Why so few realistic ships?

I've noticed this a lot recently. Almost all the ships on here are too powerful. 5000 torpedoes and 30 phaser arrays make these ships sound totally invincible. I like a ship which is at least has a chance of taking some damage now and then. Anyone else agree?

Yes, yes, very much. On Starbase Republic, we're the same class of station as Deep Space 9, except we don't have as many armaments. It would only take a handful of Birds of Prey to destroy the station.

It depends on the context of your RP. Some ships, mine for example, are "above board", mainly because of their background. However, that doesn't make my ship indestructable. Far from it, in fact. Just because a ship is heavily armed doesn't make it infallable...but I agree that going totally overboard is stupid. Half the point of having the ship you selected in the first place is its abilities. You should adapt your story to fit your ship, not visa versa.

The sims that really annoy me are the ones that have Ablative Armour and Trasphasic Torpedoes from Voyager, Slipstream propulsion, and either a Cloak or Holographic Masking System to boot. What actually is the point of being Tactical Officer on those ships? Three key-presses, and your enemy is destroyed. Takes all the fun out of it.

Actualy, yes. Transphasic torpedoes and transwarp drive really do annoy me, because at that point, there in no challenge in a battle.

I kept Discovery as simple as possible. Sure, it's overpowered and it's got quite a bit of weaponry, but it used to be a stronghold in the Dominion War. We don't use the weapons often (in fact, we've yet to use them)...and it's all standard stuff anyway like quantam and photon torpedoes and phaser arrays.

I just set up a Daedalus Class. 6 phasers, 5 torpedo tubes, and hull plating. There is an experimental shield system and her top speed is warp 7

I'm somewhat part of the whole super ship thing. The USS Interceptor on Starbase Republic is a beefed up Defiant-variant, but it doesn't have anything too special besides that everyone loves it and it kicks butt.

Also somewhat guilty of overpowered supership. Discovery's away ship, the USS Columbia, is a Steamrunner.

My ship, the Bacco, is just a standard Sovereign Type 2, basically the same as the Ent-E.

Meaning it will get the crap kicked out of it if it stays in battle too long

The Bacco is a fine ship, KBB.

My ship is Voyager... we're not an official RPG. :) But its fun anyway, and we don't have anything they didn't have. (not including the snazzies from Endgame, we're about season 4)
