Notes in orange:


My First build, is my Tactical/Khyzon Escort:

(I am using the Skill planner to show Boff powers)

For Weapons I'm going with as follows:

Fore: Plasma Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XI [CrtD] [Dmg]x2, Plasma Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XI [Acc]x2 [Dmg], Plasma Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XI [CrtD]x2 [CrtH], Plasma Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XI [CrtD]x2 [Dmg], Plasma Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XI [CrtH] [Dmg]x2 *
Aft: Kinetic Cutting Beam, Experimental Romulan Plasma Beam Array

I'd get rid of the plasma. Most people are likely using STF shields still. Phased Polarons are pretty inexpensive and a solid choice for PVP as are Phasers/Pols/etc. *Unless you want to try for a full rommie plasma build with embassy consoles like you say below. That could work. If you plan on using the Andorian phaser weapons, then go phaser so your consoles boost it. Mk XI is plenty if you can't afford XII. Try for 1 ACC on your DHC and 2 on your turrets. This opens up a huge debate which I don't want to get into, but I think you'd do well with [ACC] [CRTH]x2 or even [ACC] [CRTD] [CRTH] and I'd stay away from [DMG].

Deflector: Omega Force Tachyon Deflector Mk XII
Engines: Hyper Impulse Engine Mk XII [Full] [Spd] [Turn]
Shield: Omega Force Shield Array Mk XII

Try for 2-Piece Borg and Maco Shield. Still a solid choice. If you have access to fleet gear you can go that way too. Most people use the 2 piece Omega for the glider with tet weapons.

Engineering Consoles: Assimilated Module, Ablative Hull Mk XI

Trade the ablative for a Neutronium. XI Blue is fine. XI purp is good too.**

Science Consoles:Flow Capaciter Mk X[-th][Pla]x2, Particle Generator Mk X Mk X[-th][Pla], Zero Point Energy conduit***
Tactical Consoles:Plasma Infuser Mk XI x4****

Last I heard, flow caps and particle gens are not effecting plasma proc. Put some sort of shield console in there such as an emitter or field gen. Embassy shield emitter with ShH or HuH would do well. If you go tet or pol, you can put a flow cap in there as well. You could put 2 hull consoles in eng and put your 2 universals in the sci slots along with a shield console and something else that makes sense with your final decision on build.

* I'm considering trying to work towards a full 5x of Romulan Plasma DHC [Acc]x2 From the Reputation Store.

I would be curious to see this in action.

**Some times I switch between the Ablative Hull and the Tetraburnium Armor also VR Mk XI

If you want to use a TyA or TyB hull armor i'd pair it with a Monotanium. There's a lot of mine spam going around.

***I Don't currently have access to Mk XI or Mk XII Embassy consoles and I know I need 3 Flow Capacitors.

****I don't have the funds to equip this with MK XII Purple variants yet.

Not a huge deal for consoles. The grade of weapon matters more than the grade of weapon console. i.e. XII purple weapon with XI purple console is better damage than XI purple weapon with XII Purple console the last time tested it.
