I played STO back in beta and for a month or so afterwards, but couldn't quite stick with it. I'm back after getting tired of other games I've been playing and because of seeing all the new stuff they are putting out for STO.
My existing characters aren't high level enough to really factor into this question.
I'm wondering what people have found to be the best captain type for flying an escort ship. I know a lot of it is simply player preference, but I'm curious what people have found works best for them and why. I've played a tactical escort captain through Lt. 6, so have a (small) taste of what that will be like. But I'd like to hear about Engineering and Science as well.
Also, what player/race traits work best with the escort?
