I am a point and click mouse players - don't use keybinds - mouse only

I have lots of Fed ships but can't really settle on one for my new Fed Tac

This is what I have already tried at T5 on the Fed side(Tac/Sci/Eng):

Excel-R
Oddy 3 pack
MVAM-R
Nebula-R
Fleet Nebula
Defiant-R
Fleet Defiant
Sov
Star Crusier
Patrol Escort
Intrepid-R

i think thats all the T5's I have.

not interested in the Carrier.

looking at Fleet Excel - but it has 3 Eng Boffs

Best fed ship for a Tactical PvEr? Fleet Patrol Escort, or Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit. Or the Chel'Gret.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!

Could you specify what is wrong with all the ships listed? Maybe then somebody can provide a more accurate suggestion on what to get.

P.s I fly the Defiant-R and there is only a minor flaw, the eng tac. everything else is just perfect on that ship.

It might be just me being bored.

I think I just want a ship That puts out High DPS, has high hull surivablity and is decent at sci and is decent at turning and healing.

The Fleet Excel would fit that role I think - if it has another LT tac Boff station - i am just put off by the 3 Eng - but all the other stats look great.

The MVAM is the most effective PvE ship. The Lt Com sci slot offers so many options on the little escort.

Funny I have flown the regular free MVAM on another tac and its a supper fast ship - moving too fast some times for my point and click play style.

The real funny thing is that I bought the Adv MVAM in the last sale but have yet to try it out. The Current tac I am lvling just hit 46 so I will take it out first with this one.

I have so many ships It become a bog down - especially given that I spend 75% doffing.

Perhaps I will give the Fleet Excel a try too as it is only 1 ship module.

Is there any point in PvE in using the MVAM console??

Definitely try it out. Run something like this.

GW keeps mobs together. Focus on the weaker ships and watch as they destroy their friends with warpcore explosions.

Reason to split ship in PvE? Cuz its canon, just pretend you're the Doctor.

Breen ship?

also double Aux2bat Fleet excel with technicians can put out horrifying firepower from behind huge hull and high shields.

I run the battery build with the time DEM doff so every other time I let rip with my BO3 and CRF the weapons power stays above 100. Have to be careful of the off cycle BO, as I have carelessly dropped my weapons power to 0 a few times. But a properly set up alpha with a weapon bat for the second round of BO CRF and you melt anything in the game. For PVE swarms swap CRF for CSV, and its drop a large ships shield facing and frag the spam around it in the first 5 seconds.

The ens eng isnt hat bad now that Eng team fixes alot of shutdown effects.

there is no single best ship for tac in sto...depends more on how you play, and what you like estheticly. The choice is yours...but if your choice falls on the star cruiser then i'm wasting my time here.
also some other ships i wouldn't even consider on that list, but thats my opinion...the star cruiser however is a waste for a tac toon and that is a fact.

the sci ships you listed, well possible, but then you should stack dmg abilitys (those get boosted by APalpha)...but in general sci vessels are not suited for tacs very well...there are exceptions ofcourse, but not on your list.

personally my tac has a fleet defiant, love it, though the multivector is ZEF too. (my opinion)
patrol escort...the fleet variant, not the basic one. have it too, most versatile of all the escorts and the most sturdy (not only on paper)
this one can pack a TBR and TSS and HE which is very handy for many, many applications...if you do not need TBR change the boff to something else. but that ability is just too damn awesome to ever not want it. dmg against unshielded stationary targets (basically all stfs) and crowd control at it's finest for starbase blockade, stf cure, infected, KA,


at the end i have to say that the breen ship may outshine them all, i have yet to test it...in january
Go pro or go home
