Oh yes, the Dreadnought. Yet another ship that cannot turn, so has no real usefulness for those cannons ().

As for the Vesta, how well would a Science ship work for a Tactical? And does it give any advantages that compensate for forcing me into a Phaser build?

I completed a 2-man CSE, ISE, and KASE, Optionals included. And I soloed Winter Invasion.

what forcing? when i get mine, i'm decking it out in full plasma, including elite scorpions in the hangar

and there's a tac variant with 4 tac console slots, though as a science ship, it's still science boff heavy

What I mean by forcing is that the Vesta comes with Phaser Cannons that operate on Auxiliary power.

yeah, what's your point? they're not attached to the ship; you can take them off and put other weapons on

The Vesta set does have that Quantum shield that acts like the Kar'Fi Phase Shift in that it make you immune to all damage, but unlike the Phase Shift, you cannot fire your weapons. which may be a hindrance.

...I have yet to hear someone say that a Vesta is good for a tac.
I am the STO Lorax. I picked myself up and left, until the day the fun is replanted.

R'Mel is Tac and the Odyssey is an amazing ship for a Tac.

Also, in other news, I shall be bum-rushing T5 Omega thanks to Izzy. Then after I get about another 3 mil(somehow) I shall bum-rush T5 Rommy.

So far, the Multi-Vector, then one Module to get the Fleet Version has the most votes. Thoughts?
