captain rank escort
 
I'm looking for advice on an escort build. i'm ranked captain for now and it's time I figure out what I\m doing. If someone could throw some advice my way on various setups, it'd be great. I am using dual heavies in the front, but what are the best types? thanks in advance.

Lazy lazy lazy, the Escort build thread is on this very page.

I know your Captain, but this thread will give the basics of an Escort.

lol, I actually read that thread earlier, so i'm not THAT lazy. The problem is that the vast majority of equipment they describe isn't even close to being available to my lvl. I'll just keep experimenting

Set's aren't nessecary to make a good escort, and the Jem'Hadarr set is available at low levels

The only Consoles in that thread you don't have access to are the Field Generator and the Assimilated Module.

Everything else is available. By looking at what is used at end game you can work out what will work for you now.

There really is not that big of a difference between Captain and Admiral when it comes to ship design and build.

if you insist on a "set, to the jem harad series and get the JH set. then you can opt for polaron, though i'm not certain the bonus is working. as far as equipment, you want the power console for your weapon type. if youa re using phaser cannon it's relays for you. escorts use cannons though some like a DBB to help them "get on target" some swear by 4x DHCs, personally i don't feel it I like the torp forward. best advice i can give is write down the BOFF slots, then go from there.

for consoles you definitely want polyduranium armor. consider the merits of the plasma manifold for weapon power bump. remember you have the 125 cap
you said a lot of the equipment isn't available but there SHOULD be an analog at the mk viii level except the borg/STF stuff

I highly recommend the JH set at your level. I particularly liked the engine and used it well after I reached vice admiral and had long since replaced the rest of the set with better stuff. You really won't need to replace the JH engine until you get access to MACO or Borg retro gear.

As for weapons, I'm partial to the all cannon and turret build and I like the anti-proton weapons better than anything else I've used.
