Lt. Sci: Transfer Shield Strength I, Polarize Hull II
Ensign Sci: Sci Team 1

Boffs are a bit redundant. I need to get rid of Sci Team 1, and some Scatter Volley / Rapid Fire
Oh my I would suggest you go stop by the PvP forums and read some escort threads. What works there does better in STFs. Here is some quick help.

Plasma Manifolds are junk dump them... and put armour on I think I read you did that good.

Sci ya field gens go here.

All the cannon rapids and scatters are a complete waste... All you really need is 2 copies. If your a tac use tac init to keep the highest version up for as long as possible then tag team them till tac init is back up...

Honestly I would dump the torp as well... the only way torps will out dmg an all nrg setup is if you heavily commit to it with 3 torp doffs... and multiple launchers to get a torp rapid fire going.

What you might want to try is... 4 DHC ... 3 Turrets
Tac Team - Delta 1 - Scatter 2 - Rapid 3
Tac Team - Beta 1 - Omega 1
Polarized Hull 1 - TSS 2
Hazards 1

That is a good basic Escort setup for PvP... or STFs. Omega Delta Beta gives you a perfect always on attack pattern role... and will boost your dmg, and everyone elses if you use beta and delta properly. (cast delta on the tac cubes targets... keeps your teammates up and the fire off you, and applies a nice -30 to the borg shooting at the person you delta)

I would run Rapid Fire 3 as its the highest single target cannon skill... and with tac init you can use it to pound on the bosses... use CSV 2 when there are multi probes ect.

Standard STF escort setup:

Tac4 (point): TT1 CRF1 CRF2 APB3
Tac4 (area): TT1 CSV1 CSV2 APB3

tac3 (patterns): TT1 TS2 APO1

Sci: HE ESS or Jam Sensors (to taste)

Kang duty/probe duty use Tac4(area). For everything else Tac4(point)

Escorts with eng1 slot can use combo EPTS1 x 2 + RSP
Escorts with tac1 slot can use 2 x TS

Good idea to get a pretty Hamlet doff off exchange, 2 of them reduce cooldown on TT so you can only pack 1 copy of TT, and run 2 x TS, or THY.
