Tac/Sci Ship Combo
 
I have posted this in the Builds and Powers Section too (Didn't Know which was more appropriate)

Quite simple question really......Are Tac Captains viable in science ships?

Answers on a postcard please? :D

Very viable, and great fun.

i run a tac captain in an orb weaver ( vesta on tues) and its a very effective combination :)

Tactical initiative is basically a useless skill on most escorts since they mostly have a Commander and Lt. Comm/Lt. tac boff slots. But on a science ship or cruiser that skill becomes very powerful. Also with some of the DOFFs (like the tac team conn officer) having a Tactically focused sci ship is very possible.

So with that in mind...What sort of build are people looking at for a Tac in a Vesta? Not really had any experience with my Tac in a sci ship, but the Vesta looks too good a ship to miss! :D

well , thats hard to say , since its manoeuvrable enough that normal science builds and escort builds are both viable , it all depends upon your play style

Low aux + as many particle gen consoles as possible + TBR + tac buffs.

unless he uses the vesta , with its AUX cannons :p in which case having a high aux would be more beneficial

You can only mount 1 single Aux cannon per ship, which makes it a somewhat useless gimmick IMHO, as you are building a ship around 1 slot of 6, rather than building around the Tac captains inherent strengths, the advantages of sensor analysis, subsytems targetting and the ability to mount DHC + use of sci boff powers that are extemely destructive with low or no-aux.

since when did that change ? last i heard branflakes had stated that you could equip multiple aux cannons
