I don't really obsess over builds, though I prefer to keep within certain bounds of immersion.

For instance; Feds use Phaser/Quantum, Klingons use Disruptor/Photon, and my Romulans will use Disruptor/Plasma.

As a rule I refuse to use mines. I also won't use cannons on any Fed ship that isn't a Defiant, a Defiant-variant, or lacks cannon point (Armitage has built-in cannons in the model so it gets a pass, for instance). <- This right here is my biggest self-gimp.

I do make an effort to outfit my ships in quality gear and consoles otherwise to attempt to mitigate the self-gimping. It's the least I can do to make sure my sub-par build isn't wholly toothless in PvE. But I have fun, and that's what matters.
