having a right pain with the Captain's level ships... went for the cruiser as most people suggested, weapons aren't doing dick...
seriously... just got my ass kicked on a standard patrol against some reman ships, nothing even serious...
really need to get some better weapons in there, because these phaser bank thinks are s#!ite
Stupid Question, but are you running max power level? Also keep in mind that the Galaxy class has room for so many beams, they really eat into your power reserves. Good power management is essential for cruisers.
Second stupid question: are you running anything higher then Mk VI weapons?
