Yeah, if you have the money, the Excelsiors transwarp is certainly handy, but it kinda feels like the easy way out for me, it would be like using a transporter when running a marathon :-P

Persoanlly I think the use of transwarp during the event should fail you (inclusing warp to missions transwarps!) so you really do have to race :-P

Yep plus:-
Max drive coil + maco engine = warp 18 point something. + qsd = warp 30 point something for 30 secs unless in odyssey.

Max drive coil + omega engine = warp 10 but when using qsd = warp something can't remember i thinki its is warp 29.93 but its cool down is shortened to 30s.

There are you choices lucky. With odyssey you qsd lasts longer because of AQSD.

Or the dilithium to trade for C-points.

odyssey with Omega engine slipsteams twice as long and has half recharge. Found it far faster then transwarp.

I expected only one response. Thanks for all the great replies, posted here and elsewhere . I have a lot to research on the Odyssey it seems, It's more than just the ship that replaced the Galaxy in the ESD shipyard window.

I have 17 ships and the Odyssesy is the slowest by far even ta transwarp, so I must be doing it wrong. I will check drive coil as it is something I try to max after all the skill resets thought me that. And I guess I will keep plugging away at the Borg set. For me, it was more cosmetic than anything as I play most for role, story, fun and then combat which is sometimes fun.

Pray tell.

Please provide details on this. I have a plethora of DOFFs that are just sitting around taking up space on my ship. :p

Are you a VA?

If so I suggest you take along the Retro Borg Engine

Max out Driver Coil

and use the Odessey Class with it's Advance Slipstream system.
