blockade runner escort, the steamrunner

all of you should get this, to ether support more canon ship like this getting added, or because its a fleet level ship thats an account wide unlock that only costs $10. it has 34500 hitpoints, or 400 more then a fleet patrol, and an interesting 2 LT eng and 1 ENS sci station setup.

3 DHC, 1 DBB, 3 turrets

TT1, BO2, CRF2, APO3
TT1, APD1, CSV2

EPtS1, AtS1
EPtE1, RSP2

HE1

station power long form here

equipment

omega deflector
omega engine
maco shield

consoles

3 turn, 1 EPS

borg, zero point

4 energy type consoles

doffs

2 purple damage control, 2 attack pattern doffs, 1 AtS doff

16 turn is a tad low, so i have a heavy investment in turn consoles. AP doffs giving you lots of APO3 up time will be very helpful too. HE1 and AtS1 with the AtS doff should be enough to keep you hull healthy, and you have RSP to fall back on. with heals covered, you can use the omega engine, its nice and fast, and with good engine energy and APO will make you very speedy for such i fat, chunky ship. damage control doffs will let you use your EPtS and EPtE at their global with just 1 copy.

I always loved steamrunner the most, so even tho I'm not happy with low sci layout, I will probably try it out. Was thinking about something like this, while I'm at work.

EPTS1;AtS1
EPTA1;ET2

HE1

2x maintanace doffs
2x damage control doffs
1x whaetever

1x armor console, 3x sif console

Should allow to cyclle me ET2 every 15s, and boosting other hull heals with SIF bonus.

But might try to shield heal with ST instead, but dropping HE seems..hazardous.....

Nice that this ship has 2x LT engineers, but with the Cmdr AND ltCmdr tacticals, this ship is not designed for running 2x AtoB

I might try something like this with the steamrunner:

Fore Weapons: 4xDHC
Aft Weapons: 2x Tric mines [CritH]x(as much as you can get), 1 turret

TT1, APD1, APO1, CRF3
TT1, CSV1, DPB2

ETPS1, AtB1
EPTA1, AtS1

PH1

Doffs: 3xTech, 2xShield Distribution

Consoles:
1 Turn, 2 armor, Borg
1 P2W console, 1 Shield
4 Energy weapon or maybe throw in some TCD

AtB gets almost everything to shared cooldown except TT and the Cannon abilities.

so If we have the RETAIL version, we obviously can't get that ship right...?

Yes you can. It gives you a Key that you redeem on the STO website

Missing out TSS is a huge loss for this ship. I feel too naked without it.

Low-level A2S isn't enough to make up for the loss of HE, if I go with TSS1 either.

Well, you could always spam ST1 + 2x lab doffs. Its better than TSS2, but most people rely too on TT. What hurts most, would be that lack of HE. Science slots are simply needed.
