I have a Prefire Chamber for one of my consoles... is that worth it?
The Plasma burn is probably the least powerful proc.
For raw power: Antiproton (red) gives a +20 inherent CrtD.
I personally use Phasers because many Federation special abilities and quest reward gear simply comes in phaser form. But for the last ounce of damage, go Antiproton or Disruptor.
Prefire Chambers: They got nerfed.
Every damage-type specific console gives more +%. +26% for Mk XI blue IIRC.
But generic Prefire for Cannons or the beam stuff for Beams give LESS since Season 5 so they can no longer be recommended.
Also I generally keep Aux to sif active at all times as its also a hull damage resistance buff.
Indeed. Polarize Hull and Hazard Emitters are using the same CD and you are making good use of Omega to run away. You inspired me! Though I recently went back to torpedoes, didn't use them either for quite some time.
ENG - Emergency Power to Shields 1, Auxiliary Power to SIF 1
SCI - Sci Team 1, Polarize Hull 2
TAC - Tact Team 1, Torp HY 2, Cannon Rapid Fire 2, AP Omega 3
TAC - Tact Team 1, Torp Spread 2, Cannon Scatter Volley 2
ENG - Engineering Team 1
3 x Dual Heavy Cannons XI
1 x Plasma Torpedo Launcher XI
3 x Heavy Plasma Turrets XI
4 x Neutronium Alloy XI
3 x Plasma Infuser XI
1 x Plasma Automated Defence Turret
The two Tact Team 1s therefore are the only area I think needs improving
I got rid over overlapping CDs with the setup suggested by Vex, i.e. I no longer have 3 Teams that fight for the same CD, only 2 that I run infinitely. I miss Polarize Hull, but well, can't have everything.
if i had one, i'd have both universal consoles with engineering. if any sci craziness hits me i would just evasive out of there since i cant cure it, assuming scramble doesn't screw up evasive. any conventional damage you would weather quite well though

I've been running mine with a pretty straightforward STF layout, based around phasers - I threw the quad cannon in there. It's pretty effective although I will admit that it looks a little wrong somehow. Am kind of tempted to either try switching over to AP weapons or go to a polaron loadout just so it looks cool and canon, even if it's not one of my favorite damage types.
i have the MACO set with mine the xi and i am not too empressed whith the beam...
but i mixed the loadouts out with what most of yall said and i am much better at surviving. but the thing that sux is everyone always targets you for being in the bug ship.... i have 5 people jump me and said i wasnt poop... ummm.... lol
