After all the negative towards Tanking, And I myself being one of the Whiners.
I decided to Just go for it and have fun. And so far have not been a hinderance to any STF I joined.
And at least on Infected Space, Its just cool to help get Generators to 10%, Sit above the Transformer and Fire at will. Pop em all together.
I run 3 toons, Wanted them all to play Different, Was bugging me I had all 3 in an Escort.
So now got a Tac in an Escort, Eng in a Cruiser, Klink Eng in a Karfi Carrier.

Engineer Carrer

Fleet Star Cruiser.

Fore: 3 Phaser Arrays, 1 DBB Phaser Array
Aft: 4 Phaser Arrays

Maco Def MX XII
Borg Engine
Maco Shield MK XII

Eng, Borg Uni, PDS Uni, 2 X Nuetronium Mk XI
Sci, Vent Theta Uni, Particle Gen Mk XI, 2 X Field Gens Mk XI
Tac, 2 X Phaser Relays MK XI


Tac: Tac Team, Fire at Will II
Eng: EPTW 1, AuxTSIField 1, EPTS 3, Eject WP 3
Eng: EPTW 1, RSP, EPTS 3
Sci: Pol Hull, Hazzard II
Sci: Tractor I

Doffs, 3 Tac Team Doffs (Global Tac CD)
1 Energy Weapons Officer, 1 Nurse

The point is to try and hold them still,
Use Evasive, Coat them in Warp Plasma and flip broadside, Or Vent Theta, Repeat.
I loved doing this in the early days then lost my way in a quest for more DPS! lol
Grounded my gear with the Defiant, And now back to having fun as a pure tank,
And doing the best DPS I could outta my favorite ship, the Star Cruiser.
But, I'm a tank first and foremost.

To me the Fleet Star Cruiser, with the Nomad Nacels and Hull. And whatever option raised the Nacells up. Looks Badass.
