5 forward weapons on an escort, worst idea ever. try tanking 5 DHCs, not going to happen. this will make 5 tac console ship firepower look like a joke. you know, it would be 1 thing if it was a fed pattern cruiser, that could only use beamarrays or singles. but a ship that will be useing DHCs?
And if it follows the 3-pack pattern of the Odyssey and Bortasqu and Vesta, then it will be Commander Tac plus Universal LtCmdr. Set the Universal for Engineer, go 5 DHCs plus CRF plus APO plus DEM (with Marion) plus Tac Capt stuff.
