Raptor build I've had great success with so far.

Emphasis is highest DPS with best survivability.

On my older Tac, I've had great success with this, after finishing it.

IDK how you can claim "survivability" with just the 1 Mono.

My Klink Tac looks a little like this:

It's enough to take most of the bite out.

What abilities did you focus your skill points into?

OK, but I take it you're displaying the wrong console? In your link, you've fitted 4 Plasma Projectile consoles, not plasma energy.

Also, why do you have 3 Tactical Team abilities? Added to the Engineering Team, the global cooldown will ensure that at least one of them will go unused.

Finally, if you are leaving the third Ens Tactical slot empty, you may want to pick up a Mirror Raptor instead, which replaces that with a more useful Ens Engineering slot.

didn't realize I put the wrong plasma on the tac slots... Nor did I realize I left the tac open.

As far as tac team, that's all that can really be used at an ens level worth using with a Cannon build. Fleet Qin over Mirror for higher HP, and console slot.

Which is why I would personally swap the tactical team II out for something else. I don't run a Raptor but for my standard Escort build (which I could adjust for a Raptor) I run the following tactical powers:

Commander Tact: Tactical Team 1, Cannon Rapid Fire 1, Cannon Rapid Fire II and Attack Pattern Omega III

Lieutenant Commander Tact: Tactical Team 1, Cannon Rapid Fire 1, Attack Pattern Omega 1

An alternative for Engineering team which shares a cool down with tactical team is Hazard Emitters.

I would set up the other Raptor stations to run the following:

Engineering Lieutenant: Emergency Power to Shields 1, Reverse Polarity to Shields 1 (or Emergency Power to Shields 2)

Science Lieutenant: Transfer Shield Strength 1 (Or Hazard Team 1) and Hazard Team 2

As for the Ensign Tactical, a Torpedo spread is good for clearing out those pesky pets.

I don't normally suggest builds but this build and similar ones have worked extremely well for me in the present.

^this. Maybe with the second CRF1 replaced with another torp skill, b/c of shared cooldown.

Then, remove most of the uni consoles and slot 3 neutronium alloys.

I often run mine with Polarise Hull 1 instead of TSS1, for added tractor immunity & kinetic resistance.

Slotting 3 neutronium would give massive demonising returns your better off slotting one and one monotanium tht way you maximise your heals and resistance boosts trust me try it

If you doing PVE you want to slot beta instead of omega

That's the thing, I have tried it.

These were my results:

So unless this massive diminishing doesn't show up in the displayed stats, it's really very minor. When regularly facing different enemies, the balance between the very few percentage-points of difference and the convenience factor was decided in favour of the last, for me.

I may be wrong here, and please, please point out any stuff I'm missing - I'm definitely not trying to be a nuisance here -, but I just don't see much evidence for these diminishing returns on armor consoles, in my tests...

They do share a cooldown but with three I can run rapid fire almost non-stop. As while running one of the rapid fire I the other one has a half cool down so when that cool's down I can run it and then the rapid fire II while it is cool down and then immediately after I have the other Rapid Fire I ready for use.

I don't use Polarise hull anymore on escorts etc, as Attack Pattern Omega gives you tractor beam immunity as well as the extra goodies to damage resistance and damage output boost. However if you don't have a high tactical BOFF slot (unlike the Raptor here) then Polarize hull is you're only other option.
