Just wondering if there has been one created as of yet since their release. I'm currently using the Scimitar as an Engie for the five tac slots, and focus on an ambush type play style, yet I want better. So, have there been any inspired ideas lately that can help with this, or are their better options out there?

I use drunks build and I can personally say that it is far superior to anything I could come up with

I can also however second the fact that even with 5 tac consoles as an eng trying to be a date dealer just can't be fun

Agreed. They're missing out on the Attack Pattern Alpha buff, the Tactical Fleet buff, AND the Go Down Fighting buff (which, while nerfed, is still of some use). The lack of the APA one is especially problematic, as it has the shortest cooldown and is quite a buff. Trying to burst-DPS using an engineer is not easy to do, they're just not designed for it. He'd be better off using a Sci or Tac for that role. . .the Sci at least has the option of subnuking and scanning, which will help with ambush alphastrikes.

We'll, I'm not looking for the greatest amount of dps burst out there, I know as an Engie I'm limited on how much I can pump out. I was simply thinking more along the lines of survivability.

I had not thought they were going to put out a Scimitar bundle so soon, otherwise I would have rolled Tac, but o well. So, my follow up question would be, what can an Engie do in PvP?

Well...

"Ask not what an engie can do in PvP, but what PvP can do for an engie"

...Sorry, couldn't resist.

Anywho, engies can do whatever they wish in PvP. Problem more is that an engie, outside of making sure you can keep yourself alive easier...can't really bring much that the other two classes can. You wouldn't be bringing an SNB, or APA, etc still.

I mean, engineers all the way for me, I love my Fed engineer, nothing will EVER make me quit playing it.

Though the whole 'engineers are not needed' thing is really just a part of a larger issue.

Ok after searching for this link I now realise I use drunks build on 90% of my ships

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...&postcount=821

This build will cost you a lot of ec for the doffs but once your have them they will make any ship with 2 lt. Engineers god like

Enjoy
