I think the general consensus is that it's a great escort, if you have the chance to own one I say go for it. I haven't got one though, but I wouldn't mind

Best escort in game period. I get better dps than fleet defiant with 2 pces Jem set and polaron weapons, 4x borg dhc pol and 3 borg pol turrets vs 4x Fleet AP (critD) and 3 x fleet ap turret (acc) on defiant. Turn like a fly and tough as nail. Some say OP, I say yeah lets destroy some enemy..... fast, real fast

Do you PvE or PvP?

The Jem'hadar attack ship is the best PvP ship, hands down. It's fast, versatile, durable, allows for many different loadouts and benefits from the 'Victory Is Life' Jem set.

If you're a PvE'r, I'd say save your EC's and use whatever you got. In PvE, it makes no difference.

I love the ship. Have only done elite STFs with it so dont know about PvP but its awesom. For now its gonna be my main ship. Always flown escorts, flown all and lately been playing with atrox carrier but since i got this ship some days ago i leave all other ships in the shipyard.. for now.

If it doesn't DPS like a defiant retro on steroids and tank like an oddy you're doing it wrong... enough said

I was lucky enough to get one on the 3rd Reinforcements Duty Officer Pack. Nice ship! I went through all the Jem' missions and got the Shield/Impulse/Deflector set. I think I'll go for the Phased Polaron set as well. It has only 1 Science slot (I recommend Shield reg console) but 5! Tac slots = weapon power!

I have it setup with standard Polaron DC's (any weapons in the game will work with it) in front and Polaron turrets on back and it rips the shields off of the NPC ships. It's great for STFs. I have not done PvP yet but I'm sure its great there too.

It relies on being fast (it's an escort not a cruiser) so don't try to tank with it.

If you have a few bucks, I would recommend giving it a try in the C-Store before the sale is over - just don't go crazy. You at least get some DOffs from it.

The best escort in the game, for PvE or PvP.

Has more hull than the Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit, higher shield modifier (I think?), and has a much higher turn rate.

I don't need or want one, but I can see why a lot of people do prefer it.

It is an awesome ship!

I love the 2 Uni LT slots, can really change it up to suit your needs.

Elite cubes are a joke!.. ( if done right )
