay in my Sovereign for the time being, since I just like the design better and got it running at the best efficiency I can squeeze out of it.

Doing the last few upgrades available to me atm. Need a couple more XII tac consoles and possibly the Marion doff since I have the funds now.
After that, it's simply a waiting game until better Embassy/Mine consoles and warp cores become available to me.

I do wish we'll get a new bridge, even a generic one shared by all Fed ships. The ones we have now are so bland and overly large.

Nice. I would actually use that one... at least until they get me a Souvereign bridge.

That looks great, I hope it comes with a "small" option.

By the way, anyone here use opposite gender characters?
All of my characters are female. I'm sure not

I generally prefer a female avatar. Gear looks cooler on them.

Generally use same gender characters unless taking advantage of a skill set, like the Orion Female Science Officer.

I don't think that I role-play a female well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's not about roleplay... it's about looking at nice features while playing

The thing about female characters is how manu customization options they get. I weep at my male Romulan's lack of hairstyles.
