Consoles

see screenshot for what is inventory at all times.

forgot 4 astrometric consoles.

Engineer

Usually equipped with

Field Emitter + Generator

In inventory

----

Tactical

Borg Console
Automated Defense

Alt 1
Phaser Turret from steam
RI console Shame on me

----------

Devices

Usually Subspace Field Mod, Engi Batt, Aux Batt. Atleast 4 of all batts in inventory all times. *except after battles*

--------

I think thats it equipment-wise

Playstyle

In short

Find tac/damage dealer Keep tac/damage dealer alive, Coordinate attacks with tac/damage dealer.

In long.

Most generalized version
always keep epts up

Tac in Range > TT2 on tac *if one isnt on tac already* > Tractor Tac target > CPB3 > BTengine + chrons target>subnuc*if needed*<> TSS2/HE2 on tac *if needed* > TT1 on tac as he leaves theater.

People I prioritize healing on : ANYONE ive seen post in opvp
People I dont like healing: Cruisers /engi tac or sci. 98% dont give back heals.

How I usually die.

1.Healing others target switches to me and getting no heals back.
2.Alpha on me and getting no heals.
3.Using ablative and damage getting in before it kicks in.
4.Cant get bop away from sniffing my colon.

99% is usually me not being prepared for what is brought to table but thats why i carry all that stuff in inventory. I die to a bop who hugs my a5s i switch to TBR3 and keep him out of range. or whatever situation needs.

I am reasonably sure my skill points need some optimizing / I need to make an alien sci with efficient, elusive, accurate and *techie/astro/starship ops one*/ I forget my point in this sentence.

Point of thread.

Any recommendations / faults notice in build I need to change. Whatever Ill take whatever advice is given.

oh I refuse to use
Torp Spread + SS3 + Pangs+ FaW Personal thing. I understand if Im nerfing self, dont care.

Ways I try and keep escorts/BOPs off my butt:

TBR1 (higher isnt needed)
Tractor and move out of arc
Jam and evade cannon arc (to stop shooting it/break jam)
FBP3
Evasive to opposite side of fight (using evasive or deuterium)
PSW or rear Tric

Example: If focused by 3 opponents, 1 escort 2 cruiser

Tractor escort (if possible SNB his alpha)
Jam 1st cruiser
Debuff 2nd cruiser

Wait for help

If none shows, PSW and evasive away

Dual TT on a sci ship?

Nah, you have big giant shields, you shouldn't need two. You should be running dual sci teams for clearing debuffs and/or shield healing.

They arent primarily for me. I pug "alot" and find that way too many people either dont have it or dont use it.

1 to give 1 for keep.

I can switch out for dual sci team but what would you recommend to replace the TT's?

I used jam for a while but it just seemed a dash selfish
FBP seems overly selfish.

TBR1 cant use without losing a tss2/he2. I like my he3,2/tss2/3 chain.

ill clarify my weapons in main thread but i run two chrons fore 2 trics rear 1 beam fore 1 beam aft

Currently though aft bug. I may be able to toss on 1 more beam but i think filling my rear with beams will kill my overall dps/ wep power.

Will wing that PSW when i q up tonight and see how it plays out.

The point is that if you have to rely on yourself to survive (because heals doesnt come your way), then your BOffs skills should reflect that.. Anyways.. Using PSW defensively gives you ~4 secs to get some heals (or your Ablative) running.. Also gives you time to scoot away from the frontal arcs.

Try the different skills Ive mentioned, go with what you feel most comfortable with.
