As an additional note, it appears that the Borg set is going to be broken up in the near future, so the MACO shield+3 Borg set advice may soon be obsolete. Just what WILL be a wise course of action likely won't be known until we're closer to season 7 hitting Holodeck. Just as a general heads-up to relatively late-breaking news.

This is the first time I've been able to get on today because of work and other things, but I appreciate the additional advice. Last night I got the add-on text file and got my stuff set up. I haven't gotten around to getting Emergency Power to the Weapons/Shields 3 yet, but I do have 1 and 2. Let me just say that while I'm now hammering on that spacebar like a mad man my survivability has gone way way way up. I was able to tank the Tactical Cube in Infected for a bit and once I get Shields 3 I'm sure it will be even better.

I'm thinking of taking the advice about weapons and going with Disruptors. While it will be weird firing them from a Federation ship, I like green, so, you know. With all the STFs I'm doing though I can always trade them out for Phasers eventually too lol. I'll just have a whole bank full of weapons. One full set of each kind.

I'll be upgrading consoles as soon as I figure out what weapon type I'll go with after Tetryon. The re-stat will probably be the last thing that I take care of because of the cost

my advice on weapons, you want to use Disrupters or phasers or Polaron.
or while you can before they remove them get the Polarized Weapons.

7 beams and a wide-angle Q torp are the best dps config for a tac in my experience. The Q-torp is for a speck of dps that doesn't lower dps on your other weapons, so don't spend precious tac slots on a torp skill.

Also, don't expect to 1-shot people. (Unless you're a dreadnought and really lucky) Focus on coordinating with an escort to BO2 a shield facing then have him torp it to pieces.

Just so OP knows, the wide-angle Q-torp comes with the Assault Cruiser Refit (Regent class). This is, in many ways, a side-grade to a more tactically-inclined version of the AC.

If you want a ship that's more oriented towards a battleship role, this is a pretty good one IMO, though some might say you'd get more out of the Odyssey Tactical, and the Excelsior-R is a bit cheaper.

That said I'm also going to have to recommend the q-torp; the lower DPS of that weapon is more than made up for by the fact that you now have a torpedo involved in your broadsides.
