You can find a related thread here.

I have now four ships I want to mainly use in STO along with the future plan to get the Vesta package and/or the LRSV VA ship an regular C-store version for their consoles to throw on one ship. I want to know what to get the most out of each ship for. I'll give a mission profile and possible BOff abilities I will have on it using what I have and/or plan to put on.

There is a theory about the combining of weapon types on this ship. The reason is by-passing shields and wearing them down. I am also an Eng Captain so counting on my own heals to keep the ship going.

I am planning later this year to get the Vesta pack so I can field the Multi-Mission Strategic Explorer.

As you can tell from the link at the start, I also need advice on my skill build as I would like to seemlessly change between the ships without issue. I mainly do PvE solo as I play on a Toshiba Netbook and working to get a better computer.
Cruisers do not suck at DPS and Escorts are not Tanks. If you think this, you need to reread the definition of Tank.
