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.

Pretty much the same for the BortasQu'.
I had my Eng flying around in one of the 'free' Oddys before I left and I loved it. I was able to keep up a pretty decent amount of DPS and it's BO loadout was the perfect healboat for my playstyle.

Oh god you don't know yet do you?

Sci blows now. Like major horse *****. There's a 75 percent resist now to virtually every sci skill.

Power insulators, and Inertial dampeners, okay sensors too. between those 3 skills if you have 6 ranks in them you have like 70 percent resistance to the relevant sci skill.

Charged particle burst III.
125 aux
9 points in particle emItters
Target has 6 points in power insulators and like, Borg deflectors

MAYBE 1000 shield strip. Probably less

I think the actual numbers were 9pe vs 9pi =700 or so shield damage

Ugh.

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
