Excelsior advice
 
I just bought the Excelsior for my tac and eng toons, and I'm wondering if I should go for cannon/turrets, or for beam boat build.


Also, can I get a recommendation for consoles? I haven't found a build yet w/ the console layouts.

Mucho gracias :)

You bought an old ship :O. This is a sign of the rapture.

3 beams, 1 torp. Front ant back. 3 borg parts. 1 Cap X3 shield.

You wasted your money on a dated ship. There's no real good console layout you can use with that thing. So good luck with that.

As far as I know, I don't think you can equip cannons on it. I believe the galaxy-X is the cannon equipped cruiser. I use an excelsior for my engineer, but never bothered to try equipping cannons on it. I just assumed I couldn't.

My console layout
tac: Disruptor induction coil x2, Warhead Yield chamber
Eng: SIF generator, EPS flow regulator, Field generator, Neutronium alloy
Sci: Halon system, borg console.

Weapons:
Fore: dual disruptor beam x 2, disruptor beam x1, Quantum torp
Aft: Disruptor beam x 3, Quantum torp

actually, all ships can equip cannons (except shuttles), it's only escorts and the Galaxy-X that can equip the dual cannons, along with dual heavy cannons

You can put single cannons and turrets on it

But no DHC or DC

Single cannons? Does anyone actually use those?

I use:

3 phaser beam arrays and one quantum torp on each side

Consoles:

Eng: 4x field emitter
Sci: borg console, bio-function monitor
Tac: 3x phaser thingy

Boffs:

Tac: tactical team 1, high yield torpedo 2, beam fire at will 3
Sci: science team 1, hazard emitters 2
Eng: not sure on the top of my head, the commander skill is either extend shields 3 or directed energy modulation 3, depending on the situation

May not be the most powerful setup, but at least i could hold out against 15 vishap frigates in the mine field daily :D

4 Field Emitters. Are you insane?
