You forget that the majority of Cruisers DO NOT use Polarized Hull and Hazzard Emitters because you need Science Team to reinforce shields, because Emergency Shields was nerfed.

And there are no Engineering Abilities that negates Tractor Beams like PH and Omega, or cleanse like Hazzard Emitters.

So unless you're going to add these abilities to Engineering, I think you should give us Cruiser Captains a break. Else it's another reason to fly only Escorts.
What? Are you joking? Why would any tier 5 cruiser care at all about a plasma fire? When you have over 50k hp, plasma fires are a joke more than anything, and most cruisers have a high enough passive hull regen that plasma does nothing. Even those 600 per proc fires I occasionally get from crit torps are negligible in damage.

If you're really having that much trouble, put on electroceramics and monotanium. Problem solved. As for not running HE? What? Why? Why run sci team when you can just hit EPtS + TSS and give no craps? And what do tractor beams have to do with plasma fires? And why would a cruiser care about tractor beams?

Let me put it simply:
Cruisers are bloody tanks. They have enough HP and shields to take the borg and not care. That's one reason NOT to fly escorts.

I do not understand you sir.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!
