MVAM

the MVAM escort is one of the 5 tac console escorts. not only that, but it can separation to 3 parts and you can choose which you would like to control. the main advantage to this is the high turn rate you can get out of it, at the price of some hitpoints. on top of those 2 advantages, it can run a LTC level sci power, which you can do all sorts of interesting things with. i think this ship has renewed worth with its ability to slot anti cloaking measured with little sacrifice.

high partial gen

this focuses on more creative methods of dealing damage, but can leave light on heals. particle gens primarily buff the damage of the sci skills that deal any, and the powerful isometric charge console. your going to want high aux and tac buffs ready for when you have a good opertunity to use FBP, and ideally low aux with TBR so you dont push so much as deal damage.

anti cloaker

charged particle burst is supposed to be a shield striping skill with the added effect of decloaking anyone within 5 range of you. seeing as trying to shield strip is useless these days, and theres a faction full of battlecloakers, this skill has a new lease on life. you can spec into subspace decompilers to make the cloak disable last a bit longer. romulan ships tend to have a bit of trouble standing up in a strait fight, so if one successfully battlecloaks on you mid fight, and you can tag them with this, theres a pretty good chance they are hosed if you can keep up the pressure.

viral matrix

VM is a royal annoying thing to be hit with in the middle of a dog fight. it can immobilize at a critical moment more reliably then a tractor beam, stop weapons fire, and deny aux based heals or cloaking. its also another great anti cloaking counter measure. hit a person with it who's trying to cloak, and in less then 5 second they will decloak when their aux goes off line, guarantied. the aftershock doffs is nice too, and you have room on the active roster for one
