My build is as follows, I believe in sharing builds with other Cruiser guys to build up a fanbase for Cruisers and show Cryptic that NO, we DON'T want to fly Escorts.

I'm a Tactical

Fore Weapons: 2 x Fleet Phaser DHC's Mark XII Damage x 3, 1 x Phaser Quad Cannons, 1 x Mark XI Quantum Torpedo Acc x 2

Shields: M.A.C.O - Mark XII - Maco is arguably the best cruiser shield, even without the rest of the set.

Deflector: Borg Mark XI

Engines: Borg Mark XI - I use Borg for the Autonomous Regeneration because of the hull buff which works well in my build and stacks my resistance as we as healing me. A Cruiser should always take advantage of its high hull.

Rear Weapons: 3 x Fleet Phaser Turrets Mark XII Damage x 3, 1 x Purple Plasma Torpedo Mark XI Acc x 2 (Plasma for any escorts that like to get up my backside - Slows them down nicely)

Engineering: AMS/Cloak (Depends on Situation) 2 x Nuetronium (My Bad XD) Mark XI Armour , Tachyokinetic Coverter

Science: Field Generator Mark XI, Borg Assimilated Console

Tactical: 3 x Phaser Relay Mark XI

That's the Elysium, now for my boffs

Lt Tac: Torpedo High Yield 1, Cannon Rapid Fire 1 (Switch between Spread and Scatter depending on situation, Support cruiser and DPS) - Scatter is Awesome for Annoying Adds and Fighters, Also the Hyper Plasma a lot of Escorts spam.

Ens Tac: Tactical Team 1

Com Eng: EM to Weapons 1, Aux to Damp 1, RSP II, Aux to Structual III

Lt Com Eng: Engineering Team 1, EM to Shields II, EM to Shields III (EM to Shields III can be switched for Extend Shields if acting as support cruiser)

Lt Sci: Sci Team 1, HE II

If you have any questions about this build or critiques, please feel free to post them here.
