Finally hit level 50, and am going to get the Defiant retrofit. I'm an Engineering captain, and usually play the tank role, broadsiding people with phasers, tractoring them adn then flying past at point blank with ejecting plasma, or running around healing shipmates. But I fancy a change, so was wondering if anyone could suggest a good setup for the defiant retro? Weapons, consoles, boff skills etc? My idea on playing this little guy is to be geared towards maximum speed and maximum weapons.
there are threads about very good defiant builts here already. But you can basically go with the standard escort built with 3 DHC and quantums and turrets aft, or add a DBB for beamoverload and or fire at will or target any subsystem.
In my experiance DBB with BO 3 works best for tactical captains but give it a try...its a nice bursty entrance into battle after decloaking.
further use the engi and sci BOFF slots only for heals...HE 1, TSS 2, RSP 1, EPtS 1.
