There’s no shortage of starship classes within the fleet. It seems that almost every mission has the perfect vehicle to achieve it. Operations that necessitate tactical ability can look to the nimble firepower of the Defiant class. Long forays into the depths of uncharted space are ideal for the massive explorers of the Federation- the Galaxy and Odyssey classes. And, of course, once those tactical aims have been achieved, or those planets have been explored, science/medical ships are needed, and that niche is filled by the Olympic class medical cruiser, or the Nova class science surveyor.
    Of course, these are just the barest descriptions of the hundreds of mandates nd tens of thousands of operations that the Federation contends with on a daily basis, but it seems like every niche is filled with an appropriate type of ship, with the ASDB working hard to fill in whatever gaps may exist. With that said, every style of command is different, and befits a different mission.
    This poll of the week asks you to consider your character’s particular style, their strengths and their weaknesses to answer this question: “Given the opportunity to choose, which type of starship would your character choose to command?” Are they more of a fighter, befitting a posting to a combat vessel like the Defiant class? Would they thrive as the CO of a deep space explorer, like the Galaxy class? Or would they fit more into a support role- say, a medical frigate or even a starbase? Perhaps they don’t fit into any of the above? Whatever you decide, give us your vote, and let us know your reasoning in the comments section below!

Valoru likes piloting small, nimble ships, so a Saber or Defiant would be nice. Although his body is a martial machine, he would prefer a bit more versatility in the Saber. Or, can we just get him a Rhode Island retrofitted with pew pew instead of sciency stuffs? :)

German's dream is to one day be in command of a science ship. One of his majors in Xenobiology and Zephyr on Discord mentioned the Darwin-A. Kind of a tongue-in cheek reference since he enjoys researching species and other forms of life.

Probably something similar to the Horizon class, honestly. Though I will admit, the Blackwell is also tempting.

I can see Tasha going one of two ways. Either a state of the art ship, like the Odyssey Class, or she would go for an older vessel that is constantly in need of maintenance and fine tuning, like an older Excelsior Class.

Aria is a bit in love with the Intrepid class, so many firsts, not too big, versatile enough to get lots of things done, seems like you can hold it together with bailing wire...

Hannibal likes the tactical side of things, so a Defiant or an uprated Miranda Class would suit him just fine....

Esbrun would probably go for a high-tech long range research vessel like a Luna class.
