I tried a few builds with it and the best use I could find for it was as an Excalibur stand in. Since I was never a fan of the Excalibur in the first place, I've already stopped using it for anything besides running Doff missions.
I agree. I've always been an Escort captain because I simply hate the flying bricks. That said, this is fun for playing something like a cruiser but with a better turn rate. I have also experimented with Single/Dual canons/turrets but the best seems to be Beems and Torps. The Missles really have little effect on a target with even minimal shielding. The best I can say is that the onboard Mail/Bank/Exchange/Duty Officers is a very nice addition and I'd like to see that on all ships. Unfortunately I see myself getting bored very quickly and changing back to my Defiant or Veranus.
