# 1 Sci capt. Defiant
02-23-2012, 06:28 PM
I'm a sci capt. running a Defiant Tac escort retrofit. I would imagine it's the "generic" escort build. Torps, Cannons, and turrets.

I found I can make myself at least a bit survivable when I chain tac teams and run at least one EPtS and TSS. I know the defiant, being low in sci and eng abilities make it extremely reliant on the others i'm facing. HE i've noticed is a must for warp plasma and Theta. If anyone has anything that can make me better in this I'm open for suggestions. Power levels, skills, post anything you think would be relevant.

I am a Tac in the Defiant-R, and think that I can tank very well for the ship and class that I am in.

Since alpha strikes aren't really going to be your thing, I would recommend this build:

Weapons: (All one weapons type)
Fore: 3x DHC 1x Quantum Torpedo

Aft: 3x Turrets

Complete Borg set or Complete Borg set with MACO shield.

Eng Consoles: RCS, Borg Universal, then either Neutronium Alloy, or EPS.

Science: Field Generator(+35 cap to shields), Cloak.

Tactical: x4 your weapons type.

Tactical Boffs.
Ens. Tactical Team 1
Lt Cmd. Tactical Team 1, CRF, 1, APO 1.
Cmd. THY 1, APB 1, THY 3, CRF 3.

Engineering Boffs.
Lt. EPtS 1 & 2

Science Boffs.
Lt. TSS 1, HE 2.

Hope this helps get you going. Use this build, then modify it to fit your playstyle. This build is geared towards good, sustained DPS.

For power levels, you are going to want 125 weapons power. Put AUX as low as it will go, use only as much engine power as you need to get your highest defense rating, then put the rest to shields.

# 5 sci scort

My sci scort build is my main for PVP. Your science fleet and scattering field will give you more survivability than a tac in an escort but u can never hope to straight up out dps a tac escort. You have to out fly and out think your opponent. Your biggest strength is stripping your opponents ability to resist. SNB, sensor scan at the right time will render even good players helpless for a time. Its all about timing and positioning. If you'd like more helo feel free to email or PM me ingame. Goodluck
