Hi guys n gals been reading a lot and a lot of threads on these forums and can't find a definitive answer so I am hoping some of you experienced science jockeys would care to assist a returning player.
Just a note before I start. I do not want this thread to be hijacked by individuals whom think that science officers in science ships suck. I don't think I suck. I have returned to the game and require assistance as much has changed since my last build. This type of help I can't get from my current fleet as most or out of my timezone.
A little pre-history with my char.
ok I'll say that back in the day :-) my role on the ground and in space where very similiar - Heavy CC with some healing. I would very much like to keep that role but I will keep an open mind to your suggestions.

How I usually open up a fight in pve
subtarget shield on the way in hit emergency power to aux hit gravity well use high yield 2 hit my transphasics then subtarget engines to keep target in grav well use tractor beam turn out and when can fire I finish them with transphasic cluster mine thingie. Usually I win. This is for normal pve fight I do also use sensor scan in there when I can remember it.
Now when running normal STF's My role is I feel is not pure dps but to provide for the most part CC I feel that I am doing ok providing CC and a spot of healing. using one of 2 tractors if needed (1 being part of the 4 set bonus) I feel that I could be doing more here. I always subtarget something.
Other abilities that I make availabe and use them when needed is tractor repulsers great for protecting kang or keeping the nanite probes away from repairing the gate.
Emergency power to shields
I have feedback pulse but Im considering changing that
Your replies wil be met with an open mind thanks for your time
