There is no single best, the mva, tac escort retrofit and hec are all unique in their abilities as fart as favoring a sub class(lt com sci, eng or tac) that gives them a varied playstyle, there are some however that should probably be avoided at all costs (the aquarius I just can't find a place for)
Thanks for the reply. I also like the Steamer and MVA but run into problems with the layout.
Any reccomendations would be much appreciated.
Layout problems with the mva? You have to skill into and use that lt. Comm science offensively, flow capacitors with a energy siphon 2 combined with a few points in graviton generators for tractor beam 2 with a tractor doff(shield drain) polaron dhcs and chroniton torpedoes can really cripple a single target in pvp and destroy it rather quickly
Geez, I wish I had known about this ship before purchasing the Defiant retrofit. For just under 13$ your getting over 34000 hull, that is more than even the Tier III fleet Defiant!
Thanks for posting the link to how to build one of these ships as well! Admittedly it wouldn't be something I would use on a day to day basis but as a PVP ship I am thinking it could be comparable to the bug ship.... (and better looking too).
My vote goes to the Breen Chel Grett Warship. It has the turn rate of an escort, 8 weapon slots, 36k base hull, and a universal ensign slot for you to play with. Best of all, it's free if you've been doing your holiday daily winter race. Its energy dissipator console is just icing on the cake.
