So, I'm redoing the one 2800 mission where you have to disable the clusters under DS-9 before going to the worm hole.

I just did the mission and got the Deflector and now I want the shields.

Knowing how much of a pain those swarms are, I put my Point Defense Turret on my shuttle and this basically one-shots those Jem'Hadar fighters that but you while you disable the things under DS-9.

My MK-X Phaser Beam Array doesn't even do that. Even my MK-X rare Quantum Torpedos are no one-shot kill, but this turret is...

Not complaining but what is the deal with this thing? I got it when I bought one of the Commander Escort refits.

All three swarmers groups destroyed in less than 6 seconds with it. Like a BOSS!

It works great, and makes a nice finishing attack against larger taregets once the shields are down (and use a tractor beam to get the target to stand still)... But then there's that 3 minute cool-down, as well as limited range...

Is this the Thunderchild console, or the other one from "way back when" that was exclusive for some reason or other?

The Point Defense Turret has special damage modifiers for smaller crafts like fighters and and frigates...gets a huge boost against fighters and shuttles.

I have the exclusive one from collectors edition, but that is a set damage
amount. Does not scale to my knowledge.

I love the Thunderchild PDS, that's the only C-store ship I've bought so far and that console goes on every ship I get.

It's also crazy useful in the shuttle missions like the Vault and the Gamma Quadrant one - when the native creatures turn hostile and you have to kill them the PDS just evaporates them in seconds

Can anyone tell me if the turret you use for the thunderchild has to be a phaser turret? Or can I use any weapon type with the console?

The Thunderchild PDS is a Phaser weapon.

I have it too, very worthwhile. I seldom use it, but whenever i'm doing FvK I slot it to massacre the klingon cheese. Works on fighters, dronespam, russian satellites, etc. Then I evasive away, cloak, swap it back out, and come back with my alpha build.
