So, an update.
I started out with the Tactical Retrofit, but changed to the Multi Vector Advanced Escort (MVAE)
Weapons: (MkX Borg or MkXII Borg)
4x Antipolaron Dual Heavy Cannon
1x Quantum Torpedo
2x Antipolaron Beam Array
MACO MkX Shield, MACO MkXII Deflector, Borg Engines
I determined that Beam Arrays were a better fit to my playstyle than turrets in terms of maximizing my DPS.
Consoles: (All MkXI Rare)
Sci: Emitter Array, Field Generator, Biofunction
Eng: Electroceramic, Field Emitter
Tac: Assimilated Module, APMR, APMR, ZPQC
Lt. Eng: EPtS 1, RSP 1
St. Sci: Pol. Hull 1, HE 2, Repulsors 1
En. Tac: Torp Spread 1
Lt. Com Tac: Tac Team 1, Torp Spread 2
Com. Tac: Tac Team 1, Scatter Volley 1, Scatter Volley 2, AP Omega 3
I found that Repulsors are MUCH better for STFs than Gravity Well 1. It requires some careful flying, but if you can control your ship, you can buy your teammates a lot of extra time to take down a Nanite Transformer in Infected or if someone blows a Cube early in Cure, you can push a wave of Raptors far enough away to give yourself some extra time to defend the Kang.
