The way i see it is burst damage is more advantageous than firing arc. As a Defiant you should be "bobbing and weaving" so to speak when you engage enemies. As a cruiser it's fine to just orbit your target and spank away at them with beams, etc, but as a Defiant you need to do strafing runs...it's the main reason why i play the Defiant, it's fun to move and run around your targets. If you've watched the DS9 episodes where the Defiant engages targets it's very much this kind of strafe and burst damage type of play style. Of course you're free to play however you want but the Defiant is optimized for this type of battle strategy.

Add me: Ninja@MonCapitan
Keep in mind that the enemy is regenerating shields while you're turning back for another run. The quicker you get energy flowing back on target, the less shield is in place for your next cannon run.

Edit: also keep in mind the Defiant had beams as well as cannons.

Ninja... Where have I seen you lately in game? Have we been on a mission together or met in PVP?
I used to PVP all the time but not since FAW and the rest of the broken PVP crap started. These days i'm killing Borg.

Well the Defiant in the game is clearly not canon Defiant unfortunately. It's not even a "real cloak". I would really love to see the Achilles class starship in the game. Actually if i could pick any ship to captain in the Star Trek Universe i'd pick the Achilles class.

With or without the micro quantum torpedos?

Re: Star Trek: Online

Anyone that wants tips, help, etc, i'm more than happy to help.

Add me in-game: Ninja@MonCapitan

I play during Asia Pacific hours however...

I splurged and bought up the Mk XI Phaser Turrets, a bit higher DPS and Phaser dmg but barely noticeable.

Re: Star Trek: Online

starting tp look good. Not much you can improve gear wise now.
Next, look at your powers and how they affect your gameplay.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Science consoles, quantum torpedoes, and better tactical consoles, and powers to improve my gameplay, I should be ok with in few weeks or month or two.

After all you guys all've been playing for months on end.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Really?

Got it originally with the code.
So I wasn't aware it's a freebie now from C-Store.
Always only showed up as purchased.

You realize you're flying without your main deflector?
Eh? I do have a deflector dish, albeit not likely to be the type that remains on my ship when I'm done working on it.
I was referring to the "nose" of the Defiant class, which seems to be missing on your screenshot. That thing happens to host the ship's main deflector.

Oh, right. Now I feel silly for not realizing that was what you meant.

You can't see the deflector in that screenshot because I'm using the saucer section from the Gallant-class variation. If you look at the image here, you'll be able to see it.

Yeah I think this was likely done becuase they didn't use different codes to get it and as a result it spread through out the internet and thus there would have been no point to charging for it.
