Watching it launch off phaser lances one after the other in 360? arc is super fun though.
I tried the Regeneration mode basically just to do it. I was never "forced" to deactivate tactical mode due to damage when running Starbase Alert. I pulled aggro on the flagship at the end and kept it, and he couldn't do jack to me. I miss the maneuverability of flying around the Prometheus Beta vector, but this thing tanks like a HEC.
Well, for one carry Weapons Batteries. It's got the extra device slot to carry them.
Two: it's set up to where in tac mode it crits every 5 shots or so from my experience. That's horrifying. Well, for the other guys anyway. I'm only running two Mrk XI Rare Phaser relays and I'm hitting 1200-1300 DPS per gun before APO/CRF/CSV II. I am very impressed with the ship. Though I end up in instances where I outdamage everyone and end up with all the aggro....
