Also, now having looked over the C-Store, how are the Oddy/Bortas variants? I'm looking at maybe picking up the Science Oddy for my Engineer. Those Worker Bees do anything good? How's the omgawesomecannon or whatever it is on the Bortas?
Oh sorry, I missed this.
I tested them and the Sci Oddy and Sci Bortasqu' were the better ones due to having Science Analysis in addition to the console set ups. Tac Bortasqu looks interesting as well for the 5 Tac Consoles. And Engi Bortasqu for it's 5 Engi Consoles.. That's really about it there..
Other wise the Bortasqu's BoP pet is better then the Odyssey's Fighter Pet. The Odyssey is better then the Bortasqu with it's Saucer Seperation for turn rate increase. The Bortasqu's Teleporter is interesting.
The Odyssey can pretty much get away with needing only 2 Consoles (Worker Bees + Saucer Sep) while the Bortasqu might actually need all 3 because those consoles are nice.
Both are cruisers though. So they suffer from Turn rate. The Bortasqu suffers abit more.
I'm sure there are more experienced pilots out there that could tell you more or have better opinions then mine I'm afraid, because I'm limited abit on what I was able to see on Tribble, since I don't have the 8,000 C-store points to buy all 6 Ships.
Guess I won't be touching my Sci then. Just when I was starting to have so much fun with 2x TachBeam 3, Cannons/Turrets + Glider.
Let me guess - the Tachyon/Siphon Drones will still eat you alive and leave you defenseless?
I think tachyon drones took a hit. By all accounts though, energy siphon drains did not. Oh don't disregard science completely. With rsp lasting from 8-19 seconds at a time subnuclear beams are in high demand. Just as far as sci powers not directly affected would be heals and like psw and tbr
