I'm dusting off my Chimera, and I had a couple thoughts. most threads indicate using phasers and phaser relays to buff the phaser lotus. that's fine and well. my thought is, would flow cap and or a single tetryon tac console be effective in boosting the shield drain from the inversion beams? this is a PVE build, not PVP
Sensors indicate a caitian carrier, Sir. Excellent. Ready the Catnip Torpedoes for a full spread.
Flow caps should but you might want to verify by grabbing a couple of cheap ones off the exchange and checking that function's tooltip in space (not sector) with and without the caps. The beams aren't Tetryon and shouldn't be effected by the Tac consoles for Tet, AFAIK.
