# 1 Breen builds?
12-18-2012, 08:23 PM
What is everyone planning for their Breen ship?

Currently thinking of:

Breen 3 Pcs set. (Engines, Deflector, Shields)

In Front:
3x Advance Fleet Dual Heavy Disruptors (yes yes I know in STO they use Polaron but in DS9 it was Disruptors).
1x Advance Fleet Photon Torpedo.

Rear:
2x Advance Fleet Disruptor Beam Banks.
2x Advance Fleet Disruptor Turrets.

Tactical Consoles:
4x Disruptor Induction Coils (Blue's or Purples) Either Mk X or Mk XI (depends what I can afford)

Science Consoles:
1x Ionized Gas Sensor
1x SubSpace Jumper
1x Emitter Array MkX or MkXI (Purple) (I extend shields all the time as a Engineer)

Engineering Consoles:
3x Neutronium Alloy Mk XI (Purple)

Still have a few days to pick up the consoles I don't have yet etc. Which will be good.

What are you guys thinking about?

I assume you mean beam arrays. cause a Dual beam bank can't be mounted in a rear weapon slot

Why the beam arrays? Your compromising your forward damage. This thing is basically an escort with 8 weapon slots.

I'm thinking that 8th weapon slot is the perfect place for a Tricobalt mine launcher. Maybe find room for a dispersal pattern for it, too.

Other than that, I'm going to make a general energy-draining escort build, probably with polarized disruptor DCs front and turrets rear. I don't have a Tholian ship, I'll have to see if I can afford one for that torpedo launcher, too. And since this will be on a KDF character, of course I'll make room for the Leech.

Not sure about the Breen set. It's a free energy drain power, but pretty worthless otherwise. I might try it, but will probably end up with a fleet shield, engine, and deflector.

D'oh your absolutely right.

Because I tend to over shoot my targets, and being in a cruiser that hasn't matter much (using Dual Disruptor Beam banks in front).

Gives me near even DPS any way I get attacked, so in like Battle Royal (the foundry mission) being in the middle of 3 enemy ships is okay, I don't need to worry about turning too fast etc and can hit most things around me easily.

I went with three Polarized Disruptor Dual Heavy Cannons and a Disruptor Dual Beam Bank (fore) and four Disruptor Turrets (aft). All tac consoles are the disruptor coils, borg console, etc. I like the fact that the turrets hammer away while I turn around for another barrage from the fore weapons. Is my DPS the highest? Probably not, but the green disruptors look very natural on this ship. I've equipped the MACO set (sometimes rotate in the Borg set), and overall am happy with the build.

Anyone else care to share their build?

What episodes have them firing Disruptors in the show? I only recall them using the energy dissipator and then following up with torps (which were white), and Memory Alpha only lists that as the armament. No reason not to go disruptor, just curious.

It was mentioned in star trek generations that the breen are one of the species that use disruptors.

Nope Torpedoes were Green in Changing Face of Evil. But your right in DS9 all they showed were torpedoes.

I've been tempted to make a torpedo boat, but it wouldn't be too fun.

And nikephorus is right, the Breen, Klingon's and Romulans are all known to use Type 3 disruptors.

This is true, however at that moment Riker and Worf were discussing ground weapons.
