What's your preferred away team?

My favorite setup so far has been the following:
Engineer x3 (mines, Phaser Turret I, Phaser Turret II, Summon Support Drones I)
Science x1 (the first heal, vascular regen, tricorder scan II, whatever)
The 4 Boffs all set up with weapons to AoE expose, while I use dual split beams.
I like it because it kills things fast and does so consistently and the plethora of things for the bad guys to go after makes it super safe. The character I do this with is also an engineer, adding another turret and support drones to the mix, as well as a FF Drone and some generators to amuse the mobs. The mines don't really do much, could easily be replaced with the shield recharge power.
I've also toyed around with the all science team, using lots of tricorder scans, everyone armed with split beams. Quite effective, but a bit more luck dependent than the engineer heavy crew. Sometimes it kills faster, sometimes slower. More vaporizes, but not as much of a laser light show.
Trying a tactical heavy team right now on another character. Finding it the least effective of the bunch, though still messing around with power choices.
