Tachyon V.A.T.A vs Crystalline Entity
 
I want to buy the Avenger Battle Cruiser.

But the problem is, I tend to switch BOFFs depending on the action I'm engaged in. CCE is no exception, and on my Odyssey, I have a BOFF that runs Tachyon Beam, Energy Syphon, and Tyken's Rift. I would potentially lose a slot for a Science BOFF to favour a less universal loadout, but I have one question before I buy.

Does the Tachyon V.A.T.A. debuff the Crystalline Entity's "Crystallise" buff?

Doesn't seem like it, since the entity doesn't have shields. I think the most efficient way to use VATA against the entity is to stay in shield modulation most of the time, switch the active cruiser command to Weapon Efficiency when VATA comes out of cooldown, fire VATA, then go back to shield modulation ASAP.

Agreed - the Quantum projectiles do some nice damage to it.

Just tested it, fired three salvos of VATAs and the Tachyon Beams didn't debuff the CE.
