Hi, I am new player and I am looking for improvements for my Adv. Escort. I am looking for build strong for both PvP and STF. Build is based on Tetryon Glider [actually each shoot do additional 61 damage to all shields]. My character is Tactical Officer.

Front:
Tetryon dual cannon mk XII [purple BORG]
Tetryon dual cannon mk XII [purple BORG]
Tetryon dual beam array mk XII [purple BORG]
Photon Torpedo Luncher mk XII [purple BORG]

Rear:
Tetryon Turret mk XII [purple BORG]
Tetryon Turret mk XII [purple BORG]
Tetryon Turret mk XII [purple BORG]

Equipment:
Engines OMEGA XI
Deflector OMEGA XI
Shield BORG

Tactical consoles:
3x Tetryon (+26%)
1x Borg Assimilated Module

Science Consoles:
1x Field (something) [+18% max shield capacity]
2x Flow capacitors [+26 each, needed for tetryon glider]

Eng. Consoles:
2x +3.5 Weapons power settings


Bridge Officers Skills:

Attack Pattern Omega III [excellent against tractor beams, both in STF and PvP)
Beam Overload III [for alpha strikes]
Cannon: Scatter Volley I [bind to space button]
Tactical Team I

Attack Pattern Omega I
Cannon: Scatter Volley I [bind to space button]
Tactical Team I

Emergency Power to shields II
Emergency power to shields I

Hazard Emitters II
Transfer Shield Strength I

Transfer Shield Strength I


General combat Power Settings:
Weapons 75 [115 with all bonuses]
Shields 75 [~90 with all bonuses]
Engines 25 [48% with all bonuses]
Aux 25 [48% with all bonuses]



My main problem are classic escorts [3x Dual Heavies builds - I am not using dual heavies because of Tetryon glider], cruisers, and science are usually very weak opponents [even if they somehow tank me, they still need support to kill me] but FE/Retrofit Defiants are really difficult to kill [main problem - very strong Alpha strikes]. STFs are actually relatively easy, I am able to tank and kill regular cube in 1vs1 and I don't expect more. THX for any help.
