Currently the nerf pendulum is on photonic abilities. Stick and train for spacial anomalies: Tyken's Rift, Gravity Well etc. Also, you will find that as a Science toon, you have to be really careful on your skill point spread. Stick with only one type or class of abilities to be most effective. As for ships, go by play style. Ships like the Intrepid are small, quick and fire power can be focused more on the front of the ship. For the big ships, good old beam arrays and good shielding will allow a more sit back and support role. The above link has some nice builds. Just remember to tweak things to your preferred play style: cookie cutter builds make the player adapt not the other way around.
