Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)
guess the real question is: who is using a SCI ship in the first place?
It's an all-DPS game, Escort is basically the only way to fly. Or go ENG/Tank and spec out a cruiser to take a beating while still dishing some out. Either way, SCI is that middle ground that doesn't really do anything very well. Gimmicks, but not tanking or DPS...
With a tactical character...
Fred: War, Nobby. Huh! What is it good for?
Nobby: Dunno, Sarge. Freeing slaves, maybe?
Fred: Absol—well, okay.
