Even at minimum settings, my Engine power is at about 50+, so combat engines don't really do anything for me. I use the Borg engines right now for the other benefits. Even at minimum power, my speed is high enough to max out my defense bonus, and at higher speeds, I find I have to be extra careful that I don't close too fast so that I can release my Bio-Neural warhead (due to the minimum firing distance).

Extra speed is great though if you're delivering Tricobalts, as you can close to release range faster, and get out of the blast radius faster.

I run W50, S25, E25, A100. I used to run engines at 50 and weapons at 25, but the extra power in the weapons helps with the damage on the Bioneural's turret, and keeps shields lower.

edit: Had a close call and almost had to wipe my list. Had just escaped a dude (USS Antesignami), then the dude got me when my first officer popped up and dropped me from cloak. Luckily, I had already destroyed that guy in our first encounter (1st kill of the session, actually).

How to make this list (Rules):

1. The outcome must be the result of the first encounter in our respective ships.
2. I may not ambush you at your warp-in.
3. I must wipe this list if the IKS Valkyrja is destroyed in an engagement which meets the criteria in rule #1.
4. Similar to #2, if our first encounter is me warping into Kerrat, only to find myself in a blue cloud with a countdown timer, I will not wipe the list, so do not ask.
