Alright, I think I did a sufficient job translating my pre-Season 11.5 skills into the new system as I did roughly the same damage as before (~41k DPS)  and that was even without my personal traits as they were auto-cleared with the release of Season 11.5. I just noticed it a bit later. LOL

I know, that the recommended DPS build would require me to put 24 points into Tactical. However, that would take all the fun out of the game for me. So, I'm not seeking an uber-DPS build. I'm fine with that DPS and I love to do some crowd-controlling. I love Science Ships and Carriers, although I'm an Engineer. In the hope, that Romulans someday get their true big Carrier, I decided for the skills I picked.

That said, I like to present my current flagship, the Paradox Temporal Dreadnought A.R.W. Defection Epicus A.R.W. Bhorgha'paectum.
Any thoughts on it are much appreciated.

EDIT: Currently converting to be a Tank. Need to adapt to some specific gameplay but doing ~45k DPS already. Wink
Your build make me do more questions than statements!
The only thing I can say is: use a conductive RCS with the mode that give power transfer (I know, it's expensive), it gives the same bonuses of the EPF flow regulator plus more bonuses.
I see that you use CC abilities but no power drain, do the points that you put in the drain affect your tetryons?

I like to be special. LOL.

Does the Conductive RCS Accelerator with [EPS] modifier give you +100% Power Transfer rate? Because that's what I get out of my epic Mk XIV EPS Flow Regulator.

Yes. According to the Skillplanner, Drain Effects include all Shield Drain/Damage, Subsystem Power Drain, Subsystem Offline and Power Transfer Rate Debuffs. So, it's mainly to benefit the Tetryons and the Leech.

Alright, I decided for some big changes and went Tanky. Slotted the TTDA, the ARAP and switched to +Beam Consoles. Also, in order to benefit greatly from the new Strategist Specialisation, I decided to changed my Plasma-Generating Weapon Signature Nullfiers into AMPLIFIERS.

Any thoughts are appreciated.
sorry just a thought here, using my knowledge of a dead language that I was forced to study here in the UK, but doesn't ARW defectio epicus= epic defection?
I thought it was meant to be a rough translation of 'Major Malfunction'

To be absolutely honest, it's supposed to be latin for "Epic Fail(ure)". Well, at least according to Google Translate "Defectio" means failure.

Alright, since Google Translate sucks and the confusion about the name is warranted, I decided to rename it into A.R.W. Bhorgha'paectum.

would still work as epic defection lol- you have a Mirror terran temporal ship Smile
Well, I enjoyed checking out your build. It is really close to what I was setting up on my fed sci for a 'tanky' kind of ship. I was just going by reading the skill descrip's and thinking, "What would a tank need?", because I am no theory crafting expert on this game.
