Now, find your Klingon Bird of Prey victim and hit buffs in the following order. Attack Pattern Alpha III, Attack Pattern Omega III, Tactical Fleet II, Go Down Fighting III, Beam Overload III, Torpedo High Yield III, Tactical Team I. Then cut engine power to half, use subspace jumper (console), gravitic anchor (omega force 3pc bonus) (-50 defense rating), tractor beam I (removes current defense bonuses), and fire. Assuming you do it fast enough that they don't have time to pop a heal like reverse shield polarity, you will see that Klingon ships are not overpowered as the Bird of Prey Explodes in one volley. The only thing overpowered about the KFD is that energy drain carrier that drops all power levels to 0-15.

Note: Ensure that Beam Overload fires BEFORE Torpedo High Yield, or the torpedoes will do little damage.
While I too use GDF as part of prepping a Burst attack it may not be that helpful as at 100% hull it only gives about 1-2% buff to damage, maybe.

It may be better to save GDF for when you have lost some health and have no ready buffs to damage.
Or as some have learned don't heal hull if you don't need to and Burst with GDF then. I've seen some BoPs take a hit to less than 50% hull , save it that way with no heals (before it does it on its own) and then burst for devastating results.
