I have a Vice Admiral Science captain already, having fun in the Recon Science ship.
I have an Engie in the 30's and a Tac captain hot on his heels, and I am am trying to decide what to do with my c-points. I have right about 2500.
I do wanna grab that Nebula retrofit for my Sci captain eventually, but right now i think i am going to prioritize getting a ship that BOTH my Engie and Tac caps will enjoy when they get a little higher.
I suspect the answer may be MVAE or Dreadnought Cruiser? What say you?
I can't speak for an Engineering captain, but the MVAM Prommie is fantastic for both Tactical and Science captains.
Yeah, i had read some positive reviews of Multi-Vector for Science guys. Maybe I'll go ahead and grab MV while its on sale now and get my Sci into it. Then get back to makin dilithium for a good cruiser for my Engie when he hits VA.
From what I have read, Dreadnought is really best for Tactical captains because of the Spinal Lance.
I read that the DPS output from it was orders of magnitude better for Tac Captains. Having not tried it for myself, I can't speak with any authority one way or another.
That having been said, just about anything with sufficient hull points (Dreadnought, Oddy, even the Retrofit Exploration) would be a good Tanking candidate for a Science Captain.
I'm in the same boat for my Klingon Tactical Officer. Its a very tough question to answer. My Fed' engie does really well in a Tier 5.5 Excel'. But thats just me.
I highly recommend a Garumba for your TAC
To the OP - I just leveled up a SCI and TAC captain and picked up the Advanced Escort with my RA tokens and it works really well for both of them in STF's - so the MVAE would be a good choice for all 3 of your Captains
I also bought a T5 Excelsior during the C-Point sale and love it! (vs Ody or Gal-X) as I prefer snappier turning cruisers (I have Free Ody and never use it)
I have all of the different Escorts between my toon's so here is my suggestion on how to spend your C-bucks
SCI - Buy your SCI an Advanced Escort by converting C-Points to Dilithium (~450)
TAC and ENG - get them a T5 Excelsior while on sale and pick up an AE for your TAC and a Fleet Escort for ENG with your RA tokens.
