    It might be off topic for most people here, but I do get more of a window into the Genari society just from the lore in each of these ship pages.

    I think if I ever get that far, sure a devastator cruiser would be great. What about the firestorm cruiser? (I'd like to compare/contrast)

    I've been working on more ship cards, sounds good, I'll post the Firestorm Variants:
    The base version, TYPE I
    TYPE II (A more defensive variant)
    TYPE III (A more maneuverable variant)

    ooh that green one looks gothic. The firestorm seems superior to the devastator.

    The bigger ships don't seem to have that much more marines than the smaller ones.

    I can see people who get ranked up enough to get a cruiser going for the Devastator, because its cheaper (especially the 7k type), and only some holding off for the more powerful versions. The margin from light cruiser to cruiser seems pretty high in XP.

    True, the bigger ships are limited still in pods, so they can't just overwhelm an opponent with them. On to the next tier of ships, the Heavy Cruisers and that aren't listed on the shipyard yet.
    The Great Wing and the Starfire, both which are essentially Battleships if it wasn't for the Nova. The Great Wing is more about beam weapons, while the Starfire is more about missile weapons.
    -Great Wing Type II enhances the engine and the scanners.
    -Starfire Type II enhances weapons range
    -Starfire Type III dramatically improves power output/maneuverablity

    I REALLY like the Starfire!!!! That thing looks incredible. From the front, it reminds me a bit of the Scimitar Romulan ship in Star Trek Nemesis.

    Nice, now we get to see more of the sheer variety of ships that was touted in the previews. Ships are my thing. When is it going to be updated in the shipyard?

    There's definitely less of a divide between the Experience required for the Cruisers and Heavy Cruisers. In some cases, only 1500 Experience. So I think some of the Cruisers might get passed over for the Heavy Cruisers.

    Indeed its all up on shipyard now.
    The Cruisers/Heavy Cruisers for Genari are pretty close in stats, but Heavy Cruisers will be harder to get not just because of XP but of production runs.

    Here's some Light Cruisers -- which are essentially tougher Destroyers.

    Started calculating some stuff...
    Genari ship XP required ranges
    Corvettes approx. 200-400
    Frigates 750-1500
    Destroyers 1800-3500
    Light Cruisers 3700-5200
    Cruisers 6200-9800
    Heavy Cruisers 11000-13500
    Battleships 18900-21000
    Drednought 30000

    According to Lesiak above, the XP ranges of everything is pretty well spread out by class. If you play regularly, I wonder how long it would take to get to the mid-range ships. A week? A month? A whole season? Seems like everything Light Cruiser and above are durable and could play a big role through to the end.

    I'd compare the starting ships (corvettes) like the tier 1 creatures in Heroes of Might and Magic, with the battleships and dreadnoughts being the dragons & titans of Heroes.
    Starfire III = Green Dragon lol

    I can see myself getting to the Light Cruiser stage, and not exceeding that Captain's skill that would allow me to get it (the warship commander one).
