So - I've been playing this game for about 2 weeks now, happily flying around in escort not caring much for bridge officers. After a while I changed difficulty level to advanced and problems started.
Yesterday I encountered this guy : D'deridex Battleship in one of exploration system near DS9.
And I simply got ***** like 6 times in a row - I couldn't even pass trough his shields.
Finally I managed to feeding him with hargh'peng torpedos and stay alive long enough for him to pop from radiation.
Anyway - It made me take a look into my Boff and think about making better use of their abilities.
I just archieved commander level so I can fly heavy escort now.
So far my officers skills are :
Tactical Team I, Torpedo High Yeld II, Rapid Fire III
Torpedo High Yeld I, Beam Fire At Will
Jam Sensors I, Hazard Emiters II
Emergency Power to Shields I, Reverse Shields Polarity
Could you give me some advice what can be changed here ? I'm going into cannon + torp setup for my ship.
