Hi all,

Recently returning Tactical Captain here.

I can't recall ever exploring a T5 primarily DBB and Photon Torpedo build.

Anyone have any advice or skills and ship setup tips please?

I was considering the Armitage carrier or T5 Akira. I currently run an all DHC cannon amd turret build retrofit escort.

Thanks

Run the kinetic cutting beam in the rear, is about all I can tell you.
You might also want to consider the Nukara rep console, it gives +10acc to beam weapons.

I've been toying with similar ideas, but never got around to working them out.

If you're going all-in on a photon based Akira you're going to need (at minimum) the following:

2x Photon Torpedo Launchers (I recommend Mk XII [Acc][CrtD]x2)
3x Projectile Warfare Officers (Purple quality)
2-Piece Adapted MACO Set (I prefer shields and engines myself, but there are arguments to be made for other combinations)
1x Photon Torpedo Tactical Cobnsoles

The above will give you the capacity to continuously fire off a photon at the torpedo GCD. Design the rest of your build around that (either with cannons or DBBs using BO to knock down shields) and you can wreak some destruction pretty readily.
