Hmmm... I actually find that interesting... might have to try something like that

Just out of curiosity, is there enough info to know which class fares the best in this ship?

Probably tactical, but I'm science and I like it so far.

I would change your ENG Boffs to:

ENG Comm: EPTW 1 > EPTS 2 > ET 3 > Aux to SIF3

I think you should add at least 1 resistance console, and Aux to SIF3 as I listed above.

If you feel that you really don't need or want Eng Team 3, then Grab RSP 2.

Yes, the D'Kora has its own interior.

This is a PvE build. I consistently put out 4500 dps using this build as a Tac captain.

You need two builds one for PVE and the other for PVP.

PVE I go with DHCs.

TAC BO with cannon skills

I mainly play STFs and this setup works great, gives me the DPS that is required.


PVP Beams

TAC BO with Beam Skills

I found the turn rate to slow in PVP to use DHCs, but when I did try DHCs in PVP it had amazing results.
However; everyone soon flew around me after a few rounds and mitigated the heavy hitters(DHCs).

I'm setting up my D'Kora for PvE right now with the DHCs. What kind of PvP setup do you recommend?

Using it with

Front: 3x DHC, 1xQTorp
Rear: 4x Turret

Now the BOFFS:

LtCmdr Tac: TT1, CRF1, CRF2
Ens Tac: TS1
Cmdr Eng: EptW1, EptS2, RsP2, Aux2Sif3
Lt Eng: EptW1, Epts2
Lt Sci: HE1, TSS2

2x Conn officer (Tac team variant, 1 purp 1 blue, brings tactical team cd down to 15 sec)
2x Projectile officer (Purple, dunno if these are useful with just one torp)
1x Conn officer (Evasive type, Purp)

I can certainly line her up for cannon volleys in battle mode. Aux2Sif is there because I'm allready missing ET. Could probably do away without the EpTW's but what would I use then? Other than that it seems to be the sweet spot for the boat for PVE. While its also possible to use CSV1 and 2, I went for CRF this time. And it works.

Bought the ship from the exchange on Friday and having a blast with it running STF's with my SCI Captain (specced from Dragon Flagship skill planner as reference)

Cannon Boat (Phaser)

Front: 1x QC, 3x DHC
Rear: 3x Turret, 1xH'Peng Torp

LtCmdr Tac: TT1, CRF1, CRF2
Ens Tac: TT1
Cmdr Eng: EptW1, EptS2, Dem2, Aux2Sif3
Lt Eng: EptS1, RSP1
Lt Sci: HE1, TSS2


Beam Boat (AP)

Front: 1x DBB, 3x BA
Rear: 3x BA, 1xH'Peng Torp

LtCmdr Tac: TT1, APB1, BO3
Ens Tac: FaW1
Cmdr Eng: EptW1, EptS2, Dem2, Aux2Sif3
Lt Eng: EptS1, RSP1
Lt Sci: HE1, TSS2

I've been alternating between using 2 piece Omega (Shield + Engine) with 2 Piece Borg (Deflector + console) and 3 Piece Borg with MACO MK XII Shield trying to find the best combo. (I wish the FED"s had an equivalent KHG Engine as it is so much more maneuverable than the Omega engine on my Klink Cruisers!)

I swapped from beams to cannons recently and the pve damage the d'kora can put out is really impressive. It's not quite an escort, and I certainly wouldn't use cannons in pvp, but it's a great combination of damage and survivability in stfs.

I've been running
3x DHC + quantum torp in the front with 4x turrets in the back


I'm thinking of equipping 2 purple conn officers with the tac team skill and swapping the second TT1 to TS1, and also finding something else to put in the place of EWP1. EWP worked well with beams because I could swoop past a parade of borg laying it down while still putting out decent damage, while with cannons my damage really gets cut down while trying to place the cloud.
