Or steal a trick from an alien-of-the-week...


That had a hull plating that made it invisible of long range sensors. It's NOT cloaking but it serves much the same purpose.

hi !

i checked this topic SOOO often .. and tried the several ideas of builds for fleet aquarius but still it feels a bit uhm ... it seems to break fast still ..

first of all : who am i?

my name is anja, i ve played STO for almost 2 years
im a bit fleetjumper in sto .. when i get bored or smell problems i "jump" away ;D no worry i spent a lot into all my fleets ;D

my chars are:
- fed - sci- bajoran
- kdf - tak - orion
- kdf - sci - romulan

my fed char is my mainchar .. atm i use this ship :


hmm im not sure about the fleetdeflector .. atm is maintancetime <.<
oh and i use romulan sci konsole to increase shieldhealing and plasmadamage

for the past months i thought about a build for fleet aquarius because i like the design of that lil ship <3

but till now i did not find a build which made at least same damage as the nova + as tanky as flet prometheus or defiant >.<

i post the build i tried for fleet aquarius last time ( i tried urs too but it still has a problem with getting aggro because of the damage - in case i use a build with a lot damage like the trikobaltone)


why do i use this build atm?
well ..
2x hazardemitter -> VS plasmadebuff + hullhealing
1x sci team -> VS subnuke by voths + shieldhealing (shields down, aquarius dead )
2x beam overload for dual beambank to push damage a bit since my fed sci is only energywep skilled ..
2x scatter volley do to some DPS with the HDCs while beamoverload reloads
emergency energy to wep/shields -> to be wepenergy and shieldresi buffed ... ( i use 3x purple doff here to keep low the CD )

2 other doffs i use to get shieldheal when i get ready for impact...


- i use to do some normal damage even when i am not yet in effektive firerange for cannons (low impulsemodifier)
- i use dual beambank for the overload skills to do some good damage to the enemies in the moments their shields r down
- i use dual beambank for the overload to do some good damage on gates in STfs

3x hdc
well .. for scatter voley of course

1x kinetic beam
hmm it has 360radius so it fires always and does good damage on enemies when their shields r down

1x singlebam
- when i use overload the wepenergy is down, still the hdc can fire .. i think if i use turret it might decrease the damage of the 3hdc after using beam overload ... so the questing is weather the damagelose coz of another -8 wepenergy is HIGHER than the damage 3xhdc+1xturret would do ...

- another thought had been when i need to turn the ship to get other target in cannonrange the singlebeam is able to do atleast 1.3k as long as i cannot use the 45radius cannons and the 90radius dualbeam ..

i even wonder weather i could increase its passive hullreg with a second sif generator ... or maybe i should move borgconsole to sci consoles and keep just 1x +17.5% shieldstrength ... BUT put 2x sif console to the free tech slots .. so in summery it would be 3x sif console <.<

that way i could "tank" a bit more aggro and no need to be at 60% after plasmatorpburning -.-

i tried a fireatwill concept too ... which did GOOD damage BUT the lil aquarius had not been able to "tank" the aggro which it got by its good fireatwill damage ..

IF it had totally universal BOs i would make it :

tac com
TT1, fireatwill2, fireatwill3, beta3

tac ensign

lt com sci
hazard1, transfer shields2, hazard3

lt sci
polarize hull1, transfer shields2

lt eng
emergency power to wep + shields

that way it could tank the aggro it would get by fireatwill concept >.<
but the BOs r not all universal ;(

well ... anymore ideas how i could run that lil bird?

I'm just bummed the devs say they won't give the Aquarius the new flanking buff that comes with the new Breen ship and that will come with all BOP soon.

The Aquarius is essentially supposed to be the FED version of a BOP so why not give it the new flanking power?

That "might" make the Aquarius more useful in game.

I purchased the Fleet Aquarius just because I want to have every ship in the game but right now I only use it if I'm in the mood to make the game really difficult by using a weak ship. Given the price of the Fleet Aquarius it should NOT be a weak ship.

It either needs a complete overhaul (more hull, more weapons, better shields, etc.) or the devs should just give it the new flanking power.
In the immortal words of Captain Sisko: "It may not be what you believe, but that doesn't make it wrong."

aquarius is still worthless, those 2 proposed builds just make it slightly more worthless.

are there any known improvements they plan to add to aquarius/fleetaquarius ? or did they finish that topic yet?

The ship is the smallest sized before the ships turn into runabouts or shuttles, why not make this the only ship that crosses the lines and let it be used for shuttle missions as well as normal missions? It would seem overpowered if running it in the Vault per say, but continue to be under-powered in normal ship combat.

if they put it into shuttlesection there is NO more reason to buy ANY other of the shuttles ..

that is why they should NOT do that ...
but they could at least give it a 100% universal BO layout ..
