Coming back from work, seeing the threads....

Guess I wont be trying this build anymore. Ive already told them in a tribble thread if this goes live, I wont be playing. Got no reason to. Im a caster in most games. Sniper in CoD. I grew up with Voyager, so yeah no reason to play if Im ineffective, not having fun, and flying ugly ships. Maybe my wallet can give them the silent treatment.

Ill be keeping an eye on the release notes though, in case they change their mind.

I honestly don't know if their are 8 valid sci abilities to actually use on the Intrepid. Apparently the DI nerf was an error, so so I am reading that Cyptic are going to look into it, but untill then..........

Does this build work well with Elite STF's and do you have any more recommendations for Elite STF's only? I don't play PvP.

It very good in Infected, brilliant in Cure, and holds its own in KA.

Hello Cygone,

Before reading this thread i was wondering wich was a very good setup for stripping out shields as much as possible with a science ship, i went "near" to your setup but never tought at the dual tractor beam with the purple doff for removing shields, thanks a LOT for this, i tought was a weak bonus (it states a very low amount) but when used it becomes great.

I started up a new fed sci character just for working on a shield stripper build and i tryed to adapt it to all the ships i'm using since lvl 20 (nebula) and lvl 30 (bellerophon).

Obviously i will get the full effect only with the proper ship (intrepid retrofit) but i can clearly state that even with the lvl 30 intrepid the results are very nice, i use to make mostly pvp and missioning with my friends so DPS against hull is not a problem and for the bellerophon i have modified the build as following:

BOFFS:

Lt Tac: Tactical Team, Beam Overload 2
Lt Eng: EPtS 1, RSP 1
Ens. Eng: EPtS 1
Cmd. Sci: Tractor Beam 1, Tachyon Beam 2, Tachyon Beam 3, Charged Particle Burst 3
Lt.Cmd. Sci: Tractor Beam 1, Hazard Emitters 2

DOFFS:

2x Purple Conn Officers for reducing tactical team recharge to 15 seconds (gives me 66% uptime of automated fast shield transfer, this increas survaivability a LOT and increase dps too)
1x Purple tractor beam officer
1x Tactyon beam officer (reduce turn rate 50% when using tacyon beam, good in pvp)
1x i don't remember

Weapons Loadout

3x Dual Tetryon Beam Banks (alternative 2x Dual Tetryon Beam Banks, 1 Harg'peng)
3x Tetryon Beam Arrays (i know it does not shoot while i'm facing forward but at this level my weapon power does not allow me to fire 6 weps togheter at end game it will)

The results of this build are very good, considering i'm a pretty experienced pvp player i'm pretty good at keeping my target in front arc, over about 20/25 matches i always ended up first or second as damage dealer and even very tanked targets that were hard to take down for my mates went down like butter as soon as i stripped their shields.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions, i will try "again" the 3x torpedo build but at the moment i feel more efficent with dual beams in front.

I ended up trying a "prototype" build. Blue, not purple Doffs and Polaron turrets.

I thought it was reverse. Raw damage output is excellent, 4500ish on KA or Infected. I can solo entire sides if no one wants to help (although I think thats more of a matter of just being able to tank the Elite Cubes as a power drain build works as well)

Im trying to get the engine tech though, so that is Cure. You need more crowd control. I guess you could delegate that to someone else, but I feel as the science, I should be doing more of that. Without TBR or GW, you cant slow down multiple enemies. Having Chroniton mines helped a bit

IMHO, Id rather let the escorts deal more of the damage, and I control the field.

Its sure fun in the rest of PvE.
