Settings of 100/50/25/25
Also, I have no Ensign slot as this is a BoP. Massive firepower with the cannons, almost always running off of Rapid fire, Beam overload adds a ton.
I left this as mostly a Fed side thread, but it works with Klink Raptors too.
Birds of Prey are a different story though... MUCH more interesting layouts are possible for STF's
(Grav well AND Eject Warp Plasma anyone???)
My only comment is with Rapid Fire/Scatter Volley 3 vs. Omega 3. You actually get higher weapon damage with Omega III and said cannon skills at level 2. I did some testing with this to confirm, and its actually quite a large difference in damage output from your weapons using the better attack pattern skill.
Its also why Bridge Officers with Scatter Volley 3 are worth almost nothing on the exchange now.
