# 1 Odyssey +1 Healboat
03-24-2012, 03:10 PM
So this is what I currently fly:

Odyssey +1 Science Cruiser (+10 shields, +10 aux)

Tactical Bridge Offcer 1: FAW1. APD1
Science Bridge Officer 1: HE1
Science Bridge Officer 2: PH1, TSS2
Engineer Bridge Officer 1: EPtW1, ET2, ET3, ES3
Engineer Bridge Officer 2; EPtE1, AuxtSif1, EPtS3

Now my question is, have any other healboats found much of a difference by replacing the engineer in the uni slot with a science officer that had something along the lines of TS3?



(on a similar note, I've been playing around with console layouts and am on the fence on whether I should stick with the sci odd+1 or switch over to the eng odd+1)

How novel, using a cruiser, like a cruiser :p
I like it. The only thing I would do differently is this -

Com Eng - EP2W1, ET2, ET3, ES3
LtC Uni - EP2S1, EP2S2, Aux2Sif2

I find that the higher level, the better, when talking about your remote heals.

Also, remember the cooldowns on sci heals. HE takes longer than ET or Aux2Sif. Also, TSS doesn't last as long as Extends (but you can throw it around as often and it includes a small burst heal to start), so...

Edit: You could double up on HE and use TSS3, your Aux Power becomes a LOT more important. This setup would require you to drop an ET to maintain your EP2S chain. That makes the PH a burden, so drop it and throw in a Sci team for cleansing and burst shield healing. I believe that would also leave room for a TB1... thinking about it, I can see it working well on an Engineering toon (power levels).

I really like using the Uni LtC for a Sci BOFF and Uni Ens for an Eng BOFF:
Tac Lt:
BFAW 1, APD 1
Eng Comm:
EptS 1, AuxSIF 1, ET 3, ES 3
Eng Ens:
EptS 1
Sci Ltc:
ST 1, TSS 2, TSS 3
Sci Lt:
HE 1, HE 2

With some Maintenance Engineer DOFFs you have an ET 3 every 15 seconds as if you had two ETs so really all that you sacrifice by taking the Sci LtC is that you have an AuxSIF 1 instead of 2 and no RSP or EptW (usually what would go there) but you gain a TSS 3, a HE 2 and a ST 1, so I'd say the SCI LtC is the way to go.

If you do wish to keep with the Engineering LtC I would recommend dropping the EptS 3 as you should be survivable enough with two EptS 1 and also dropping the EptE 1 as its only effective use is running away something a ship of the Odyssey's size isn't really good at. Then you can have an AuxSIF 2, RSP 1, 2x EptS 1. Also if you can get some Maintenance Engineer DOFFs as I mentioned above you can replace the ET 2 with an EptW 2 for some more damage.

i remember dog fighting you in pvp in my defiant. was kinda easy and i know why now. you do know ur defence kinda sucks right? i mean i know your a tank but even with full power in engines and impulse with ageis im getting 62%. with out impulse i was in the 50's. i dont have elusive as a trait. tho i could count my win due to getting help on my build. yeah need eps console with using beam over load 3. still dont understand why......but now my dps never lacks. also the all 9 in sheild power im sure the last 3 points equal 1 extra sheild power point. least thats what im told by a fleet mate that tested it on tribble. same goes for wep power.

Unless you had a group of people with me no single defiant has ever killed me in this build. My over all armor to all is over 50% and with those buffs in the right order almost no one can get through. I am fairly certain you have me mistaken for someone else, unless you are thinking of my holo clone which would explain it.

On a sidenote, love the BO names.

Made me chuckle quite a bit.
