Basically im interested in the Obelisk carrier or any carrier for that matter, but im a tactical officer, and ive always been told that a tac officer and carriers just simply do not mix well besides maybe the new escort carrier hybrids
But im interested in pure carriers such as the obelisk, the Atrox. etc
And im wondering if a tac officer can be a capable pilot/effective pilot in a carrier
Ive seen tactical captains be quite effective in the atrox.
It was serious business, and shit went down. Like ash ketchum when he throws a pokeball
I'm a tac and I love my Jem Dread carrier build. I also use plasma torps in a torp boat build on it; contrary to popular opinion it shreds things but you do need the Rom/Omega torps if you can afford them to make it succeed. Beams are great too especially a plasma beam build so you can do DOT to a lot of stuff over time while your pets get angry on everything in sight. I also had fun with the Armitage and Vesta line.
Try to find the Doffs which allow your carrier pets to rank up faster, this makes them very effective. Also I would suggest doing some research on which pets you want to go for; the Nukara and Romulan rep trees both have elite pets you can purchase, while if you own a Jem Attack Ship you can get elite Jem Attack pets for your Jem Dread. Fleet starbase sells Yellowstone, Delta Flyer, and Peregrine elite pets as well I believe.The Yellowstones are pretty good for crowd control as they have tractors, Tetryon-Plasma radiation cloud, and chroniton torpedoes. I use them on my Voth Bulwark.
I would agree with what TacPaddy has to say although I use my Armitage and would say that as well as Jem Dread is more for Tacs.The Obelisk is more for science like all the Dyson ships.
Really imo you can make any career work with any type of ship. Some will be a little better designed for the traditional role they fill yes but I have an Engi-Carrier that runs like a modified escort on the kdf side, a Tac Cruiser that is a escort for all intents on the fed side, and a tac carrier that is passable (Needs better pets to be good)
