I'm changing somethings around on my Fleet Excelsior and Fleet Regent builds after a successful test of a Mirror Vo'Quv with Aux2Bat test build.

Liberated Borg Engi Captain

Fleet Excelsior
Fore: 3x Advanced Disruptor Beams 3x[Dmg] [Acc] and Quantum [Arc]
Aft: 3x Advanced Disruptor Beams 3x[Dmg] [Acc] and Advanced Quantum 3x[Dmg] [Acc]
(aft Quantum will be switched with Kinetic Cutting Beam, purchased the beams before the 2x[Acc])

Aux Bat, Shield Bat, Red Matter, Phase thingy
Engi Consoles: Resistance of my choice, Borg, Iso Charge and an EPS MK XI (very rare)
Sci Console: 2x Field Gens MK XI (rare)
Tac: 4x Disruptor Coils MK XI (rare)

Lt.Cmdr. Tac: TT1, FAW2, TS3
Cmdr. Engi: EP2S1, Aux2Bat2, Aux2SIF3, DEM3
Lt. Engi: EP2W1, Aux2Bat2
Ensign Engi: EP2Aux1
Lt. Sci: HE1, TSS2

I had never used Aux2Bat before and I was stumped on how to set up my Mirror Vo'Quv (Engineer heavy vs normal Sci. for carriers) so I tried it out there and was pleasantly surprised, really gives beams a bite. Thanks to the minor +10 Aux, it can still launch fighters. Only including it here because it inspired me to try it out on my Excelsior.

Orian Tac Captain
Mirror Vo'Quv Carrier

Fore: 3x Polarized Disruptor Beams 2x[Acc]
Aft: 3x Polarized Disruptor Beams 2x[Acc]

Borg MK XI set

Lt.Cmdr. Tac: TT1, TT2, FAW3
Lt.Cmdr. Engi: EP2S1, Aux2Bat2, Aux2SIF3
Lt. Engi: EP2S1, Aux2Bat2
Cmdr. Sci: HE1, HE2, Energy Siphon 2, GW2 (no friends on to train 3)

Hangar: 2x Adv. Slavers (tempted to get BoPs)

Had a surprising amount of fun with this ship, its heavy on defense because my main goal was to stay alive for my fighters, but this thing was pulling all kinds of agro and was surprisingly tanky. Just wanna get some feedback.

Aux2SIF is interfering with your Aux2Bat cycle. Why not replace it with RSP2? You can focus on shield tanking instead.

I also found EptAux is somewhat unusable on an Aux2Bat build, because of how often Aux is drained. Yes, with good timing you could use it to pop your Aux2SIF, but then that interferes with your important EptS and EptW cycles. It barely gets enough time to give its aux boost before another Aux2Bat comes along and takes it all away again. You could replace EptA with an engineering team as a safety net against subsystem disable spam.

I realise for the Voquv this is a different matter, EptA is probably essential there, as is good timing.

If I need to heal hull and keep my shields up, hit Siphon/Aux Battery, Aux2SIF/HE and EP2S. I'm spamming Aux2Bat, TT1 and FAW2. For the initial run on my target, I run Siphon>>Alpha>>GW>>TT>>FAW. Seems extremely effective, nothing gets through and I have a Red Matter Cap if my shields get dropped.

Check how your TT, EptS and HE pop. What the guy above was pointing out is that your Aux2Bats will cool these down to their shared CD anyway, so you seem to have 3 redundant slots there.

You do have 3x Technician DOffs, yes? With that you should be able to do away with multiples of BO skills - except for the Aux2Bat, no?

I've been wanting to get the Fleet Excelsior just to try a Aux2Bat build.

On the Fed, yes, hence no dubs, on the KDF no. Haven't invested alot into my KDF toons, in fact deleted 2 of my 4 KDF toons. All I have left are my 2 tacs and my dozen or so Fed toons.
