I get that being a tactical scim, it isn't going to have the endurance of an engi scim, but with higher hull and shield modifiers, shouldn't it at least take as many hits as my other cruisers? At least with my mirror sovereign my shields went from blue, to yellow to red, actually giving me time to react with emergency power to shields or transfer shield strength. With the scimitar it's just BAM! Warp core breech.
First off we need your build to be able to advise you
Second don't use the three console set
Third you need tot use armor on this ship
Fourth and most importantly this is not a fed cruiser it doesn't have a commander engineering BOFF which means no it will not take as many hits as a fed cruiser it's because it has a high hull that it suffer sometimes squishy performance
Post your build and let's see
