How do you figure out he knows nothing about how boff powers work?

Because he says he'd like to be able to use some higher level science powers on his escort? As I've already said, he doesn't say he expects to be able to use them, just that he'd like to. I'd like to use some higher level science powers on my Defiant retrofit too, but I know it's not going to happen.

Because he makes a comment in his first post saying 'unless someone can tell me how to use these powers, I'd like to know if I can get a refund'? Do you really think he was expecting someone to come along and say 'Well, you do it like this...' Anyone who has played the game for more than 3 or 4 levels can blatantly tell that isn't going to happen. I'm guessing the concept of sarcasm is lost on most people here.

And honestly, that post you are referring to where someone explained 'how clueless he is'... If it was directed at me, I'd find it insulting too. "Lt Cmdr skills... they are the ones with the 2 little filled circles and one empty one" like that little symbol isn't plastered to just about everywhere that mentions Lt Cmdr rank in the game. It read like the person that posted it wanted to treat the OP like he was 6 or so.

Yes, it is possible that the OP is just an idiot who doesn't understand anything, but come on guys, do you really think he is that stupid?

Also guys, 'superior' means it is better in his opinion. That doesn't necessarily reflect actual in game mechanics. If you ask me, I'd say the Defiant retrofit is superior to the other ships in the game, because that is the ship I enjoy flying the most. It might not be the ultimate ship for taking out others in PvP, and it might be a little squishy when it comes to taking massive damage, but it is still my favourite ship, and so in my opinion is far superior to the others.
