Could someone post a good build for what and escort should be in terms of weapons, consoles and shields?
As an escort you will be at the top of the target first list. So as people have mentioned, look into powers that give resistances. Wait before decloaking while you pick a suitable target and power up your buffs. Let the other side show their hand so to speak.
You are one of the few ships that can cloak FED side and make that work for you by de-cloaking on a target that is engaged with someone else, striking hard, and then leave the battle area quickly to re-cloak unless you have a good team that can keep you healed.
The tac and escort sections of the fourms are loaded with great threads on builds and powers. (And since you cloak, sneak into the Klingon sections to see how we do it.)
