I just have a question, i'm a level 50 with the best shields, engines and deflector in the game. I'm trying to figure out the best and most powerful set up for my cruiser and my fleet escort. Some randon person was able to destroy me in my cruiser in under ten seconds. i want to know what i'm doing wrong or what she is doing right?

What consoles have you got, they're also a factor in how well your ship does?

This sounds more like a PVP question than anything, and there are some very good threads in that section. But as said, more information would also be helpful.

Proof that Skillz > Gear. And saying you have the best doesnt really make it so. In STO there really is no "best" gear its all in your set up and play style. Unless you give all your build and ship info as well as tactics and play style people will just be throwing random info that prolly wont do you any good.

Go to the fed shipyard/gameplay forum for these types of things, much more helpful.

Gear is only a piece of the equation, besides -- there is no real "BESTEST GEAR EVAR" -- there are several combinations of MACO/Omega/Borg that work, depending on the rest of your build.

So, you have the "best" shields, deflector and engine. What consoles are you using? What weapons?

What's your profession and build (Captain's skill allotment)?

What skills do your Boffs have?

What Doffs do you have equipped?

Are you trying to make a "universal build" for both the Cruiser and Escort or are they separate characters? If you *are* trying to make a "universal" captain, do you at least have two sets of boffs?

Look for Mavario's thread on Cruisers in the PvP section.

many helpful tips and build ideas from PvP'ers across the game.

Just from your "description":
What you did wrong -> BOFFs
What she did right -> BOFFs

BOFFs make or break everything, way more than gear could.
Add in Teamplay as a second factor, it depends more on your team than on yourself.
