Hello,
I am now at the point where I have tried multiple ships and characters what seems to fit me best is Engineer + Atrox carrier.

I enjoy story pve and do the end game elites. My char has completed the romulan rep system and is at Tier 4 on the Omega side.

What I am looking for is advice to streamline my ship without going the fleet equipment way (I am in a fleet with my wife and one other rl friend so it will take a long time to get the starbase up to a good level)
I want my ship to be good for everything not just Borg

Here is my current ship build

Fore 2* Polarized Disruptor Beam Array MkXII [Crth] [Dmg] Romulan Hyper-Plasma Torpedo Launcher

Aft Polarized Disruptor Turrent MK XI [CrtH] Polarized Disruptor Beam Array MkXII [Crth] [Dmg] Kinetic Cutting Beam MKXII

Hangar Elite Scorpion Fighters

Assimilated set eng/def/shield MKXI (no idea which ones to go for after this)

Devices Red Matter

Science consoles
Universal Assimilated Module Universal Isometric charge Power insulator Mk XI Field Generator MK XI

Engineering consoles
Neutronium Alloy Mk XI Electroceramic Hull plating XI Field Emitter Mk XI

Tactical Console Disruptor Induction coil Mk XI * 2


I do not mind doing missions or buying later omega items (just hit Tier 4) to finish of the ship.

Any Advice appreciated.

If you are PvE only, change your weapons out to DHCs and Turrets. Then slaughter borg.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder.

DHC? on a ship that turns like a brick ? Did not even realize a carrier could use them.

Yeeeah... borg don't move much. If they do, it's not terribly fast. Besides, if you run danubes, you get tractor beams to help you line them up. Combine that with the CC capability of an Atrox due to it's science slots, you don't really need to worry too much about NPCs escaping your line of fire.

Well I have no issue giving this a try will have to reconfigure my science officers for CC (use them mostly for heals at the moment)

Is the Danube really that good, the Elite scorpions with the heavy plasma do quite good dps.

Welcome to what many people and I think is the best ship in the game!

My build is a little different because I am a Tac captain, but the setup is about the same.

Now I just got to find that build...

This was to a different post about changes that may have affected season 7.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sounds good. I haven't been able to test it since the new changes in season 7 because my PC wont let me on. This was before the Borg nerf so I may change that. But in PVE this was a great build. Rarely died in Elite and could DPS with almost all escorts.

3-peice Borg with MACO shield is the best.

Front: 3x Phaser DHC, depending on the day I sometimes throw a Quantum here.

Aft: 3X Phaser Turrets

Tac: TT 1, CRF 1 if you have cannons. If not then get one of the Attack Patterns.

Eng: EPtW 1, RSP 1, AUXtSIF 2. You can switch RSP for something else, but it is great against alpha strikes.

Sci: HE 1, TSS 2, TR 2. TR is up to you, I am thinking of changing it for PO and trying that.

Sci: HE 1, TSS 2, Anything here, ( I have PH 2 and TSS 3 right now.) GW 3.

Consoles: Eng is Neutronium armor.

Sci is Field Generators and the Borg console.

Tac is Phaser consoles

Hangers: I just use Prigtures.

Sorry about the bad spelling. Most terms used in STO are not in auto-correct or are not real words. If you have any questions just ask away!

I have yet to test the new fighters from the Romulus tree yet so they may or may not be better than what I have right now.

Also, DHC are the best weapons for a carrier in PVE. They are good for the same reason that escorts use DHC because you can do a whole lot more extra DPS than beams. Learn to use the ship as well as you can. Meaning learn where you need to be, if you can plan out where the enemies will be and you are already facing that direction then you will melt face with you DHC and fighters.

You are a TANK, but you are also able to out DPS escorts with practice!!

Good luck to you and good hunting!

Thank you this looks very interesting but yes I would give the Elite scorpion fighters a try they have Plasma turret, Dual plasma cannon plasma torpedo and special ability High yield torpedo I

Basically every now and then your 12 scorps launch 12 heavy plasma torpedo which can really make your day.
