Jem'Hadar Escort Carrier

The JHEC is often over shadowed by the other members of the Jem'Hadar family.

It's not a true escort like its little brother, and it's not a true carrier like its big brother.
It kinda fits somewhere in between and if anything, to me it screams flight deck cruiser.

With that in mind I started looking at cruisers and Aux2batt builds, particularly DDIS' Excelsior build.

Weapons

6 Beam array, 1 KCB

Boffs

TT1, APD1/APB1, FAW3, APO3
EPtS1, A2B1, DEM
EPtW1, A2B1
ET1, RSP1

HE1

Equipment

Borg/Omega engine
Borg/Omega deflector
Elite fleet shield

Hanger

Yellowstones/Scorpions

Consoles

Borg, Tackyo, Nukara, Leech (Mine Eng consoles)
0point, BIC (Embassy Sci consoles)
4 Energy consoles

Doffs

3 Tech doff, 1 Marion, 1 RSP doff, (1 Warp core debuff clear)


This build is far from perfect, there is the little problem of Aux2batt putting your aux power levels in the toilet for a lot of the time which will affect the cooldown on your hanger pets, aux batteries will help with that though.

Low aux also means that you are not getting much out of the the Nukara T4 passive and you'll only have 3 out of the 4 sub-systems over 75 all the time for an AMP core.

Also note that the JHEC does not get the bonus 10% defence that escorts normally get.
