I decided to put my Gal-R into storage while I work on creating an escort build for my MVAE, and I must say the results are impressive. I went with a phaser/quantum torp setup and I am just tearing through the other ships as if they were made of paper. It's one of my better builds that I've done. Here's my setup :
Fore weapons - Quad phaser cannons, Dual Phaser Cannon MK XII Borg, Dual Heavy Phaser Cannons MK XII Borg, Quantum Torps Mk XII Borg
Aft Weapons - Phaser Turret Mk XII Borg, Phaser Turret Mk XI (will upgrade when I get another Prototype Borg Salvage), and Quantum Torp MK XII Borg
Shields/Deflector/Engines - MACO MK XII
Sci Console - Borg Console, Field Generator MK XI (Rare), MVA module
Eng Console - Monotanium Alloy MK XI (Rare), Neutronium Alloy MK XI (Rare)
Tac Console - 3 Phaser Relay MK XI (Rare), Zero Point Quantum Chamber MK XI (Rare)
What used to take me a couple of minutes to destroy now only takes seconds. A burst of cannon scatter volley III followed by torpedo spread III and anyone in my path is almost gone. Now to try that build in an STF...
