The Defiant with 1 Neutronium, and 1 HE for hull heals.


The Sovereign with 3 Neutroniums, HE 1, Aux to SIF 3, ET 3.

Obviously the Cruiser could also be tossing those heals to an allied Escort giving them highe effective hull.

I'm just trying to envision the game wondering if fighting a handful of cruisers that each have 200k hull and 50k shields per facing would even be remotely fun.

Wouldn't that just be turning Cruisers into the Borg?

What you're describing seems to be bringing PCs closer to NPCs.
