# 1 Galor tac advice
02-23-2012, 06:16 AM
I recently got a galor ship and plan on using it on the tac officer I'm currently leveling, and was wondering if anyone with galor experience could give me some advice on the best setup for it? Any info would help especially boff setups and skill builds.

I'm working on the same thing myself with my tactical officer. So far I've set it up with 2 Plasma-Disruptor Hybrid Beams, 1 of the Spiral Wave Disruptors and Quantum Torpedoes both on the fore and aft and I've also put 3 Disruptor Coil consoles in the tactical slot to beef them up. That way you get 3 different damage types, but only one console type needed to improve DPS.

As far as the bridge officer layout goes, that's still a work in progress for me, so if anyone else has any ideas I'd like to know too.

Weapons fore and aft:

2x Spiral wave disruptors
1x plasma-disruptor hybrid beam array
1x quantum torp launcher

Borg set with Aegis shield

red matter capacitor

Neutronium

# 5 My build

I have put a Tac into a Galor, and kept my expectations to a minimum. I have a second Tac in a Retrofit Escort so it wasn't going to hurt anything to try. That said in my limited experience so far it has been the traditional average at many things.. great at nothing set up.

Weapons - 4 Spiral disruptor array's, 2 plasma/disruptor Hybrids, Photon Torpedo fore, and photon Mine AFT.

Equipment - MACO Shield array Mk XI, Borg engine and deflector.

Consoles - 3 disruptor coils for Tac, EPS Flow regulator, Kin and Energy resistance console, Kin resist console, and Can't remember the 4th off the top of my head in Engineer, as well as the Borg Console, and Shield Capacity console in Science.

Bridge officers my current set up is -

Commander Engineering - Engineering team, Reverse Shield Polarity, EP 2 Shields 3, Aux to structural 3

Lt. Commander Tac - Tac team, Beam Fire at will 2., Beam overload 3

Lt. Tac - Tac team, Beam target subsystem Engines 2

Lt. Engineering - EP 2 shields 1, Extend Shields

Science Officer - Polarize Hull

Back up Engineer commander has Eject Warp plasma 3 instead, to make my Galor skilled in CC.

And my Back up Tactical's have more Kinetic power skills, if I want to focus on Torpedo's and Mines more then beam arrays.

Buy nothing but ACCx2 or 3 cannons....

Get three cannons and one Beam ... all ACC x 2 or 3 MK XI gear off exchange

Then put four turret in the back..also all ACC x whatever

Then get tac consoles to match your cannons and turrets...make sure they are all the same type..dont mix-match weapon groups

Get armor and shield stuff for eng and sci spots

Fill up on batteries....

Kill everything in pvp and pve....

its easy sauce with the galor..the cannons are 180 degree..so you always got someone in your arc...u are basically an escort....have fun

I would not bother with the spiral beams if you are using the Plasma-Disruptor Hybreds.... the DPS they put out is superior to the spiral beams, also if you want 3 different damage trpes look into aquiring the Omega Ship Gear from STF runs.... I did the math and research, and while a mixed bag on the Galor works woth the omega set for the 4 different damage types you really want the procs.... the hybreds give you the disruptor debuff and plasma dot, the spiral wave gives you the disruptor debuff and the phaser proc.... mate them together in equal numbers with an Omega set and you are hurting them so many different ways at ones that the lack of DPS from the spirals is not all that noticable......

I don't know about PvP (not that good and the Galor's got a bit of a glass jaw) but when it comes to STF's this is by far my favorite ship! It doesn't go all over the place like an Escort and it's zippier than a cruiser. I can actually fully use my front and rear torpedo launcher... I can practically make a 180 by the time one launcher is done cooling down!

The setup is similar to an Excelsior, but she moves faster, and that universal Lieutenant Bridge Officer slot is handy.

I use that universal slot to put in an extra science officer. Finally, I can have Transfer Shield Strength, Hazard Emitters and Science team all at once!

As for the spiral wave disruptors... they're a great novelty, but you do lose some DPS. I just stuck to my STF store phasers.
