What I'm looking for, is recommendations for the nastiest combination of components and skills you can apply to a Fighter, and the same for application to a Shuttle, particularly the Toron shuttle or the To'Duj fighter.
The idea being, your consoles, weapons quantity, hull and shield multipliers are so tightly constrained, I'm wondering:
How sick can you get with these? How much DPS/Survivability can you manage to squeeze out of such a limited frame? What BOFF power (ensign only, it seems) really can become OP on one of these in the right hands? (fwiw, paystore consoles included.)
I had a play with shuttles and fighters a while back, and ended up deciding that the best all-rounders were the Rozhenko/Aeon Timeships. This is due to inherent 'Sensor Analysis' and 2x BOFF slots - one Sci, one Universal (the ability of the Fighters to use DHCs pales in comparison to the extra BOFF slot)
There's some equipment that you can only use on small craft:
