Hi Sir,

I don't know a thing about it, but if you fly an Escort, and you take a Deflector, should you go heavy on the Deflectors [Def] or on the Emitters [em], or on both [def][em] ?

Thx in advance for your answers !

It depends on the skills you use.

Your Science BO's skills will be effected by your deflector selection.

If you right click your skills info it should list somewhere in there what effects that skill.

If your most often used/relied on science skill is effected by 'deflector' then that's what you want.

It all depends on what abilities you have hooked up that use either emitters or deflectors.

Science abilities are especially dependent on it.

You can also press "K" and select bridge officer skills in the combo box located in the right upper corner. All character skills (including deflector-related ones) affecting the selected bridge officer skill are highlighted then.

It depends on what skills your bridge officers use in space.

IIRC, if you use Hazard Emitters and Polarize Hull, look for [EM]. If you use Science Team, look into [DEF]
If you use Tractor Beam, look into [TB]. If you use Beam Target Subsystems or Jam Sensors, look into [SEN] or [SENA].

The bonuses deflectors give you corrospodent to Starship Operations skills, which in turn affect the effectiveness of Sciene Powers. Check the skills that are highlighted for the science powers you actually use, and find a deflector that benfits from them.

As we're trying to explain, Deflectors are nothing more then a bonus to science abilities. Look and see what your 2 science BO abilities are then pick a deflector that gives one or both of them a bonus.
