Our Great Captain!

"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.


  1. Gratz Captain!

  2. Gratz, Captain! And yes you are blaspheming, the Defiant is a very popular ship, but at least they aren’t as ugly as the Tier 3 science vessels (dang flying turkey basters).

  3. So awesome. So awesome.

    I never really liked the Defiant. I was always more an Akira-class (Tier 3) kind of guy.

  4. I think the original Defiant class looked much better than that. I, too, am not a fan of how your ship looks 😛 But it’s not that bad, lol.

  5. Yeah, this isn’t exactly the Defiant because I played around with the customization options a little. I didn’t like how the original ship looked and tried to see if I could make it a little better by tweaking it a little. I just don’t like the fact it’s like a flat disc, I liked my last ship so much better 😦

  6. They should allow you to customize the ship using parts from lower tiers. That would allow for a lot of options that open up as you get higher tier ships.

    • I agree! That ship would look so much better with bigger nacelles.
