To start thanks for the quick replies.

I would go with Tykens Rift 2, but be aware that the rift can be destroyed with AoE weapons currently. Don't know if thats a bug.

I've tested a similar setup not long ago with my sciscort and for PvE it will be enough to use level 2 of Subsystem Targeting together with Tykens Rift. This will leave the 1 Lt. Com. tactical for BO3 or High Yield. If you are planning to PvP you probably have to use a level 3 Subsystem Targeting.
I might as well have different tactical BOFFs one for PVE and one for PVP. What about Fire at Will 3? I wish they had a power like it that only fires on one target.

Why do this? In what way does it help?

Doesn't that just drain shields? Although I can see the draining shields advantage. I can always have both Tetryons and Polaron in my inventory and just switch them when needed especially with the new skill revamp.

Is the Breen energy drain power from the set any good compared to the Sci BOFF Drain Energy? Although I do prefer Regenerative Shield Array MK XI [REG]x2 with 2 EPTS chained so that would eliminate the Breen Energy Drain.
Would a Torpedo Launcher, a Dual Beam Bank and 2 Beam arrays in front and a Torpedo Launcher with 2 Beam Arrays in back be the best Beam setup?
