expect these builds to get updated after ive actually had a chance to touch them and use the consoles and see for my self any potential synergy

i'll proboly drop beams and recommend torps for the bop with that set bonus, for example

here we have a pretty cool destroyer type, thats actually got more tac then the 2 smaller ships. its also going to be the most amazing energy weapon damage dealer ever launched, with its console bonus. (25% Resistance to Weapon Power Drain, including from weapon fire,+5 Weapon Power) which is sorta to bad that its an energy weapon buffed ship, cause i liked were it launched torps from.

3 DHC, 1 DBB, 3 turrets/2 turrets+1 cutting beam

TT1, CRF1, BO3, APO3
TSS:S1, APD1

EPtE1, AtB1, EPtS3
ET1, AtB1

HE1

omega deflector
omega engine
maco/fleet elite shield

consoles

2/3 turn, borg
Shield Absorptive Frequency Generator, Ionized Particle Beam
4 energy damage type

doffs- 3 purple tech, 2 BFI

this thing should be scary with energy weapons, with -25% drain for every regular shot, and BO. wish a fed cruiser had something like this, damn. you should be able to get away with no EPS console i imagine, and load up on as many turn consoles as you want. turn rate should not be an issue then. with the strong shield mod and hitpoints, EPtE and APD, this ship should be very good at tanking along with laying down hard spike.

i would love to love this ship in game, but its 5 turn rate makes that extreamly dificult. being a TNG fan is the most painful thing to be in this game. they think its station setup does it such a favor, all its done is make it very difficult to use an AtB build on it, the best way to get the most out of a kirktastic cruiser. just +2 to turn rate is next to nothing. it might not be worth even using that console pair.

3 DHC, 1 torp, 4 turrets/3 turrets+1 cutting beam

TT1, CRF1, APO1
THY1

EPtE1, AtB1, AtB2, DEM3/RSP3
EPtS1

TSS1, HE2, VM1/TB3

borg deflector
borg engine
maco/fleet elite shield

consoles

3/4 turn
Molecular Phase Inverter, Projected Singularity, borg
3 energy damage type

doffs- 3 purple tech, 2 systems VM/2 TB shield drain/2 evasive conn/2 BFI

it occurs to me that the galaxyX will proboly be a better kirk cruiser then this will. a very sad thought. your best chance is to use the battle cloak to your advantage as much as possible, and try to hit hard. APO and EPtE will give this ship as much maneuverability as it can possibly have, and the battle cloak should allow for good positioning. if only this thing turned as well as a negvar.

You could even ditch ET1 and get EptS1 and use DEM2 with marion

I'm currently running a double aux2batt setup on my Jem'Hadar Dreadnought Carrier. I do understand that the ship in terms of survivability is quite squishy by design. However i'm open for suggestions for better tanking and such. Im currently running

TT1, APD1, TS3, APO3
TH1, FAW2
EPtA1, A2B1, RSP2
EPtS1, A2B1(univeral LT)
HE1

3x purple technician
1x purple conn with reduced CD on TT +10 Attack Patterns
1x purple shield doff (chance to add shield heal on BFI)

Further i'm running a complete romulan plasma beam array build + romulan singularity harness set.

Consoles
TAC: Plasma Infuser MK XI, 3x Plasma Infuser MXII
ENG:borg + rommie console, transwarp computer(for higher efficieny) and RCS MK XII
SCI:2X Embassy emitter array MK XI[+plasma]

Please let me now if you need more information

Hi Dustreth.

For more tanking I would suggest to ditch RSP2 and get EptS3. Because you run no TSS, you need to increase resistance. Then replace EptS1 for ET1. This one you can use on demand.

Then if you really want/need 2 tac teams, 1 conn doff is not enough. Personally, I would never use 2 doffs for 1 ensign ability. So ditch HY1 and get another tac team. You say, It will share cooldown with engineering team, but you will see you need ET to clear virusses and you can use additional hull heals. Then, for even more tanking you can equip a second SDO doff.

