Well this ship might just be for you. This seems on the surface like any run of the mill sci ship, and boff wise it is. What differentiates it though is the stuff in the torpedo tubes, and what comes out the back of the ship. Plasma. Lots and lots of hawt sexy burning stuff. Plasma burns, overtime can accumulate very quickly because they stack, and not only this they are also tac boostable.
with 3 purple torp doffs you will be firing these out at a machine gun pace as well. (infact it's quite likely you'll have more torps than firing angle even in the intrepid and recon)
In the tests, I found that they can put on a decent sustained pressure. This boff layout with it should provide more pressure and system shutdowns.
Weapons Phaser Beam array (of course) 2 Plasma Torpedoes
Aft, 3 Plasma Mine Launchers.
Doffs. 2 purple torpedo officers, 2 Systems Engineers, 1 Aftershock
Power levels. 25 weapons, 50 Shields, 50 Engines, 75 Aux.
Cmdr: Viral Matrix 3, Sci Team 3/TSS3, TSS2, Tractor Beam1 Alternate: Vm3, TBR2, ST2, TSS1
Lt Cmdr: Grav Well 1, HE2, HE1/Polarize hull1
Lt Tac, Tac Team, Attack Pattern Delta1
Lt Eng. EPTS1 and 2
Ens Sci, Tractor Beam1
Ghosty, this build sounds like fun! Haven't played my Sci toon in over a year but I'm looking forward to it now. A few questions: Phaser or Plasma for Tac Consoles? What about the other consoles? Use the Ablative I assume? Is this build good for STFs, I heard the Borg have some resistance to plasma. I hope that's wrong. Many thanks!
