# 1 An Odyssey Question...
02-21-2014, 09:06 AM
Good day all,

A question of this sort has been asked but the threads that i have read are many years outdated so i shall ask again as i am unsure. Do tactical consoles that boost weapon damage types also boost the damage output of the Aquarius combat pet and the Chevron that comes with the Odyssey?

As i have said i did come across threads of this sort but they were more about carriers and their hanger pets and also many years old.

Any help regarding this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Nope. Tactical consoles don't boost the damage of your pets.

Actually, I'm pretty sure they do if they're using the same energy type (Phaser, disruptor, etc.), which means if you're using anything other than phasers with phaser boosting consoles, then no.

That said, if you haven't already purchased the Oddy, I recommend another ship. It's pretty bad.

It might be helpful to picture Picard as Cryptic and the Borg as PWE.

You should probably offer up some examples of the other ship you'd recommend.

I will have to strongly disagree with you there. I am having loads of fun with it and its special consoles, I especially adore the Chevron Separation and the Aquarius Escort (although weak).

C-store Sovereign, Fleet Sovereign, Avenger, Fleet Avenger... any escort, to name a few.

Well, if you're having fun with it, then don't let me get in you're way. Have the most fun you can

Thank you everyone for your feedback! Much appreciated! But i'm still at odds as to what the verdict is regarding tactical consoles and if they boost pet damage.

Is there a thread out there that i missed or does someone know for a fact that they do or don't?

Kjwashington said they do but didnt seem very reassuring (no offence)

This is not ture. The Odyssey Class is the most versatile cruiser in game and it's far far away from being bad. It's a top-notch cruiser that can excell in any role required.

EDIT: I'm really not sure about the consoles because I haven't tinkered around, but I believe that it was once said that the tactical consoles can boost the deployed sections of the Oddy and the MVAE if you use consoles that boost the damage type those sections use (phaser in this case). I'm not 100% sure though, maybe you'll have better luck asking in the builds section of the forum.

This interesting. I fly an Oddyssey with my Tac and love it.

With my Romulan/Reman setup I usually take 2nd or 3rd in most of the STF's. Sometimes able to take 1st.

Will post the setup later today for an idea.

I will agree that the Aqaurius does need a power boost. And would probably be better if the energy weaponry on it and the Chevron matched what you have equipped.
