Really depends on your BOFF traits. The "best" setup is to use a set of Space BOFFs with the 'Efficient' trait to increase your ship power levels, then run a seperate set of four BOFFs for Ground missions.

The "Best" ground BOFF setup depends heavilly on what role your captain is going to take. For Example: if you're a Tac specialising in Grenades, then you'll want more shield stripping BOFF powers, so your ideal team will have more Science Officers in it. If you yourself are a Sci officer, then you'd be better served by stripping shields yourself and therefore you'll want more Tacs and Engineers to stack up damage from Photon Grenades or Quantum Mortars.

Generally though I've found that Tactical Officers are "optional", but having at least one Sci with a few healing abilities is a must. Engineers with higher-tier Fabrication abilities and a Pulsewave weapon are generally the best option for DPS, and they can take a Shield Recharge Power to keep you topped up in combat. The only notable exception I've found is the Photonic Tactical BOFF from the Ferengi Lobi Crystal store - that thing is a complete beast.

Personally, I usually run with one Melee Tac officer, Two Engineers and a Sci.

Weapons should always be Pulsewaves or Bat'leths. Armors either [Physical Augmentation Armor] or [Energy Harness Armor]. Shields are up to you, but I really like the [Personal Mobility Shield]. Oh, and always give them a Tribble and a Remodulator (apart from Melees, since Bat'leths don't need remodulating).

The setup looks good. I play the same with a melee tac and a buff, debuff tac. The only thing is that I would kick the Liberated Borg Eng. One of her traits is Efficient and is a space-skill. If you take her with you you would "waste" one ground-skill, which could be usefull. I recommend a Andorian for example, because they can be beasts in ground-combat.

my actual away team at the moment:

2x Maco Photonic Tactic Officers

1x Photonic Science Officer

1x 700 day Veteran Android

They usually can handle everything without me interupting them :D

The MACO Photonic Tactical is originally from the Lobi Store/Ferengi Lock Box, but can be found on the Exchange under the 'Reward' tab...

for my Away Team, I'm currently running...

Borg Science BO (Khitomar Reward)
Jem'Hadar Tactical BO (Facility 4028 Reward)
Starfleet Photonic Science BO (Referral/Winter Lock Box Reward)
MACO Photonic Tactical BO (Lobi Store/Exchange)

My Bridge Crew are all Purple Efficient Saurians...

Thanks to everyone that posted I'm sure there must be some good stuff in there.

But lets get to the really good stuff.

Its okay to say 'oh I have this set' or "yah I run all phazarons purps" but its another thing entirely to show people entirely what you are all about.

I hope the video show's anyone interested in making a quality away team how to do so and also how to employ them in actual combat situations.

Glad I could help!

I think the only obvious one missing is the Breen Tactical.

The Jem'Hadar is pretty handy with a melee weapon and melee skills as well. I have him outfitted with a personal mobility shield, mk XII Physical Augmentation Utility Armor, Nanopulse Edge Lirpa, and a stack of Ketrocel White.

You can still buy it on exchange.