I would also ditch your transwarp computer. Its useless, and even more useless with AtoB builds since you will have 3/4 systems above 75 power. Replace it with a RCS or the tachyokinetic converter (lobi) for increased turnrate, especially with coming turnrate changes. If you dont care about turnrate (you use FAW with arrays) you can equip 2 neutronium alloys to have more hull resist.

Thank you for your reply rudiefix1. First about swapping RSP2 -> EPtS3 and EPtS1 -> ET1: I noticed already with running just one shield heal is not enough suffient when you're under constant fire. I always used RSP2 when EPtS1 was on cooldown. Also running 2x EPtS on a 2x A2B boat is useless(as explained many times on the forum), because you cant get the 2nd EPtS up fast enough when the other is on cooldown. So what brings ET1 into the game? its just a hull heal. I'm an engineer captain and HE1 with a high level aux power is sufficient for hull healing. I will try your suggestion tonight or tomorrow, but i'm just doubtful if it will work. I'm also thinking to swap the uni Lt from eng to sci boff. In that case i can run TSS with a Science Team or tractor beam, but my lt comm engineer boff will have to run 2x A2B. Plus i have to buy a currently super duper expensive Quartermaster doff for the increased cooldown rate of battery use, because you will use batteries for the sci abilities as a hummer on gas :-(

Then about the transpwarp computer, that plus 2 saurian boffs(efficiency trait) and with my current points in skills i'm running the following powerlevels:

Weapon: 125/95 (capped, max = 131)
Shield : 75/55
Engine : 50/25
Aux : 55/25

Using a2b will give me very shield power and thus a better shield recharge on my covariant shield, I would like to keep that anytime possible, so any suggestions?

Ship: (fleet) long range science vessel.

This is a cheap but very effective build for a sci captain to use on one of the most iconic ships. Aim is to set up a kill by max disables and slows.

Front: 3x chroniton torpedo
back: beam array, chroniton torpedo and mine

Deflector: adapted maco (KHG)
Engine: adapted maco (KHG)
Shield: maco

Eng consoles: 2x neutronium, borg
Sci consoles: 4x grav
Tac consoles: PSW torp, alblative (or other special consoles like graviton)

Cmdr sci: TSS1, ES2, VM1, GW3
Ltcmdr sci: HE1, ES2, ST3
Ens sci: PH1

LT eng: EptS1, EptS2
LT tac: TS1, DPA1

power settings: 25/50/25/100

Doffs: 2x lab scientists for 2 copies of ST3, 3x warp theorists (energy syphon version)

Spec max in in flowC, grav, subD, partG


Your own dps is not that important, but you gain severe disable posibilities and slows because of the highly boosted gravity well and chrono spreads. The adapted maco set ensures even more aux power, and more importantly, it has subspace decompiler. This results in longer disable times for the special beam atacks and VM.

The 2 copies of energy syphon ensures a 3 x 25% chance on a fixed 5 seconds disable of any subsystem. Unfortunately, this is not prolonged with subspace decompiler. However, SubD combined with the high aux power result in a 25 seconds (out of every 30 seconds) power drain, which is also a kind of defensive boost.


More expensive versions can include the Wells timeship, Vesta, lobi temporal set: chroniton dual beam bank, tachyokinetic convertor and temporal torpedo.

im of the opinion that that ship is practically non viable. but thats proboly how i would set one up. with shield repair drones. when LoR hits, try out EPtE instead of EPtA on this, your lack of mobility will likely become much less of a problem with that. id drop the transwarp computer for some armor or another turn console. really, once LoR hits, this will be able to move much better. you could even think of running singles and turrets with a DBB up front for BO3. turn it into a bit of a battle cruiser. play around with this ship on tribble

get a resistant capA, and a capB if you can afford it. disruptor, plasma and AP is becoming more popular. some people like cov elite, its got a bit more spike soak, but less hull damage and a bit more resist i just like best.
