Our Great Captain!

March 4, 2010

"One of the advantages of being Captain is being able to ask for advice without necessarily having to take it.” -- James T. Kirk

I finally got promoted to Captain last night, and am currently zipping through space in my shiny new Tactical Escort. No offense to anyone who likes the designs of the Tier 4 escort ships, but I think they’re absolutely hideous. Like, gee golly, talk about having an incentive to get to the next rank fast. Even my fiddling around with the customization options from the default Defiant-class did nothing to make my ship look less like a giant metal cockroach (uh oh, is that blasphemy? I just found out that this starship class is apparently quite popular among Trekkies.) Too bad this doesn’t mean I would be just as hardy and impossible to kill though.

A screenshot of my new ship. Quick, kill it before it darts under the nearest refrigerator!

This baby is loaded up with three sets of heavy dual cannons and a torpedo launcher up front, and two turrets aft for maximum firepower. As you can see from the photo above, the new ship’s official name is the U.S.S. Reef, though in my mind I’ll always refer to it as the U.S.S. Foxface.
