Hi all. I'm new here, but I'm quite open, so I'll cut right to it.

Least favorite to fight against: Scout. Unless you have a ship with similar speed or faster, you're going to get bombed. It's the whole point of the ship in the first place  Tongue It might not directly kill you, but whatever follows it up probably will.

Least favorite to fight as: Dreadnought. Too big and bulky, too slow, and the fighters get smoked by any sort of projectile. (favorite trick: Fight as Andro vs. Dread. Idiots send out swarms of fighters, just bubble em!  Grin)

Welcome to the forums, NECRO-99!  I'm sure you'll fit right in with all of us Star Control 2 geeks!   Grin

Least favourite ship to pilot:  Umgah Drone...  do I need to say anymore?  Slow and useless.  Painful to pilot.

Least favourite ship to fight against: Utwig Jugger... damn that cursed shield!

You know, that's one thing I've always hated about the Dreadnoughts. Launching fighters is the best part of using those ships (smelling pretty colors is the best game) but anyone with half a brain can make it very costly to launch fighters unless you're incredibly careful about it and you're a dead-eye with the fusion bolts.

It's basically a Pyrrhic victory ship for me, in the sense that it suffers from attrition way too easily from ships like the Guardian, the Cruiser, the Drone, the Marauder, etc...
