Long story short - is the vibra-lirpa any good, at least compared to the vibra-bat'leth? I've never been a fan of lirpas at all, and usually picked a sword or bat'leth for my Federation characters, but it seems that a vibra-lirpa's my only option for a pseudo-light weapon for the Feds at this time, so I'd like some input as to whether or not it's worth it to try to grab one on my alts.
I do enjoy the vibra-bat'leth I've got on my Klingon, I will say that much.
I just used the winter woderland Pulse Lirpa to beat Karu,Kan to a pulp in around 40
secs in the last station ops section of boldly they rode, Cardassia replay for Shard of possibilities and free lobi if you say your prayers to the prophets.
