# 1 Carrier for Sci Captain?
11-02-2012, 08:47 PM
I've been trying to find the right ship for my Sci captain. I had an RSV but it wasn't working out very well?I've realized that science ships don't really suit my play style very well. I do better when I'm more of a "lone wolf"?I do a lot of STF's and with that you never know if you're going to have support or not, even if the team is more coordinated. The problem with Sci ships I've found is that they're support vessels, and really don't function well without a cruiser or escort to back them up. I was thinking, maybe I should start saving my Zen for an Atrox carrier. I have the heavy escort carrier and Vo'quv carrier, so I know I like carrier play, but is the Atrox carrier a good choice for a Sci captain? I would just get it and see, but it is rather expensive and I don't want to waste my points on a bad ship if it's not worth it.

Personal opinion:

If you want a good sci vessel, wells or orb weaver. But as carriers go, I would personally go with a recluse as opposed to an atrox. It's a little tankier, and has 10 consoles as opposed to 9. So if you got 60 mil ecs lying around, have at it.

My 2 ecs. (No you may not have the other 58,999,998 =P)
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

Problem is a Recluse is something like $200+ dollars for a single character unlock while the Atrox is $25 for any and all Fed characters he cares to use it on.

Personally, I'm a huge fan of the Intrepid retrofit. Certainly suits my style of team play + going solo if my team abandons me

Suprised that nobody suggested to you to wait for the Vesta. Sounds like a ship with your name on it.

Exactly. Wait a week or two, the vesta is a beast without any weakness. The tac variant in particular is about as "lone wolf" friendly as you can imagine.

Forgot about the Vesta. Probably worth waiting for. I'll see if it's as much of a beast in practice as it looks on paper when it comes out. I would get the tholian carrier but it's very hard to get a hold of.
