I just hit 50 and had to reset my talents from scratch due to a "invalid skills" bug and I figured as long as I'm starting over, and after just getting the tactical scimitar, what would be the best talent build to maximize dps?
-star trek online minimum DPS requirement vortex probe hp = 62365 x3 = 187095. speed = 0.8 km/s(about) giving about 25 seconds to kill them while in range, this means you need an effective DPS output of 7484, or your build is a failure. Star Trek canon depictions of battle: 1000km in dialogue = 1km on screen.
Alright, then what would be the best "skill"build for my choice in ship?
I was contemplating on answering that, but, honestly, with no further info on your playstyle and all, I couldn't come up with anything other than 'skill for tactical' (which is as useful as 'Buy low, sell high!'). My (very generic) guess is that any skilltree typically used on Escorts will apply to Scimitars as well; but best check the skillplanner site too. That should give you a reasonable estimate.
