I'm looking forward to eventually getting a Wells for my science character, but lately I've been having a lot of fun running a Peghqu' on my KDF science officer. It makes a wonderful science escort: pop out of cloak, lock the enemies down with Gravity Well, debuff their resists with Sensor Scan, then open up with an APO-powered scatter volley, and possibly follow up with a Disruptor Lotus. I've been outfitting it on the cheap for the most part - I use the mission-reward Hybrid Plasma Disruptor DHC's, full set of 4 on the front, I broke down and got 3 Fleet disruptor turrets, and I'm using MK XII purple deflectors, shields, and engines off the Exchange, which I grabbed for 50k to 75k each.

It can be fun to run "sub-par" stfs though. As long as its with a premade group that are all doing it that way.

Sub-par? I've done some STF's with it already...

What's sub-par? Is that some kind of Vulcan keekle excercise?

Yikes! Tough choice.
For sheer maneuverability, the Chell Grett gets high marks. Mine is fully Breen equipped as well which is a nice way to play it.
Style, good function phaser cannon blaster.. Mirror Patrol Escort wins there.
And for just plain Star Trek canon, you can never go wrong with an Excelsior variant. Mines getting upgraded to fleet tomorrow morning.
I have the Odyssey and Vesta packs both. Surprisingly, the Vesta Strategic can be a very nasty customer if you set it up with all three of the set consoles, and your favorite arms set up. I would be willing to bet there's any number of ways to to that successfully. But man, that is a technical ship to pilot in a fight!
Odysseys are like tanks. Big big tanks that can turn into two slightly smaller tanks. I just wish the cool down times for the destroyer and the chevron were not so long.

I have a hard time picking a favorite ship. I think, though, I'd have to say I'm really loving my new Wells. It's tougher, faster, and prettier than the Mirror DSSV I've been flying for the past 3-4 months.

I currently have the Armitage Heavy Escort Carrier and the Fleet Tactical Escort... which I love to fly. The last few days I've been torn with buying a Kumari for my Fed Captain or the Guramba for my KDF Captain... I just can't seem to get a good answer about either of those. I'm all cannons on the Fleet ship and I punch like a truck, but I'm still pretty squishy against Borg.

No worries about being squishy then as I am the one getting shot.

It would be nice to do some Romulan recruiting for the KDF side which could use some influx of starbase builders
