Its new shiny, and at least in the case of low tac slot beam boats the differences between going full plasma and just stacking lots of +plasma consoles for the plasma procs were nominal at best.

But the consoles are certainly worth the investment, regardless of what energy type you chose. That is where most of the boost comes from, at least in my testing.

The torps are nice. The experimental beam is over rated, but it is good.

Edit: I've been trying to save some for the release, but I hear in the new tholian rep there will be rewards that give bonuses for running high Aux power... that will certainly help a sci. Sorry, I'm putting my fingers in my ears and going "NANANANA!"

Edit: I found the best part of going plasma for sci was the romulan weapons 3pc set giving you the mini BO, as I tended to run low on tac slots and the mini bo doesn't share cooldown with beam abilites.
I once again match my character. Behold the power of PINK!
