# 1 Engineer in a Science Vessel!
01-30-2010, 11:43 PM
Hey all, just wondering something here while waiting for the server to return from it's voyage.

Would an Engineer in a science vessel be good, or reeeeeally good? SInce Engies have shield boosting powers and Science vessels have great sheilds, and all. Just wondering if that'd be a decent soloing build, any thoughts?

If you threw into those skills it'd certainly be a boost. *nodnods* the extra debuff/buff capabilities of the science ships might go to waste by comparison to specializing in them. but each build can stand on it's own and be unique and playable... I'd said Core Junkies (Engineers) are the universal really... he'd be just as at home in any of them. you'd just flesh out your skill tree differently than on a cruiser ^^

Neeto! I'll honestly probably be hopping from type to type based on which ships at each teir don't look ghastly, so it's nice to know I'll usually be acceptable

One thing I've noticed about this combo is that the science ships have slightly weaker hulls, so you have to make sure you don't use shields with too much bleedthrough or every torpedo hit hurts qutie a bit, although engineers are extremely adept at repairing hulls too so I dunno. I didn't get the chance to try it out with my Eng in beta, I only got my tac officer above Lt. then. Be worth a shot! The great thing is, you can have each type of ship if you want. First one is free with promotion but you can buy the others if you wanna have them all!

I think any class would work could with any ship given the right strategies. Just go for it. I kind of want to Tactical up a Science ship.
