Joined Trill - Best Captain Type?
 
The title ought to say it all. I'm considering creating a new tactical cruiser/escort captain and trying to decide on the species/traits.

While the Joined Symbiote bonus is an interesting one to be sure, it seems like the shotgun of mini-bonuses leans much more heavily in the science direction than any other, and as such makes it of somewhat questionable valuable to anyone who does not use science ships. I use cruisers and sometimes escorts myself, so I'm wondering if I'd just be better off with the build I've used previously (Alien with Accurate, Elusive, Soldier and Peak Health).

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

I prefer my liberated borg, but joined trill is close second.

This is exactly what I built, a science Joined Trill has worked out brilliantly thus far :)

Stat wise for space.. yes.. throw in Warp Theorist and you're set..

All in all the traits matter very little... my main Eng Fed side and KDF side

Fed Ferengi w/ Warp Theorist & Techie
KDF Alien w/ Warp Theorist, Techie, Efficient, & Astrophysicist

The Ferengi slightly edges out the alien on the ground for DPS

For Space my Alien barely edges out my Ferengi.. but it could be due to I have an all Saurian "Efficient" boff setup.

That's actually kind of strange. The ground traits involved do not seem to have any real bearing on the DPS, at least not directly. Do they have the same stats/equipment?

But remember that Ferengi have required 'racial' traits that give a bonus to 'exploit' damage...

Ah! I thought that the Lobes only gave some help when doing business with EC's for some reason. Makes sense now.
