Engineer refit Defiant build
 
I have the best phasers on the ship I have been able to find, 2 dual heavies, the quad, and a quantum up front, 2 turrets and a beam array in the back. I'm trying to find if there is a better weapon combo, and what shields, gear and consoles people use for an engineer on an escourt. Any hints are apprecieated. Thanks

you have a 3 cannon shared cool down,
so, um, remember that.

Since you have heals, (eng cap skills) you can survive with a borg set or a borg/aegis combo nicely.

If I had an eng to fly a defiant i'd go series canon since i'd be survivable and healed by tm's.

fore:
1 quad can + 1 phaser beam array +1 photon/1 quantum
rear:
quantum+photon+phaser array.

and i'd just cruise and rapid fire in between torp deployment fore and aft changing targets and using the now awesome b-faw and get some 360 degree 100% acc de-spamming.

Sisko was eng before command, so you're ultra canon potential!

yayayayayayayayayay!

whats a b-faw? Does the dual torp set ups work well on an escort? I always thought the dps on that set up was low?

Beam - Fire at Will

As for the Dual Torp, I say it is personal preferance. I am not a fan but others do enjoy it.
