Neat! I'll have to run through it again with my Vulcan and see what happens.
After a day or so of tweaking, I think I have my ship right where I want it. I'm not uberpowered, and I'm not invincible, but I took on 2 BortaS, a BoP, and another KDF ship I couldn't recognize, all at the same time. They were using some kind of ability that generated dozens of BoPs, attack fighters, you name it. It was a swarm
of ships from all directions, and even with all of that firepower coming down on top of me, I survived for 8 full minutes, and did a hell of a lot of damage myself, destroying at least 3 of them before they came back to rejoin the fight (and destroying dozens of fighters and BoPs in the process). I'd never been able to withstand more than 1 or 2 ships at most
, at a time, for more than a minute or two, and while each ship is different and each commander differently skilled, I still feel proud.
