    I’m going for the D’Deridex, myself. Not only is it a TNG classic, but it also has a sweet tactical cruiser layout which, combined with the singularity powers, should make for very interesting gameplay.

    As for geekiness, I watched TNG when I was growing up, I started playing video games (starting with the Atari and NES) as soon as I could walk, and my older brother taught me to play D&D. I’ve always been a geek. I don’t watch current television and I don’t follow popular geek podcasts like Geek and Sundry. I don’t care if I’m the only person in the world who likes the things I like or if everyone likes them. I’m gonna keep pursuing my favorite hobbies regardless of what anyone else thinks of them, because I love them and that’s all that matters.

    As much as I give it flack for slow turn rate, being the DS9 fan I am I’d probably go for the ship that represented the Star Empire during Dominion War if I were to play Romulan. Give the D’deridex a EPtAux & Aux to Battery combo and you’ve got enough boff seating for a triple threat that’s good at Tactical, Engineering, and Science (assuming there’s no typo in the Dev Blog).

    I love the romulan ships. I will me an engineer flying a D’ridthau Warbird Battle Cruiser. I will not be a romulan but a reman,I think the remans are a great race. I think shows like the Big bang theory makes nerds look cool and having star trek stars like Will Wheaton being Sheldon’s enemy is funny.

    I have a good Idea for a new BOFF skill since there will be a new upcoming level cap. “Close Emergency Bulk Heads” also it is cannon and that is a always good I feel it was used allot after getting hit with phaser or a torpedo during battle in ENT. But it was used -before- battle in VOY Janeway said it in a early episode before battle. the idea of it being used before and after battle. Seem that that would open it up to flexibility as a engineering skill 🙂 Sometimes so silly skills that are made up get created in STO allot of people dont like that
