    Finally got my fleet excel, the Illustrious II. Happy as heck with it too. Only issue was the bridge: I would have loved it if it came with Sulu's bridge module, but alas, no, and all the existing free bridges were way too huge for it; I ended up buying the Nomad bridge bundle. Still way too wide, but at least not the size of the sistine chapel without being the craptastic starter bridge.

    These things matter, ya know? Smile

    Anyway, as you were.

    CONGRATS! I've had one for a while, now, and LOVE it! I currently run a beam boat with all antiproton beam arrays but have experimented with several layouts including a mixture of energy and kinetic. Have tried cannons, dual cannons, turrets and dual beam banks. The Excel can handle just about any combo you wish to use. Fed side, IMO, just about the best cruiser, perhaps best ship all around, in the game. I know what you mean about the bridge. I, too, wish they'd offer Sulu's bridge variant. I just run one of the Galaxy bridge pack variants. It's too big but I couldn't find anything else I really liked. Maybe they'll offer what we want sometime later this year as part of the new season.

    Aye! But, as I recall, he developed more respect for it with Sulu in the center seat. Maybe by then they'd worked out some of the bugs heheheheh... still... like him I feel that NOTHING can ever really replace the old Connie. But the Excel comes closest for me.

    Whatever happened to the chairs that the arm rest become warp drive seat belts? And further more why would one need a seat belt in space? Now on a shuttle craft they should put five point harnesses in those things they crash them constantly.

    nah, for shuttles they just need that insta-fill crash foam from Demolition Man, the stuff that turns your vehicle into a canolli

    Hey all...

    So I've been thinking, and since I've just done both a ship swap, and not going back to my Noble class, plus several Boff swaps, that I should write a post about some epic fleet action that irrevocably cripples my old ship and martyrs or retires those officers, arriving with my broken crew only to discover the recovered hull of the Excel class USS Thunderer being towed into dock at Serenity Station, and falling in love with it immediately. Any fleet procedures for getting certified for RP and clearing a post to that effect, guidance on setting and general fleet tradition for these things, and having me and the crew arrive at the station, etc?

    Just having an interest in joining our RP group certifies you! I'll go ahead and take care of the paperwork. I'm excited about reading your story!

    cool! What's the best adversary in our current RP timeline to be ambushed by?

    The two big RPs that are running is "Steel River" And "Badlands". In Steel river the adversaries are the River people who exist only in Steel River. I don't follow badlands but I'm sure if you take a look into that RP it would be easy to find out.

    Last I checked (granted, a while ago, thank you real life) it was a True Way group that was the villains in that story.


    I think the rp's are set in STO's timeline, so feel free to use any villains really. I've got something brewing for the Sentinel when Steel River is over that involves alot of Gorns.

    True way works. That way I can beat up by some Cardassians AND get boarded by the Jem.

    And with Serenity Station located near the Badlands, it makes even better sense.
