So I'm Fed tactical, and have decided to go for a hybrid build for space pvp trying to do damage through tac buffs etc and be good support for space through a science vessel

Currently I have

HYT I
Jam Sensors I
Scramble Sensors I
EPS
Polarize Hull.

I'm thinking of swapping Polarize with MES, but I'm not sure if it's fixed yet.

What do you guys think? Would it be pointless to fly a science ship without Sensor Scan? Should I swap Scramble with Charged Particle Burst to try and pull the klinks out of cloak?

What are your suggestions.

I also have Warp theorist and efficient as my only 2 space traits.

I think you would be better off in a cruiser and make sure you have Reverse Shield Polarity. Also remeber that Jam Sensors only work on a single target, everyone else can still fire on you. Look for abilities that will increase your staying power instead of crowd controlling the enemy.

Which certainly explains why almost every other generically related PvP thread pops up in Combat.

I do not, however, wish to fly a cruiser. I chose science vessel because I feel it could be a big support vessel, and honeslty we have enough cruisers/escorts. We need more science.

I know Jam Sensors only has 1 target. My question was whether I should swap that with MES or what good support type abilities I should pick up for T2 space.

This however is specifically related to pvp. Plus I like MOST of the people down here. It is also relating on how specifically to gear skills and abilities to defeat cloaking and support the federation. Most klingons understand a good fight and offer up advice for both sides.

Are you going to go through all the other mis-forumed posts out there and tell them where to post as well?

You do realize that all BoPs in T2 have the Reverse Shield Polarity. So in order to counter that you either have to go with a cruiser or make sure your science vessel has the most healing possible. Your build on the other hand is full of "toys", these toys are not going to help you or your team win. I am sorry if your desired style of play is not in sync with the way the pvp is currently working. In the end your choice is simple, heal/RSP and win or play with toys and lose.

TOYs, maybe, which is why I asked what powers would be best.


And it's a sign of a broken system when everyone has to take RSP just to survive, just like escorts were taking MES to avoid the alpha strike.

It's simple. Offer up a layout for a science vessel that is a support class meant to help the team or don't.

Ugh, I hate the whole "RSP is broken if everyone has to take it to the fight". So similarly Engine, Weapon and Shield batteries are also broken. Shields are broken and so are weapons. Everyone has to take em to the fight. This is not a tickle contest, adapt or die.

Just get yourself Hazard Emitters, Engineering Team, Science Team and a tactical skill of your choice. You still wont live long without RSP and you still will be the target of focus firing because everyone knows that science cant use RSP, but this way you will be more helpful to the team.
