I was thinking about this ussult, what do you think about tanking and DPSing with the oddy saucer sep on all the time. would that be worth it, it basically makes the oddy an escort.

What makes an escort and escort is cannons.

If you wanted really to, I suppose you could try a Single Cannon build using 4x Single Cannons fore and 4x Turrets aft.

Then you could do the following:

TAC LT: TT 1 > CRF 1
TAC LTC: TT 1 > CRF 1 > APO 1

Frees up 2x Active Duty slots or:

TAC LT: TT 1 > CRF 1
TAC LTC: BO 1 > CRF 1 > APO 1

With 3x Cannons + 1DBB
4x Turrets



The main issues would be that Saucer sep does have some limitations, specifically a 5 min cooldown.

It would probably be a smidge more DPS, but I doubt it would be more than 500 or so.

the interesting thing about saucer sep is that I can basically leave it on all fight. if my saucer dies, it doesn't matter, I'll keep the boost until I decide to start the 5 minute cooldown.

Can an oddy equip cannons? I wasn't sure.

cruisers can equip cannons except for DHCs IIRC.

To address the original question, I fly a defiant refit and I use the APO to escape tractors and as a second evasive maneuvers. I'm sure my build isn't as finely tuned as some of the others posted here, but I survive and I dish out the damage and I have fun. One of my alts is a sci in the kitty carrier, so if I want to fly with pets, I would rather play him than buy the armitage with the single hanger bay.

The Armitage is a full Escort, and with even a single hangar bay you will see a significant DPS increase on something like Elite STFs.

Also, for Cure Space Elite, the Danubes provide a great "free" tractor beam against Raptors and Negh'var.
