Yeah, I'd rather have a good time than have the latest, greatest weapon or the shiniest ship. That's not a problem in PvE. However, in PvP, the boys with the shiny ships and weapons are going to spank you.

Agreed. Shoot, I'm just trying to keep my Excelsior from falling apart while in combat.
I will say this: I found out just how bad I am with escorts. I flew my Defiant class retrofit and got my rear repeatedly kicked a dozen times, and I'm not talking in PvP, I'm talking Ker'rat, and taking on the Borg. Just *boom*.

Though I do wonder if there's a bug. I refitted my Excelsior class retrofit with all antiprotons, 2 Mk XI blue Mag regulators, readjusted my Boff abilities primarily for defense instead of DPS, and I still managed to get blown to pieces in seconds by a Borg cube. This didn't happen before the latest patch.
This is how my Defiant retrofit looks:



I used this thread as a basis, and made some modifications: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=244532

Worked out fine for me. Sure, I still blow up real quick if I'm careless, but as long as I think before diving in and keep an eye on my shield skills and distribution, I come out on top more often then not. If nothing else I do massive damage.

Also, I'm not done yet with that ship. Still things to be added and upgraded.
