My internet plays up and I get DC'd for 30 seconds at best. I come back, and they've let SEVEN, yes, SEVEN probes through in 30 secs. How can an engi in a (at the time) badly built Mobius, USING TETRYON, be the only firepower on the team?

Luckily, it seems that the 1 hour ban from a STF when you leave wasn't being applied, so I left and joined a team who knew what they were doing.

Never again.

As cool as subsystem targeting is, as well as all the science abilities, science ships really need more firepower. And letting a vesta equip dual cannons isn't the answer cryptic...
I have the dual cannons on my vesta. I also have a single MkXII (fleet) phaser array fitted aft to facilitate sub-system targetting. It is, admittedly, not terribly powerful since my Aux is at 125 at the cost of some weaponpower, but it does still do the job I intended for it.
