Classes, roles and ships
#7
Some very interesting points here - love it!

I do think that carriers are clearly something that goes against my original statement, as Tac proves every time he's in one!

But for the others, again I still think that if a science captain can boost damage with Doffs to be close to a tac captain, a tac captain can use doffs to also boost damage, making the difference between the two greater again.

And a science captain in a cruiser then being able to tank.............is a science captain doing the role of an Engineer. Also, the cruiser doesn't turn as fast so console space is wasted in upping that skill so that the deflector can be pointed at the targets.

I'm still not saying that people shouldn't do it, and that they can't do it well, nor that it can give some really cool ability mixes - but that it won't be as good as the class/ship matching for the pure roles.

**EDIT**

And the discussion started around someone asking in chat what next level ship they should be looking at - and if someone has to ask that question and has no idea why the other ships are or aren't an option, then I think that they need to go with the safer option of the ship for their class or they'll face a steep learning curve.
