# 353 sci healer / crowd control
01-02-2013, 02:39 AM
With all the escorts and DPS cruisers running these times, a group could use a good sci-healer. In my opinion, best healer ships are sci ships which have also more than 1x LT engineer. So that would fit the advanced research science vessel retrofit (Nebula). However, if u have the money, the wells timeship (or klingon version) is a better choice because it has more shields, turnrate and speed.

Front weapons: 3x chroniton torpedo
aft weapons: 1x chroniton mine, 1x [acc]x3 beam array, transphasic cluster or chroniton torp
If you wanna do more damage instead of crowd control, you can also equip trannies in front, and trannie mines or those ferengi mines on back.

deflector: MACO / AEGIS / Advanced Positron Deflector Array Mk XII [Grav] [Ins] [ENG] [HullR]
engine: AEGIS / Advanced Fleet Hyper-Impulse Engines Mk XII [Turn]x3 [Spd]
shield: MACO / fleet advanced or elite resilient resA

Consoles:
main consoles are your sci-healing consoles: emitter arrays. Equip 4 of them. Fill engineer with 1 a 2 SIF generators. Fill remaining engineer and tac positions with consoles of choice like:
Console - Universal - Assimilated Module (more crit, hull repair, gravity)
Console - Tachyokinetic Converter (more crit, turnrate,gravity)
Console - Universal - Theta Radiation Vents (more crowd control and spam kill)
Console - Tactical - Automated Defense Turret (protect yourself from tric mines and slow torps)
Console - Universal - Tipler Cylinder (extra self heal for timeship)

note: 2 of the emitter arrays can be "upgraded" by using following embassy fleet consoles:
Console - Science - Emitter Array Mk X [HuH] [-Th]
Console - Science - Emitter Array Mk X [ShH] [-Th]

Boff layout timeship:
LTCMDR: EptS1, ES1, AtoS2
ENS: EptA1

CMDR: PH1, HE2, ST3, PSW3
LT: TB1, TSS2
LT: TB1, SS1


Boff layout nebula:
LT: TT1, APD1
LTCMDR: EptS1, ES1, AtoS2
LT: EptA1, ES1

CMDR: HE1, TSS2, ST3, PSW3
ENS: PH1


power settings: 25/60/40/75 (timeship) 25/60/25/90 (nebula)

A good build comes with good doffs: (all purple, commonly obtainable with colonization missions)
2x damage control engineer to have always EptS and EptA active
2x development lab scientists to have 2 copies of science team 3
1x projectile weapons officer to increase crowd controll with the chroniton torps.

My keybind file (based on the spacebar bind) which uses the F-buttons to target and heal teammates can be found at http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...&postcount=197
