Odyssey & Bortas Review

Captain's Blog Stardate 89705.05

Happy Anniversary!!! Its been 2 years since STO was officially launched and as a nice present to everyone, you can obtain the new flagships for free. The Odyssey (Federation) and Bortas (KDF) are nice ships and worthy successors in the line of flagships. The cutscene for the Odyssey is very nice, and I think better than the Bortas.

By the way, both ships are slow... very slow, especially with their turn rate. Although they are massive in size so I guess that makes sense. I think the Bortas is a slightly better ship though. Its hull strength is a little stronger than the Odyssey (but not as good looking haha). I've been using the Odyssey more than the Bortas and I really like it.

Did you see the bridge of the Odyssey? Its kind of big but it looks pretty good. I haven't checked out the Bortas bridge yet so if you've seen it let me know what you think about it. The one thing that I don't like is that there aren't a lot of customization options. Probably in the future they'll add a C-Store version of these ships with additional abilities and a new style that'll add to the custom options.

Don't forget to leave your thoughts below. Take care!

I'm curious what consoles you would add to make it more maneuverable?
(Or maybe you'd have to dedicate so many slots to increase it's turnrate, etc, that it wouldn't be able to do what you wanted it to do-

The engineering console RCS Accelerator is good for turnrate. You can also boost power to engines and get consoles that increase engine power. You'll never have as good of a turnrate as escorts though.

I missed the even and I'm kicking myself for that because I would REALLLY like the Odyssey, even if I don't use it all the time, sometimes you just want to fly around, get beaten on by everyone while yawning and vaporizing them with your beam weapons!
I hope that they'll give the option to purchase soon (tm)
