If you run one DBB with 2xBeam Overloads running on CD the javelin is redundant. The javelin is basically a BO it even triggers the BO CD . so it's not worth it . i used the gurambe for three weeks then went to vorcha-r on my ENG . ill try my TAC next but i really am digging the Heg too much to think i will switch for a long time. as it stands right now the guramba is a raptor minus the cloak for a while i liked it i had it all borged up but it was only so so in the end.

I run a Guramba on my Tac Lt. Gen.
I personally love the ship along with the B'Rel-r.
I have dual heavy cannons and torpedo up front, and turrets in the rear. I fly it just live a Fed escort.

I have found that the Javelin works really good on Borg cubes, especially when running Infected. It is pretty good on the carrier in the Cure, but it isn't much help against Donatra's ship in KA. She moves too fast and cloaks before I can power it up. Her shields are always up with decloaks, so no help there either.

Seems I can use cannons with it very well. Even in "Siege Mode" I do not find that it is all that super sluggish compared to what my Raptor had been.

One last question: Is the Javelin effected by my skills any? That is, is it effected by "Disruptor Damage" or "Beam/Cannon" damage skills?

I just logged in to check on the skills the Javelin uses and it's not listed in the drop-down list. The odd thing is that it had a bunch of disruptor beam arrays listed that I don't have; like 5 arrays and some banks and then some copies of target subsystem shields... I think the Guramba might have some bugs in the skill section.

At any rate I recall reading that both the spinal lance and javelin use beams and phaser/disruptor skills, which is why I set mine up with all beams. I just can't seem to find where I read that.

On the STOWiki it has it listed as Phaser Damage and Beams lol... So I can guess it is wrong.

I also have skills there I do not have currently like a bunch of bare-handed attacks when I have both slots filled. I also could not find the Javelin.
