1. DCs or DHCs with tet glider? I know DHCs are more energy efficient and therefore are more damaging, but since tet glider procs 100% every hit, are DCs better than DHCs since they fire more hits (twice as many shots, however each shot doing half the damage i think)?
Both cannons have the same firing cycle length, so tetryon glider shield drain should be the same for both, but DHC's have +10 critical severity by default.

I personally use Borg Deflector + Borg Console and Omega Impulse Engines Omega + Shield. The Omega Impulse engines are hyper-impulse based, so they will have the highest top speeds available when your captain is optimally spec'd with max warp core efficiency + potential, not to mention engine batteries. The Omega Shields have higher recharge levels (221+ on escorts) but also good shield capacity (5700 for escorts) -- basically a borg regenerative shield without the low-cap weakness, and the occasional speed boost proc.

I personally go with Antiproton for burst damage. Unlike procs which are confined to 1 check per firing cycle, every shot is checked for critical hits.

Thanks all in advance!
This was supposedly fixed in the most recent patch, but I haven't had time to confirm it personally.
