I'm going to try it out, but it's unlikely I would switch for STFs from AP [Borg] DHCs or MACO/Borg set.

I don't know if it's the same for others, but my Tactical Escort Retrofit (with mk XI MACo set) has an inertia of 70 as well.

STO Wiki says the same as you do, so it looks like I was mistaken on that. Thanks for the correction.

The buff comes from the Shield/Engine/Emitter set, so you can still have a full loadout of [Borg] weapons. Though if you don't already have Polarons, it might not be worth it.

On a standard 3xDHC + 1 top + turrets in the back escort, has anyone done the math for 3 X energy weapon console + 1 x torp console vs 4 x energy weapon consoles?

Sorry should have been clearer, I'm running AP DHCs & Turrets atm - and I just don't think the damage from the set + Polarons is going to be worth it.

I'll probably try it out with some cheap polarons just to test it though.

Welp, they were fun while they lasted. Hopefully they will have some other hilarious breakage ...

Thanks a lot for answering my questions, its good to hear that the Fleet escort is competitive, as it saves me having to spend cash on c store points and I actually prefer the Fleet Escort models!

Sorry if this is a bit off topic, but when a new player hits lvl 50 and is looking to get geared up, what should I be doing? Is it a case of buying some semi-decent equipment from the Galactic Market and then running STF? Just a few general guidelines would be good, then I can read more on the STO wiki.

*LINK* Not exactly my reaction, but close.

I had a feeling though, that they'd be nerfed. Oh well, take away more of my fun, will you...
