If your looking for an excellent weapon to defend against those annoying Siphon Drones first complete the Mission involving Mr. Wolf.

Once finished you will receive some nice items that can't be used until the rank of Rear Admiral has been achieved.

One weapon however the Omni-Directional Anti-Proton Beam Array can be used on any ship.

It is an excellent weapon to use because it has 360 degree firing arc as well as being able to track multiple targets at once.

Once the Siphon Drones have been deployed simply fire the weapon and it will destroy up to two of the closest drones on the first shot.

mr. Wolf = ambassador worf?

and honestly the weapon isn't that great...not usefull on an escort with cannons, and not usefull on a broadsiding beam cruiser...

however, if you happen to have a sci vessel with antiproton DBB up front, this weapon is excellent as a rear weapon.

Keep in mind that the 2p set bonus of the Obelisk set grants you 10% + AP damage. This can make up for the slightly lower dps of the beam.

I think I just figured out what the OP meant to say: The Omni-Directional Anti-Proton Beam Array is level-scaling, and so can be used even if you are level 10.

It keeps increasing damage as you level, so should be a great accessory for leveling chars. Though, I don't think there are AP tac consoles below MK IX(if even that low), but since going mixed-energy is less of an issue at lower levels, it's worthwhile to cart around.

At 50, it probably becomes worthwhile for the two-piece bonus even on cannon builds with the 10% bonus to all weapons, pending you have enough AP weapons to offset the DPS drop for that spot. I find it handy to rear mount on JHDC with cannons, since the subsystem targeting works through it.

Honestly, I've been enjoying it, and I've only ended up with less than 900 in terms of DPS difference, instead of a regular turret that is. This also gives me something for that third tac slot, so it's not so "useless".


Now to upgrade to Anti-proton...this will be expensive...

That's how I read it.

warp core is level 40 onwards only or at least is on KDF toons. For my main STF toon though in the Escort running full AP wepons I have thrown on this beam and the warp core and still kick borg into next week.

Its too bad you cant equip this more then 1 on per ship would be great for cruisers having 360 degrees beams on ships... oh wait thats right dosent in the films all fed cruisers ships has 360 degrees firing arc??? So why not can we have that?
