Ummmm, thanks for all the replies? Though this thread is over two months old so not sure how it even got found, but whatever. Since originally posted, gave up on the PSW builds since it was nerfed to useless and my new torpedo builds don't care about range, and picked up 4 more proto deflectors since then. But hey, yay for enthusiasm, belated or otherwise.
Oh and 'taking orders' based on who's the loudest and has some l33tness tag? Pffft, yeah right.
