ok now i have time to be constructive. you want, no need 2 copies of EPtS1, the extra resist you get is a must have. use the universal ensign for that. 3 copies of tactical team wont save you, they wont even function, the global cooldown only allows 2 to be chained. EWP2, get rid of that. theres no reason not to have EWP3, its super common on the exchange. better yet ditch version 2 or 3 and get 1, still does the same speed debuff thing with slightly lower DOT, which will never amount to much anyway. your better off getting A2S3, you need more hull heals. attack pattern beta or delta would be a good choice for tactical powers, your science powers are good. the EPS and RCS consoles arent doing you any good. eps is only helpful for beam overload recovery, it doesn't help your general weapons power recharge faster after every shot. the RCS effect is less then a drop in the bucket. equip armor instead, your going to need it. also since TTS, A2S and HE are all aux based heals, your going to want to carry around aux batteries, and use them like candy. they will save your life.
LOL, reading your initial post, made me laugh.

Um now on to serious matters. Everything Dontdrunk wrote, I endorse, support, campaign for and would vote for.

I would also recommend you look at this very good and very helpful guide on setting up a cruiser:

However, I think don't drunk forgot to say is to ask a question: why are you flying the Odd?

I know, I know the ship says Tac oddys but honestly it's not an escort. It's not an attack ship. It's a support ship, even the devs have said so.

I know, you just spent money on it and you don't want to feel you've wasted it but if you really want to do a tac cruiser combo, you should look at the Excelsior. The Excelsior, when built right, works very well with escorts. To be frank, it's arguably the best ship for a Tac cruiser combo on the Fed side.

If you want to fly around in a cruiser I would strongly recommend you roll and engineer. Quite frankly since the introduction of the anniversary Odd, I have yet to see a tac or sci Odd that was impressive. The ships slow manuverability don't work well with either class.

Let me be clear, I'm not trying to be mean, put you down or lol at you. I'm just trying to offer some constructive criticism.
