I'm big on "canon". I've got a Human Male TAC officer. I want to put a him in a Cruiser--any suggested builds to make him effective both on ground and in space?
I'm thinking I can build his ground skills normally like a regular Ground TAC. Space skills would have to be chosen carefully--and augmented with the right set of BOffs and consoles to make up for the deficiency caused by skill mismatch.
He doesn't have to be the perfect 'toon all min-maxed for uber-tank or super-DPS or anything... I just want him to be effective and be able to hold his own in combat against a broad range of enemies--a jack-of-all-trades, not unlike the Captains seen on the shows.
Of course, being canon-centric, some things will be a given. Phasers and torps--the UFP don't use disruptor or plasma weapons--it's that simple. Other things are more flexible--shields, consoles, etc.
