Re: STO: are starship phasers worth a darn?
I've modified the setup in my Excelsior Retrofit to use 4 Phaser beam arrays and 2 Polaron beam arrays, with Mk XI purple Quantum torpedoes. It does a massive amount of damage, more than the anti-proton setup to the point where I can easily handle several Borg spheres at once, while still giving backup support to any other nearby teammate.
I think heaven is what you make it. When I close my eyes for the final time, I hope to wake up standing in a grassy, breezy, sunlit field, a green tennis ball at my feet, and a little black lab, with a white diamond on her chest, running right towards me.
