The other day I finally finished up my Risa dailies to earn my first free tier 6 ship in the game. From the picture, I thought it looked a little goofy, to be honest, but once I flew it around for real, I came to appreciate its beauty and alien-ness. It’s certainly different from the standard Starfleet ship design and has kind of a sleek, organic flow to it.
I probably won’t be using it other than in my admiralty campaign, but it’s just nice to have. When I got it, a notice informed me that I would have access to this ship across my entire account, something that made me think for a second…
So I went to the C-store and looked up the old Atrox carrier that I bought years ago, and sure enough, it was unlocked account-wide. I know it’s silly, but I really didn’t realize this until now. In the span of one night, I attained two more ships for my fleet.
As much as I’ve liked the Rain Bunny’s heavy carrier escort, it doesn’t hold up in design compared to the Atrox. I just love this sleek, exotic-looking beauty. So I switched all of my stuff over, including a wing of Peregine fighters.
It’s a bit of a change — the Atrox handles like a slug compared to the escort, but on the upside I get to launch two full wings of fighters (12) verses just one wing (6) in the old ship. I also couldn’t bring over my torpedo point defense system which I really loved in the escort, but to take the sting out of it, the Atrox has two more device slots.
I’ll evaluate between the two and see, but right now it’s good to be back into the role of a full carrier captain.
