From here, it's hard to imagine how "if you are in an STF, with that kind of firepower, you're going to get into trouble easy" with this fleet Sovereign, as you said by yourself earlier in this thread.

Since you specifically mentioned STFs, I came in with my opinions. You taking the discussion to PvP logically invalidates all my posts. Thank you for that.
The beauty of Com Eng and LtCom Eng is that you can chain Emergency Power to Shields 3 which is great for super tanking....I can wade into battle surrounded by mobs of enemies and survive. Of course I do supplement with Tactical Team, Transfer Shield Strength and even Reverse shield polarity if things get rough. With both Com ENG and LtCom ENG, supplemented by LT Sci, you can do some extreme shield tanking and some hull tanking (depending how you set up your Sovereign). So I have a whole arsenal of shield and hull tanking abilities for all situations. Of course often I don't use it all but it has enough to handle almost any situation.

That is the playstyle many of us love with the current sovereign setup. Of course, the new tactical boff setup will be interesting to try, but I'd like the option to stay with the current setup as well. Hope they give us a fleet variant with the current setup.

I thank you very much for revealing that, still, there are a couple ways how you can maintain cycling just one EPtS III thanks to doffs. Also, the fleet version has better shields. So, I maintain this: In any PVE, the loss in tankability for the fleet version is minimal, if not negligeable (or just nonexistant altogether), while the gain in offense is grandiose.
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Design that long overdue Tier 5 C-Store Raptor
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!
