Be warned though, since the skill tree buffs it and a drain build especially so, many will call foul against you in even an open area like Ker'rat. Also I am unaware what the countering ability is of the console, if it has one at all. Unlike the Gravitonic Pulse console, which is also buffed via the S.T. , but has Engineering team as a counter at least.
I'd just say "CRY SOME MORE!!! MUAHAHAAAAA!". Honestly, it is about time the Klingons got an upper hand and the Guramba is a perfect machine for this task. If they cannot figure out how to deal with it then they will just have to go Boomy for awhile.
After all, I know the counter to all Escort type ships.
On the flipside, if hard canon was the only guide to how STO would play as a MMO, this would be one boring game of Federation Cruiser Online, Combat only after discussion (unless you play fed -then shoot if you feel like it) and the factions outside the UFP would be nothing but monster play with little to give them substance in the MMO for the fans whom enjoy them in the Genre.
besides the tables and the *****ing will flip when the Feds get what ever new "toys" they are slated to recieve. I say let the warriors of the Empire enjoy what they have while it lasts.
I want to express my appreciation to Shinkuu Akagan and Roach for taking to time to email a PVP n00b with some valuable insights and ideas. My KDF tac Kalkan will be building on some of those ideas during the holidays, and you can expect to see him in PVP later this month.
Hopefully we can organize a group and test out some of the builds and ideas, and combine them with effective tactics in order to pwn many Feds.
