Played Hive Onslaught on elite for the 1st time. The group I was with we ended up unable to finish it. We kept getting one shotted between the Plasma Bolt and the Plasma Lance. I think we get the picture that the borg are 'superior' but using the nuke option is a little excessive imo.

I will say that I noted the Plasma Energy Bolt seems to have a fast reload time.. Seemed faster than the Unimatrix in the Borg Sector alerts.

[Combat (Self)] Vessel Two of Two Unimatrix 01 deals 644417 (949517) Kinetic Damage to you with Plasma Energy Bolt Explosion.

[Combat (Self)] Vessel Two of Two Unimatrix 01 deals 188045 (291296) Plasma Damage to you with Plasma Lance.

[Combat (Self)] Vessel Two of Two Unimatrix 01 deals 165921 (273899) Plasma Damage to you with Plasma Lance.

would be nice if my Graviton beam could do some damage like that..lol

And please (for the love of God) get rid of the stupid respawn penalty. It serves no purpose except to make the players more frustrated.

Be aware that just like regular torpedoes and the Phaser Lance, the Unimatrix ships' Plasma Bolt and Plasma Lance fire in 90 degree cones centered around their fore and aft ends. Thus, if you stay on its "broadside" side, it can not fire its heaviest weapons at you.

D'Vak has always been a Starfleet officer ever since they introduced Battlegroup Omega where he is stationed on the Victory and serves as a liason with the Klingon fleet.

Thanks. You'd be surprised at how many Trek fans fail to notice that "anti-positronic" means "electronic". ^_~

I got the inspiration from the DOFF mission "Calibrate Photon Particle Emitters", when I realized that the phrase could be used to mean "adjust the lights".

Borg weapons have 360 degrees firing arc now, so that doesn't work anymore (might be different for the lance). The only way is to keep moving and maintain the defense bonus if I'm not mistaken. And cross your fingers some of the torp spread/heavy plasma will miss or AoE destroyed.
STO is the BEST game ever and the players absolutely LOVE it.

The regular torpedoes and Plasma Beams do fire 360 degrees, but the Lance and the giant targetable Plasma Bolts fire within the 90 degree arc (i.e. not broadside). Plasma Bolts, like Tricobalt and Bio-Neural warheads, are capable of tracking targets that move outside of their mothership's firing cone after they have been launched, and can acquire new targets if they lose their lock on the original one.

I believe that the 90 degree arc is with respect to the center of the Unimatrix ship rather than its fore/aft endpoints. Just like how we only see our weapons firing from the middle of our own ships' saucers, I think that all weapons essentially fire from the ship's center. This makes the programming much simpler, since you don't have to assign X,Y,Z coordinates for each and every weapon for every ship.
