Duty officers are: 2 purple conn officer tac team reduction + 3 damage control doffs.
Bridge officers are all human (leadership trait).

I know for a fact this build gives you over 100% defense bonus, with well over 6k dps pretty consistently.

Edit: With this build, you can pretty much tank donatra, the queen diamond, elite tac cube as long as you don't let the heavy plasma torp hit you. You don't even need to worry about that since the AoE scatter volley will take care of that for you. Hit brace for impact whenever you see the torp spread buff on the borg.
Heck, you can even make that build better. Reducing Shield Performance to 6 ranks gives a 0/-1/0/0 to your power levels, boosting Warp Core Potential gives a +2/+2/+3/+3, so if you do both you get a net +2/+1/+3/+3 with 1500 extra skill points left over for anywhere you care to put them.
