For the rest of this month, I focus on building science ships and employing them (in typical dramatic fashion) to dominate STF missions.
The key to science ships is flexibility. You're not going to rely solely on science to get the job done, but if you have the idea that a science ship is a sort of special warfare light cruiser... then you're going to discover a lot of untapped potential using them as fast attack craft. They don't deal impressive damage, but they can produce decent DPS, conduct effective riot control, and have about twice the tactical mobility of a cruiser.
I didn't mention anything about tanking... that's because with the science vessel shield bonus it's actually very easy to tank them if you know what you're doing.
