So these new Elite Fleet Deflectors are interesting. Axions provide some tactical bonuses while Fermion adds some tankiness while making sure you are going to need it, and the [SciCdr] affix is rather nice, but I can't help but feel science ships have actually been left out. Why aren't there Elite fleet versions of the regular deflector types (Neutrino, Graviton, Tachyon and Positron)? The new affix is nice, but not if it comes at the expense of science power effectiveness.

Non-snarky query, would you mind putting up the stats for each? I've been unable to locate what the elite's actually have.

See this thread http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=500241

The gist of it is, they replaced the regular deflectors, one of the new ones buff maneuvers and targeting, the other buffs tanking while also raising threat control, so they theoretically have a type for cruisers and a type for escorts, but they left out science vessels. The elite fleet mod is [SciCdr] which reduces science cooldowns by 10%, but what good is that for science ships, if the magnitude of the science powers suffers?

Nothing Cryptic?
Come on, throw us a bone.

Fleet gear is supposed to be great stuff from what you have said, but so far the raction from my fleet has been a resounding "Meh use a set deflector"

A Graviton Deflector with [SciCdr] would be epic.
