This is, strategically speaking, an important move. Force the Borg to rethink leaving them out in the open. I know the hive is going to hate that idea.
fireclouds are rubbish in battle - they fight like women :P

lower mass? they already have only 120kt.... how much lower can it get?

the only thing that should be changed are the stupid nonsense ships in between. just make them stupid little stingers. 80kt 5torp darts or so....

I sure hope it was just a typo, and he really meant that FC's are too EASY to Kill and require lots of Protection. NOBODY could really think that the FC can fight on its own, beyound the scout class, and Probe ships.

There are a fair number of ships that can take out a FC, only they cost more than a FC and takes more fuel to get to the FC. If you look at it from an economic standpoint it starts to add up to a different outcome. Anything that can do this job, economically speaking, can't defeat a FC on it's own or limps away damaged. Or maybe that's what a well balanced ship offers.

LCC, Illwind, Deth Specula, Nebula, Skye Fire, Emerald, SuperStar Frigate, Superstar Carrier, Patriots are all ships cheaper or the equal costs, and lets not forget the tech 1 Cygnus class ship can also destroy the FCC all on its OWN. PLEASE do not fight with your FCC's. If you want to fight with your FCC's, make sure I am your oppenent, all the free PBP's will be put to good use. Oh and this is just quick list of ships.

Well, if he does fight with his FCCs, take a hint from Miha...
Arm ships specifically designed to capture those FCCs and
then clone those FCCs like there is no tomorrow.

be quiet about that, worked hard with Miha, doing all sorts of sim's, so he had the right T-Rex's, for SSD capture. I hate running those kind of Sim's.
I only have 3 working Brain Cells.
