For a Star Cruiser:
- 100 Weapons, 25 Shields, 25 Engines, 50 Aux.
8 Beam Arrays, or 2x DBB + 2x BA, 4x Beam Array
Lt Tac: FAW 1, Attack Pattern Beta 1 (swap for Target Engines for PvP)
Ens Sci: Transfer Shields 1
Lt Sci: Transfer Shields 1, Hazards 2
LtC Eng: EPtS 1, Aux to SIF 1, EngTeam 3
Cmdr Eng: EPtS 1, EngTeam 2, Aux to SIF 2, Extend 3 (or swap for Extend 2 and Aux to SIF 3)
It's definitely a wannabe Assault Cruiser build, and I can't stress that you should go with an AC over an SC if you want to any sort of DPS.
This not always true when dealing with the Borg.
If you're gonna fight the Borg a lot then load up on hull heals and armor since the cubes will drop your shields in no time and all your awesome shield heals will do nothing for you. Also tractor resists are important when fighting the Borg. As for the rest of the NPCs I agree.
