S7 and a New Build
 
I'm thinking of speccing into this, given the new placate powers and bonus ship weapons training meaning I can take more science traits and be more generalistic.

What do you think?

Without your set of BO skils it is hard to judge. For example counter measures seems like waste.

I'm assuming this is for a Tac, right?

There's an interesting little tidbit in this thread I noticed while meandering aimlessly that claims that three points in Threat Control and two in Plating give more flat resistance than simply speccing fully into Plating. Worth considering!

As for the build itself, I quite like the idea and the execution would be great to see. I might take out the points in projectiles and try to redline some of the more typical Tac trees though; projectiles have very high base damages on their own and don't benefit as much from speccing as energy weapons, in my experience.

Problem with threat is aggro, its very much a cruiser build but if you switch ship types you end up with a Escort that is really going to draw aggro.

In PvP is a different matter because the only aggro its going to pull is from unshackled pets so you can invest on it.

I find if you're a powerful enough tac that any extra aggro you draw from Threat control isn't going to matter much. Hell, as of now with no points in threat control, I still draw tons of aggro. A little more isn't going to change much.

I'm guessing that's because the vast majority of cruiser players in PVE don't know how to run a cruiser or have PVP focused skills and just don't care. As a threat control cruiser myself, I can always tell when escorts are sneaking some threat control in for resists, and I really wish they wouldn't.
