So it was noted that there isn't actually a guide posted up here about piloting escorts in PvP. Maybe its time we changed that.
Just note that my posts here are going to be exclusively Federation, since I have never gotten a klink past Lieutenant Commander, and well almost no one plays Raptors at all at the high ranks. BoPs DO NOT COUNT AS ESCORTS either. There is simply too many differences.
I will be making a seperate post for each escort used at the tier 5 level, the effects of captain choices and innate abilities best used, equipment, bridge officer abilities, and then a general battle strategy for the wannabe escort captains. This may take a little while for me to complete(obviously), so please keep patient.
