interesting procs like a shield heal, hull heal, or adding plasma damage to all energy weapons.
Could you tell me more about the Fleet Sci consoles? I finally might have something to spend all my fleet credits and dil on (been avoiding paying $5 for an FSM to buy a Fleet Armitage
Also, your suggestion sounds cool, esp. with the gimmicks you're talking about. I used to main SVs in my Engi main before I started running STFs (then I shamefully went full-escort).
But I'm sooo tempted by the Engi Vesta's look! Grrr, I wish they still sold ship skins so I could pick which I wanted.
I think I may like the Vesta more than my Armitage. Wow. I'm flying the engineer-ish version with all three special consoles.
What's the Engi console like? I heard it's like a Polarize Hull that reflects torps? Is that kind of ability too situational for PVE (I don't PVP). Does it reflect isometric charges or the Borg bullsh*t heavy torp?
