Remove Boarding Party off your ship. I don't care what your doffs say, and what heretic said. It's still worthless, that's valuable healing or actual dps you are sacrificing there... for what fluff? Rp? Ditch it.
Don't believe me? Look at the other choices for those boff slots. BP1 there's EPTS2. Which should be a No Duh skill. There's ET2 again a no duh option. RSP1 aka the green diaper to give you an emergency shield heal post Sub Nuc. Extend Shields 1 incase you some how can't fit 2 or 3 into your build. Which on it's own makes your team mate very very difficult to kill, oh and it can't be sub nucced away. DEM1, this one's a meh skill but at least it will actually work. BP? Not going to happen, Tac team alone gaurantees this. Then there's the whole fact that it's very rare for a BP team to actually make it to the target, let alone damage a critical subsystem at the proper time.
BP2 vs good skills, Extend shiels 2.. it's like ES1 but way stronger. ET3, ditto it's ET2 but way better. ASIF2 great if you want to run Extends 3. Warp Plasma 1, there incase you want to run Extend3, or ASIF3. DEM2, much better than DEM1 great for frying people through shields and maintaining very high pressure.
BP3, please... here's a list of better powers. Extend 3, Warp Plasma 3, DEM3, ASIF3. Heck this one is a crap power in of itself... and it's still better. RSP3.
RSP2 or 3... any use they have is served by what 1 does for you. And it eats up critical heal slots.
EPTS3 on non tac cruisers. Waste of a heal slot, or damage slot, or control slot. Especially since engis have access to Rotate Shield Frequency and Sci have access to Science Fleet.
Jam Sensors. Ditto. TSS1, 2, Hazard Emitters, Tractor Beam Repulsor1, Tractor Beam, Sci Team. And you want to run a skill that literally does nothing but help your team mates die faster (at best case scenario), or doesn't even actually deter your enemy? (sci team clears it.. oh and so does you shooting the target)
Tachyon Beam 1... seriously? Take it off.
And for the sake of the gaming gods Balance your shields. "my shields mean nothing!" of course they don't because you have no desire apparently to keep them up.
We're 2 years in... you guys should know better by now
Also, stop calling me a zombie I still throw out Extends and Hazards when I'm being focused!

On second thoughts, I'll run whatever I feel like, Maybe to annoy you I'll load Boarding Party 1,2 and 3
It's just good general PvP habit to not run skills like that; those BPs will get sniped down faster than you can launch them, and you're actually shafting your teammates by 'wasting' a slot and not having other more valuable skills there.
