I usually stick with Escort ships but I am thinking of getting a long range science vessel since I hit Captain, mainly because the Intrepid class is one of my favourite Star Trek ships but I have some doubts about how effective it would be and I have no experience of fitting or flying science ships.
Does the tactical officer lack any skills that this class would really benefit from or can I make it work? I would also welcome any tips on the skills I might need for my bridge officers and some tips on fitting it and the best way of flying it.
I'm currently levelling up a Tactical character who has just hit Captain. I've been putting her in Science vessels with the ultimate aim for a T'Kyr Science Ship. It seems to be working pretty well at the moment with the inherant tactical abilities making up for the lack of firepower.
Sure you won't have maximum DPS but it does make a more interesting career choice.
