patrol escort, fleet patrol escort, fleet escort/mirror qin, retrofit somraw, retrofit scourge, fleet somraw

this is a sturdy simple escort with a desirable station setup that it shares with the fleet patrol and fleet escort. this is proboly the best place to start out at when learning an escort

4 DHC, 3 turrets

TT1, CSV1, APO1, APO3
TT1, APD1, CRF2

EPtS1, RSP1
EPtS1

TSS1, HE2

station power long form here

you can cycle EPtS1 here easily, and you also have the life saveing RSP to fall back on when your shields are beat down. another option in place of RSP is AtS1, a small hull heal and resist you can use every 15 seconds.

equipment

borg deflector
borg engine
maco shield

consoles

2 turn, 1 neutronium

borg, field projector

4 energy type consoles



advanced escort, fleet patrol escort/fleet scourge

the advanced escort is a little trickier to use like the defient with only its 2 engineering stations. but it can have 2 sci based heals, and something more interesting for its 3rd sci power.

4 DHC, 3 turrets

TT1, CSV1, APO1, APO3
TT1, APD1, CRF2

EPtS1, EPtS2
TSS1, TBR1
HE1



equipment

borg deflector
borg engine
maco shield

consoles

1 turn, borg

3 partial generators

4 energy type consoles

tractor beam repulsers, or TBR, is a skill that can deal kinetic damage directly to an opponents hull wile also pushing him around. fully tac buffed, and if particle generators is speced enough on the skill tree along with several particle consoles, you will deal thousands of damage per pulse. te damage can also be approximately doubled from there when you use all the tac captain buffs at once.


doffs

evasive maneuver cooldown reducing conn doffs, shield distribution doffs


CSV's damage is actually just slightly lower then CRF's at level 1, and it can be an extreamly useful ability too at killing spam or dealing full damage to more then 1 opponent in its fireing arc. CRF3 is for your main spike.

the 2 APO are your get out of hold free card, they let you shrug of anything from a tractor beam to warp plasma, and increase your speed greatly. wile those 2 are cooling down, APD will be usable, this is a great defensive skill that increases your defense, or the defense of an ally if you use it on them.
