I'd have to say, my Vesta (with my sci) is ideal for CE. The Vesta consoles are a huge bonus against it.

The Fermion Field is great for healing shard damage and/or shields when the CE takes a particular dislike of me.

The Multidimensional Graviton Shield is fantastic, especially when the CE gets iritable toward the later part of the mission, for sending some nice damage right back at the CE.

The Quantum Focused Phaser isn't quite so great, but is still useful for smacking any Tholian ship that is being particuarly bothersome.

And the Quantum Focused Shield Bubble means I don't need to run off out of range of the shockwave - throw the shield up, zero damage taken, and can resume making the CE eat quantum torpeoes etc.

Add to that the Elite Scorpion fighters doing their thing and one has a very nice choice of abilities.

I've managed 1st place twice, 2nd place twice and don't recall how often I placed third.
