Last year's Chel Grett is definitely the stronger ship. Its beefier and can be turned into a torpedo boat, or beam armored escort, or heavy cannon fiend.

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.

Is the Plesh Brek any good? I was planning on getting one for my tac captain to mess around in.

Appreciate the info on the Breen ships.

Actually, I've all but stopped hitting the Winter Wonderland. I like it but most of my characters have the essentials (weapons, boots, scarf, jacket, epophs and accolades). On one of my alts, there were 12 fleet members online and only me and another player were in the Winter Wonderland. It would be more interesting if there was a fleet meetup there.

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

Ok, I'm crazy for doing this, but I'd like to set up a solo fleet on my Rommie character as a long-term project... Any of you have alts that are currently unfleeted who could assist me in registering it and then depart?

I'm aware of the irony in having to ask for help to establish an independent project.

I don't intend to have my alts which are currently in the TBBS fleet abandon it for my solo one, but I think it's only fair to say I'm not really getting time to focus on more than one character anyway, so if they are dead weight, feel free to kick them.

Well, it's your project, but may I ass what for?
Take a look at how far TrekBBS Armada has come since the very beginning of the fleet system.
It would be far more beneficial to utilize the resources we have struggled with the whole fleet to get instead of making it even more difficult for yourself to start over?
Putting more resources into the advanced Armada Base will net you higher rewards faster.

Because I want a project I feel I can contribute to as and when I like without worrying that I'm not pulling my weight. I'm also heavily into an RP vibe for this character that he is an independent spirit. Even if it takes a long time, it would add to that sense of "self-made man". Just unfortunate that I need to ask for help to start the fleet up.

Then don't think of it as asking for help. Pay your helpers a pittance, and take the RP stance of having hired mercenaries for a task.

Well, a pittance isn't mandatory, I'm sure I could chuck a few thousand dilithium at anyone willing to help (say 4-5k each?).

Except you can't transfer dilithium to other players directly. EC is the currency for that.

Not even via fleet bank?

Nope, the only way to do something like that is to tip a foundry authour with a pittance of dilithium or maybe PW allows you to gift someone zen outside of the game?

Ok would have to be EC then, figured that wouldn't be appealing unless I could manage a lot, but would 200k work?

Yeah, try finding some newbies to help you. For them 200k is a lot. For a vet 200k is a Single loot drop from an STF.
