I was told it was a typo but it seems that it is actually an issue with the T5 Steamrunner Retrofit's stats. Its shields are not working as designed so you might notice that the Shield Modifier reports its value at 0.7. This is incorrect; it should be 1.0.. So, Shield HP and activating any abilities that modify your, or your targets shields will be too low. The Tier 1 Steamrunner was unaffected.
Strange, I was able to set my weapons to auto-fire on the separate weapon command box.
Anyhoo, this is my first escort; and am loving it so far. This is my favorite ship in ST, so I jumped at the chance to buy it; I appreciate that this is a ship tailor-made for dps-minded Engineers like me.
Fix the shield modifier and you'll keep my Oddy in drydock for a lengthy shakedown.
