Hello Folks!

I've recently picked up a the Steamrunner Escort and I was hoping somebody could recommend a build for me, I've been looking at the Patrol Escort as they seem pretty similar, I am a Engineer officer.

It has the following

x1Commander Tactical
x1Lt Commander Tactical
x2 Lt Commander Engineering
x1 Ensign Science

My play style is very much "Hit & Run" although any recommendations will certainly be appreciated, thank you for taking the time to read this


Kind Regards

With that Eng setup, it just seems like it wants either dual Aux2Bat + Technician DOFFs, dual EPTS2, or dual Aux2Struc + dual EPTS1. Make an absolute unkillable always-buffed extra-tanky escort out of it. The extra hull and shields just add to that. End up with almost cruiser-level toughness plus escort-level offense.

For mine, I opted for the torpedo boat offensive. Cheap setup to see if I enjoy the fully kinetic combat style.
All photons (quick reload) with mines and a torp at the back. Dispersal Pattern Beta III, then the usual High Yield and Tac Team skills.
Science and Engineer boff's are setup for self repair and shield restore mostly.
All power to Shields, then engines.

Makes for very quick STF runs through eg. Khitomer, where the large stationary, and more importantly shiedless, targets are eliminated with much haste. Just as long as the rest of the team can take out the usual compliment of Spheres, probes, BoPs, etc

Tempted to move onto Quantums or Tricobalts. Tried a similar setup in the past using an Escort Retrofit on my Borg Engineering alt, with a full Tricobalt setup. Critical 400k damage from 1 mine launch using Dispersal Pattern Beta III.

With Engineering Team now curing Scramble Sensors, on top of fixing systems taken offline (like Tholians love to do) and spike healing, I like having it even with 2x Tac Teams.

3x [Borg] MK XII Turrets

Consoles:
Engineering:
2x Neutronium Mk XI blue

Team Fortess
Shield capacity console

I went with:
Tac. Cmdr.: TT1, CSV1, APO1, CRF3
Tac. Lt.Cmdr.: Spread 1, APB1, HY3
Eng. Lt.: Engi Team, RSP1
Eng. Lt.: EptS1, Aux2SIF1
Sci. Ensign: HE1

Also using Photon Torps (Fleet Adv. Accu.) over quantum torps.

Really works out will and with EptS1, 2x Field Gens MK XI blue and Team Fortress I don't miss TTS2 at all.
