Ok, so tonight while opening a few lock boxes, on the 5th box I was awarded a temporal science vessel... Here's my situation.

I play mostly Eng or Tac characters... I have 1 Sci but rarely play. Do I use the sci version with my Eng or Tac character or do I buy the destroyer version in the lobi store instead and either sell the sci version or give it to my sci toon.

OR would it be best to just buy one of the other lobi ships.

I don't play any PVP. just stick to the PVE aspect of the game.

any advice?

The Wells is a rather unique science ship it can be offensively powerful or fill a more supportive role with the universal LTC slot there is a whole world of possibilities i myself am a tac and used the Wells on a tac and it is a surprisingly good matchup and will tide you over till you get the Destroyer

What build do you use on your Wells?

As someone who adores the Korath (Which is just a reskinned Wells for the KDF faction) and has one for all three of her toons, I can say that Tac or Sci work best for the Temporal Science Vessel. Either combination gives you a plethora of support and offensive builds, and the ship can readily be tweaked for STFs or PVP.

Honestly, I'd even say the Wells/Korath are more handy than the Temporal Destroyers. There's just a lot more options out there for them.

I have enough Lobi for the destroyer version of the Wells but not sure if a different ship would be better for me. I could always sell or trade the science version I have for something else better suited to my Eng or give it to my Tac character

give the Wells to your tac as well as the Mobius because both have consoles that compliment each other and you can always switch between the two ships so unbox the Wells on a tac and give the same tac a Mobius to take full advantage of both ships.

Keep the wells and also get the mobius. The mobius is a more versatile/powerful ship IMO, but the wells console is invaluable, and having the wells skin to cover the fugly mobius skin is nice as well.

If you have extra lobi, grab the temporal warfare set too. The mobius with all the temporal goodies is probably the most fun ship I have flown in STO.

Cheers.

How do they fair in PVE though compared to other ships? Are they any good in STF's or other similar encounters vs borg or tholian?

I suppose it would make more sense to give them to my Tac character rather than use them with my Eng?

The Wells and Mobius have extreme durability in their respective classifications. the Wells has the best shield mod of any starship currently on STO witha whopping 1.4 shield mod other science ships came at around 1.2 to 1.3. the Mobius can tank extremely well for a escort while also giving out a nice science BOFF slotting if needed or even more firepower. These two ships are extremely versatile and the temporal warfare set compliments them. Also the 2 piece Mobius/Wells set will imobilize any enemy ship within a 5KM radius when you activate the Temporal backstep that freeze effect can save you life. Both are great ships and a match for ships like the bug.

Ok thanks all for your help.

One last question though. Use them on my Tac character or are they still viable for an Engineer?
