Plasma DOT's used to be non-stacking, and as the OP also mentioned, STF sets all have inherent plasma resists, thereby minimizing plasma's PVP effectiveness. However, S7 has brought a few new items into STO to boost plasma damage, so I'm testing plasma again on my Breen ship to determine its viability.
