Sure it doesn't start out with any weapons, but it does start out with a Mantis, 2 Zoltan, and a human. Now, because humans are common and uninteresting, they get to stay put, and the other Zoltan gets to stay put too. But you send the other Zoltan in with the Mantis to do some really nice energy based kamikaze attacks while that awesome flak artillery charges. I can't tell you how many times I've won using the Fregatidae, it has to be my favorite ship.
Why does it get so much hate? Sure, the life expectancy of the crew isn't really a big strong suit, but the clone bay takes care of that.
I just started right now with the ship and on my first 2 jump i got the "Heavy Scatter II" and "Burst Laser III" lol i'm very lucky. Btw is this community still active? since most posts are created 2013, now it's 2016 december.
I'm also using "Captain's Edition", it really makes the game alot harder but also alot more fun and challenging. If you don't recognize the guns i said above, it might be guns from the mod.
Well, first of all, I personally don't like the Burst Laster mk III. It doesn't have that shock value(and effectiveness, of course) that most 4 energy weapons give. Don't know what the heavy scatter is, though. About the ship, I love the concept of the ship and do suicide boarding all the time. Just not with the fregatidae.
As for the community, I'd say that while it's a lot less active now, it's still alive-ish.
Also, necro. Smh.
