LtC Sci: Sci Team 1, Hazard II, TSS III
Cm Sci: Tractor Beam I, Tac Beam II, Tykens Rift II, Gravity Well III

Oh, I should add that my ens slot is actually a lt commander so I can flip out my TSS and Hazard if the need arrises...

Another note, I also use the armor. In some of the STF's, especially Kitomer...it is very useful. There is nothing like getting the Donatra ship to target you..activate armor...wait for it...oh...only 2500 damage..haha
Could you be so kind so as to post your console layout, or PM it to me, i've foun dthis quite useful but i'd like to get the most out of it

thanks

Consoles, divided by area:


Eng: Ablative Deployable Armor, Ablative Armor, RCS
Sci: Assimilated Module, Shield Emitters (or Collimator), Particle Generator, Graviton Generator
Tac: Phaser Relay, Quantum Torp

All are Mark XI or higher

I Also Use:

Aegis Deflector
Assimilated Transwarp Engines
Aegis Covariant Shield

Because this will give you 2 of the Borg Set & 2 of the Aegis Set thus you recieve: Thoron Field & Auto-regenaration on the hull.

Armour works fine for me too.

Best possible engine deflector shield etc set up borg consol, borg engine, delflector and maco shield give you best defence for any build , due to auto heals and resists.

Sadly for PvE it's much better use an Escort just now, particularly in STFs a sci ship just can't do enough Damage it's a liability, the sci skills, grav well, tachyon, cpb, tykens, tractors / repulsors etc just simply don't make up for this lack of DPS , an escort equipped with double cannons is far more use to the team .

See the PvE escort thread for load out, I have an escort fully equipped for PvE I just switch into at one click if I am doing PvE and keep my sci ship for PvP.

Sometimes, if I find that my pugs are struggling at keeping the Nanite Spheres away in Infected or can't protect the time portal in KA, I throw a BO with GW 1 and TBR 1 onto my MVAE.

Bam, my Escort is now a ghetto Sci ship.

His point is completely valid, there's no reason to use anything other than an Escort for PvE.
