Driver Coil will make you go a bit quicker in sector space, but your maximum speed will eventually cap out at Warp 10 until you pickup Engines that can break that barrier (Like the
If you ever find yourself occasionally wanting to PVP you can always take a few points out of Shield Emitters and Driver Coil and stick them into Power Insulators. It's nice to have a little bit of a buffer to work with!
Bridge Officer Powers and equipment will make all the difference now. (I'm sure you've already discovered that a ship's energy weapons 'type' should always match its Tactical Consoles, and that BOFF powers like Hazard Emitters, EPTS and Tactical Team are the cornerstones of a good build!
