1 sci is enough. With 2, you might not have enough team DPS.

So, I dumped it again in favor of BO I. Did I miss something (cause you're not the first person to say that FAW is awesome, so I figure I did something wrong somewhere)?.
I play all 3 officer types, and have done KA with all 3 classes. My engineer flies Excelsior, and uses BO. I found the same thing as you with FAW being meh. However, there have been recent changes made to FAW, and I think it is better now. I might try it out next time. I think this is one of the benefits of being able to have multiple bridge officers on your ship. You can swap them in/out depending on what mission you are doing.
