A friend of mine (we have been doing various MMOs for ~8 years now) and I both made captain last week. Neither of us are really min/max type players and the story like nature of STO has allowed us to mostly ignore our builds so far. At the same time it would be nice to start optimizing my escort for DPS since my friend is playing a cruiser/tank.
I have initially loaded up with 4 dual heavy cannon disruptors up front, but now read that may not actually be the best way to go. Honestly, any pointers on BOFF skills, consoles, captain skills, and loadout are all greatly appreciated.
