Retrofit or Regular Phaser Beam Arrays?
Hi, folks!

Did a rerun episode last week and I've been sitting on the rewards - namely, retrofit phaser beam arrays versus regular phaser beam arrays.

Long story short, which will give me the better bang for my buck? I like the aesthetics of a blue phaser, but I'ma lso uncertain as to whether or not it'll actually give me the appropriate punch I'll need on my ships.

Also, I'd like to know what modifier combo would probably be the best. For ref I fly both escorts and cruisers (AC, Excel-R, Ody), and am a tac officer, with the elusive and accurate traits.

The specific items I have to choose from are:

Phaser Beam Array Mk XI [Dmg]x2
Phaser Beam Array Mk XI [CrtD]x2
Retrofit Forward Phaser Bank Mk XI [CrtH] [Dmg]
Retrofit Aft Phaser Bank Mk XI [CrtH] [Dmg]

Thanks for any help!

Replace em, they are great for awhile but they soon become outclassed.

Phasers with Accuracy on them would be much preferred.

And they'll never compete with the Mk XII Borg ones.

Go for the Retrofit as neither of them are good for combat but at least with the retrofits you can set up a ship like TOS and have a bit of fun.
