I have recently realised, that no civilization has both the Catapult Trireme and the Fire Galley. I also realised... That I am not really good at water maps, but that I have been praticing at it a bit. mostly, whenever I play it, I just go with a Tool or Bronze age rush, what is weird because I am normally a defensive player, but then again, based on my limited experience, if you cant get control of the seas right away, you will probably never get it.

So, on your opinions, which ship is best: The Fire Galley of the Catapult Trireme? On paper, it seems as if the Fire Galley is meant for naval domination and the Catapult Trireme for bombarding your enemy shore. But again, I dont have much experience with then.

It's basically what you've said. Cat Trireme is good for island maps when you need to attack their shores. Fire Galley is good for water control since they're good at sinking Triremes/War Galleys and these are the most common units you'll see in sea battles.

Fire Galleys are great in small scale combat, but whenever the naval battles start involving sufficiently large stacks they're mostly seen bumping into each other only to score a couple of strikes at the enemy. In those situations catapult triremes with Engineering may very well be more useful as a support ship.
