Anybody know if you can equip more than one copy of the aux phaser DHC's? Judging from past precedent, I'm betting not...though there's probably no point in equipping more than maybe two.

It takes almost a full minute of targeting something before you get much benefit from sensor analysis meaning that'll only be the case in STFs, invasions, and CE. Plus if you have to untarget to shoot down a heavy plasma torp or plasma sphere your analysis resets to 0.

It's funny that you say "Pvp is all but dead" , because 90% of the changes/nerfs you see here comes from that small group of crybabies..

yeah whatever, flame away....

The problem of the science class is that I only has supportive abilities.

Cruisers have better healing and Escorts do the most damage.
Cryptic has nerfed the science abilites hard in the past so that many of them don't realy have much use left. In comparison Tactical and Engineering abilities didn't have suffered so much.

This all leads to few decent uses of science ships and the science class as well. Even the usual PVE is hard for science since they don't have the fire or staying power of the other classes.

Where else would the Devs get actual information on broken abilities? You cant possibly expect a PvE'er who benefits from a broken ability to complain about it can you?

Science vessels are faster than cruisers, get awesome shields, and almost as many weapon slots. Making them quite awesomely tanky beam boats.

That is all.

Actually, cruisers and science ships have same impulse modifier. Cruisers have bonus to engine power, so in practise, science ships are the slowest ships on the same engine power level.

That may be true, but my little sci ships FEELS faster.

Personally I really like my Mirror DSSV. But alas, dps is the name of the game. Mind you, no one has ever said anything negative about me bringing my sci ship into an STF.

Except what you just said equals to "special interest groups" being manned by Pure Humanitarians .
PVP-ers have special interests just like PVE-ers . Pretending that it's otherwise is a falsehood .
I am loosing STO with each new system based update and with each removal and editing of content .
I don't know how to save her from her systems obsessed masters who seek to control and monetize me more and more .

In the News Thread discussing the Vesta, Branflakes said "yes" that you could equip more than 1 ADHC. Just that nobody knows yet if you can buy one and recall it to get more than 1, or you need all 3 versions to fully equip.
