Put all ur BO skill points into beam attacks. I thought if i equiped all beam type weapons and they gave my 2 tactical BO beam over load 1 and 2 hoping i could just unleash hell by firing beam over load back to back. You cant beam over load attacks are on a timer from each other. So if u fire one you have to wait like 15 secs before u can fire the others.
it turns out its best to have a beam weapon, torpeode and a cannon and one phaser or turrent on the aft weapon. The having one attack for each style of weapon.
