As an FYI I am no longer updating this since I have quit the game, but someone else i.e. a mod can maybe grant access to others to edit the posts. Feel free to repost or recirculate anywhere else with...

Post: RE: Huge booster for tank style gameplay?

The trait certainly works, I usually use this on alts who are not kitted out as much as my main. However there are usually better options on a character approaching endgame content even for tanks. The...

I missed this thread originally but I love everything about it as I've always enjoyed melee in this game. Will have to build some of this on a Sci and test it out for myself.

Can you go to the Skill Planner tool and fill out your ship, bridge officers, traits, etc. there? This will help us understand what you have currently. https://skillplanner.stoacademy.com/

Post: RE: What the heck happened? (Battle experience)

Sometimes if there's a lot going on, you don't see the enemy torp spread that nukes you. Torps on higher difficulties and scaling past 60 are all kinds of FUBAR at this point, and since torp spread ca...

The Eternal is a good platform for a variety of options, and the Temporal seating plus the universal seat gives you a lot of flexibility as far as what powers you want to run.

Post: RE: Am i on the right track?

The Nausicaan damage boost is certainly good to have but you're losing out on an entire weapon slot since you are cannon-focused because that beam is rarely going to be firing on a target if you are f...

Post: RE: Jem Ha'dar Vanguard Carrier - trying to figure...

To be clear, you certainly CAN run torps on this ship if you wanted to, but it's going to be more of a "park-and-fire" torpedo platform than it will be a moving ship like normal. You can run scitorp o...

EPTS still provides shield hardness boost besides just a shield heal, it's definitely worth running.

When you're doing an exotic torp build, you generally want to use your rear slots for weapons that are part of sets to grant you set bonuses for the torps you do want to focus on in the fore slots. Th...

I would get rid of the Nausicaan beam rear, or move it fore if you really want to keep it. It doesn't do you any favors rear. Another turret would do much better there and would synergize with cannon ...

The Discovery and Emperor lockboxes both have phasers and disruptors with visuals from the show, you can probably get some of the less-loved varieties cheap on the Exchange.
