Also, that Tac/Sci Cm/LtC BOP, is able to run dual Eng Lts for some pretty nice survival skills, when combined with the 2 lower slots of the LtC Sci.
Finally.. The most devastating ship Ive flown was a 4x DBB BOP using Shockwave - EM - FAW3 - APBeta1 - TBR3 - and full Tac buffs.. FAW is nasty enough by itself, but when combined with 7-8k TBR3 pulses = Ouch-ouch-ouch (TBR3 alone can kill an Escort or SV straight through shields, if theyre unbuffed)
This cannot be done in a MVA
First off, damn that sounds painful.
And that's a fair point, I hadn't considered a science commander, tactical lieutenant commander arrangement just assuming it would be less viable than the tac commander. So awesome, there's still a niche that only the BoP can fill, at least until the Federation are given a Nova science vessel with a LtC Tac spot.
Would this mean that the Defiant-R is the biggest insult to the KDF to date?
