...I'm not sure why I have the EPtA in there, honestly. I thought it might help get Aux back if needed, but it's never available, I'm considering changing it to an ET1 or ???)...

Well guys, you were right. I've been using the A2B build I listed back in post 44 for about a month, and I've got it working splendidly. It turns out my issues with the CDs was just a matter of learning the timing on when to press my keybind buttons. It took a little practice and as DDIS says, "some attention is still needed." But it's all smooth like buttah, now.

I also took his advice and put ET1 in that third ensign slot. It's not always available, clashing w/my TT1, but if I ever do need more hull heal, I can adjust my cycle timing to get it online, and use it.

Gratitudes RedRicky! Thanks to your thread, my Tac Excel can now pound out 10-12k DPS in ESTFs. It's very satisfying.
