I've been hit by a rather nasty boarding party before.
Usually they never catch me but I was tractor beamed at the time.
I also just used Tactical Team. Then I got subnuced and boarding party-ed at the same time.
Result 1 minute and 30 second cooldown on EVERYTHING!

Oooh ahhh, interesting. It makes me fantasize.....

imagine a "?ber disable build" with a sci captain in a D'kyr/ nebula / ugly fleet rsv retrofit / fleet dssv / Orb weaver equiped with following
-viral matrix:
-photonic shockwave
-boarding party (maybe 2x)
-subnuc
-sub system targeting
-front beam array and chroniton torps
-aft phaser turrets

even worse: Klingon sci captain in the Vo'Quv / fleet corsair flight deck cruiser / recluse carier equiped with marauding fource

But seriously, isn't the real question why the Engineer offeinsive abilties, including Boarding party, are so comparatively useless? Shouldn't that be fixed?

It and Cynicism III were.

+70 percent Cynicism damage
+30 Sarcasm damage.

Then you breed it with Text[CrtD]X3 and you get a Mav!

Really not sure how many times people have to repeat that Eng "offeinsive" abilities are just fine. It's like you're always hosting a party on your own bridge and no one's invited, dude.

Okay, then show me hot to take down an escort with a cruiser loaded with Aceton Beam, Boarding Party, Directed Energy Modulation and Emergency Power To Weapons.

Bonus points of you can do it with an engineer.

Directed modulation should be enough.

No, of course all must be loaded, as it is claimed that all the engineer offensive powers are just okay. If that is the case, a build with all of them should be awesomely offensive, right?

So, let us try it out.
