that one ship with the sphere front was a hospital ship
sci ships should have probably been more the healers
but they ain;t it a bad spot now - a universal bridge crew spot would jack them up
and since they are science it makes sense that they are more flexible
Anyone who says they aren't in a bad spot right now is nuts. I know they aren't meant to be *thee* dps...but would be nice if they did some damage. They can't even do the job they were designed for well because science abilities are overall weak, easily avoidable, and generally laughable.
Attack Pattern Omega counters the entire stack. Next ...
Since you asked for next, care to comment on any of my proposed ideas? Giving science ships the clear edge in science and mathematics not only seems to be the proper path for the ship class, but also may help improve the education and standardized testing scores in this country.

Problem is that "science" doesn't do anything in the game. Being better in being useless is not much of an advancement.
In the end the problem is not the power of Sci ships, but the balance between disable abilities and pure DPS (or the lack of it). Sadly it is unlikely that Cryptic will address this problem. So whats left is to make Sci ships more into escorts. They would still be inferior, but the gap is closed a bit. This also fits into Cryptics/PWs marketing strategy of "Dps sells".
