    Execellent show this week!
    I purchased my Arbiter-class Battlecruiser as soon as it was available. The Avenger is by far my favorite ship, and when Cryptic announced a T6 version, my head nearly exploded! I love the ship so far. It’s a little fragile, but I’m sure better piloting, completing the starship masteries, and getting the tougher fleet version will remedy this. Now I have a reason to bring back my VATA!
    P.S. – Congrats on the new mike Kenna! Your voice sounds great (and it’s not just the accent)!

    i think that it’s interesting that cryptic decided to make an entire pack of tier 6 battlecruisers, not only do we get updated versions of the federation and klingon battlecruisers, but now, for the first time, romulans have their own version as well. i am not interested in getting the KDF or rom ships but i am interested in the federation arbiter class. the original avenger class was my very first level 50 ship and so having an updated version of this ship brings back fond memories. i will say one thing about this new ship though. I don’t understand why they named it the Arbiter class. when they named the tier 6 Galaxy, they named it the Andromeda, which makes sense because that is the name of the nearest galaxy to our own. the name Arbiter just doesn’t sound like it fits with Avenger. they should have named it something else like maybe Protector, or better yet just named it after the famed captain Janeway of Voyager since the original Avenger and this new ship both resemble Voyager in some way.

        Actually its a Warbird, none of them really work exactly like the 3 types of the other races.

        It is also filled with Awesomesauce.

    Another good show as always crew. I purchased the Arbiter as soon as I could log in. I loved my T5U Avenger prior to its obsolescence, and a chance to own a more updated version was too good to pass up.

    Your review of the new ships, with a smattering of insight into positive directions to take a build, was nice to see.

    As for my personal opinion of the ship. The new visuals are great, especialy with the Iconian rep set. Some of my fleetmates kitbashed the old saucer on the new hull, but that just looks wierd to me. The console layout is nice. 4 tac consoles, an improved turn rate, and a decently rated shield and hull on a cruiser style ship is always welcome. If there is any criticism I can give on this ship would be the universal Lt Cmdr slot SHOULD be a Universal/Intel seat like in the Romulan Morrigu. Its bogus that the Lt Cmdr Tac slot was made the Intel slot. Other than that… solid ship.
    Now all I’m waiting on is a T6 Cardassian Galor and my STO life will be complete…

    Ugg… Another ship that I want but do not have the Zen to buy it.
    HERE CRYPTIC TAKE ALL MY MONEY!

  8. GavinRuneblade on January 30, 2019

    I haven’t gotten them yet, but I will pick them up once I can save some money and earn more dil for more zen. I have the old Avenger and love it so I’m sure I’ll love the new one. The new Mogai looks really flexible with its universal boff seat.

    The review was good, had plenty of detail and some great ideas on how to use the ships.

    Also, on the current featured episode, I also loved it and agree 5/5 here too. I personally have a bet going with a friend on the player being the other, the Delta Alliance being “the alliance” that took them down 200k years ago, and the Krenim betray (or trick) us and use the time ship to recreate their lost empire plus extra territory thus becoming the major plotline for season 11. Basically they pull off what Gaul failed to do for the Vaadwaur.

    Great show guys. I’ve been also really enjoying your new Youtube videos and been sharing them with my fleet. And its great that you guys also reply to comments there as well!

    I really think the the end of the story will be the start of the temporal war and feel that Captain Geko “crafting” ship that he teased ages ago, would be a temporal one as it would take alot to make one… let say a whole fleets worth.

    And i still see us making temporal weapons as our Nuke moment. Once we use it i think we will regret it.

    Hey guys. Great show. I like the way the three of you take turns explaining new things like ships.

    As far as the new Battlecrusiers…the stats and everything look great, but another flat aerodynamic design? it’s space, we don’t need aerodynamic ships. I miss the round saucer section of the iconic ships. I feel there is some cool designs they could do with those still. My Trek IMMERRRRRSIOOONN! 🙂

    We are totally going to regret helping the krenim, unless we do it the romulan way, build our own and knock the krenim back to the stone age.
    I cant wait to get my t6 warbird(s), iconic and “battlecruiser”, when the next ship sales occur.

    Wonderful show everyone.
