There’s been predictions about T6 flagships for months now, so the fact that they are finally arriving shouldn’t come as a total surprise. The only surprise for me is how soon it’s happening (this Thursday!), especially after I specifically mentioned it in my last post a week ago — it’s the one of the last things I actually look forward to seeing/buying!
Here is the official announcement.
Long time readers will know that I loved the old flagships: three of my main toons flew them — Kala flew the Odyssey, Gortusk flew the Bortas’qu, and R’Jal flew the Scimitar. Kala and Gortusk reluctantly changed ships to keep up with the times (both went with Command Battlecruisers and now fly the T6 Battlecruisers), but to this R’Jal stuck to his trusty Scimitar. Stats-wise the T6 Battlecruisers are pretty hard to beat, but I’m attracted to the huge, lumbering majesty of the flagships; I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the stats release tomorrow — hopefully they are at least competitive with the T6 Battlecruisers, or the CBC’s.
Funny. This is the first time I’m genuinely excited for STO in a long time!
