I'm doing well with my STO Main (a Human Male Starfleet Tactical Officer) and am looking forward to getting him a Vigilant-Class Tactical Escort.
However, I'm also working on designing a couple of Alts--I won't start them until my Main gets his Vigilant, but I eventually want to: A) try a different path in Starfleet, see what commanding a Science Vessel or Cruiser would be like, and B) see what life is like on the Klingon Side of the game.
Now, the only thing I need to work on for the Klingon Alt is his Physical Appearance, so I'm good there. However, I'm facing a bit of a conundrum with my Starfleet Alt (a Human Female).
Basically, my Starfleet Alt is going to be a member of Starfleet Research and Development, and her ship is going to be a Mobile Technology Lab. However, my problem is deciding what Career Spec and Ship Type to give her.
So, I'm asking everyone out there: Would a Technology Lover in R&D like my Starfleet Alt be better as a Science Officer or as an Engineer? Also, would a Science Vessel or a Cruiser function better as a Mobile Technology Lab?
