Minelayer Vorgon Ytijara Dreadnought Cruiser

(Screenshot by @pottsey)

Who doesn’t like a good explosion? If explosions are your thing or like me you always bring C4 into a stealth mission then this could be the build for you.

Mines have always been a favourite of mine even going back 10 years when we could only run 2 mines launchers at a time. Over the past year we have seen a number of positive changes to mines so today I am going to take a look at the Vorgon Ytijara Dreadnought Cruiser. While this isn’t the highest DPS Minelayer, it works well over a wide variety of content due to the Vorgon console set bonus boosting mine speed.

The idea behind this build beyond lots of explosions is to passive tank so I can focus on piloting...

Command Dreadnaught Cruisers [T6]


Buran with Veteran Skin

 

The latest additions to STO’s C-Store are the Command Dreadnaught Cruisers, Buran / Cardenas (Fleet Version) for the Federation and Qoj / Fleet Qoi for the KDF. Lacking a LtC tactical Bridge Officer and two hybrid command seats these ships certainly are off-meta. But nonetheless, the Buran is a beautiful ship which is good enough to punch through any mission STO has to offer. The Qoj, on the other hand, looks a bit odd but offers a battle cloak to even it out.

Here are our three sample builds:

Beams / Disruptor / Aux2Bat [MoD]

Beams / Phaser / Aux2Bat [MoD]

Phaser / Beams / No Aux2Bat

MB’s Juggernaut Build, and how I got 980k in ISA

First of all, apologies for posting my build this late. I’ve been busy with IRL stuff etc.

On to the build.

My goal for this build was to make a setup that was as optimal as it could be, while only using tactical initiative as a CDR method. The result is a fairly standard DPS setup, with some extra good stuff added where CDR abilities used to be. So, this is the build:

A few notes: All weapon epic modifiers are [CrtD/Dm] (of course), all Sensor-Linked weapons are Targeting-Linked and Promise of Ferocity should be replaced with Strike from the Shadows.

Now, I will detail the build choices, as well as some timing tips.

Vaadwaur Miracle Worker Juggernaut

Super-secret DPS-League admin meeting.

Hello everyone,

Here are our suggestions for the currently highest parsing DPS ship!

As always, these builds can be used for every profession. Just replace the tactical specific personal trait with an Eng/Sci specific one.

Miracle Worker Battlecruiser [T6]

Gagarin class with Delta Rep T6 shield

Cryptics latest additions to the 23rd-century style refits are the Miracle Worker Battlecruisers. Even though they offer nothing we already have seen on other ships, those battlecruisers are quite powerful and provide an almost perfect bridge officer layout for Aux2Battery cannon and beam builds.

Here are some examples to give you an idea about how to arm them for the current meta. Both the Federation and KDF variant have the same stats and layout. Only the visuals are different. The KDF one also has battle cloak!

Cannons

Cannon builds rule the DPS tables for quite some time now, so here are two builds for the two most favorite energy damage types. Both builds have identical bridge officer layouts:

Switching the LtC Universal to Engineering mak...

Engle Mirror Escort Carrier

The Engle class mirror escort carrier is the latest addition to the infinity lockbox. It’s a versatile escort with a decent layout and a great experimental weapon. The starship trait is a pretty good alternative for those of us who have missed last year’s winter event ship or are flying carriers. 

Here’s our sample build: <<Build Link>>

If you are able to handle the additional speed boost the trilithium-laced weaponry set gives you, you should change the gamma set turret and console and use this set instead. 
Approaching Agony is a very cheap universal console that adds +15% Phaser damage and +1.5% CrtH. Use it instead of an expansive Lobi console. Hostile Aquisition is a cheap alternative to Weapon Sensor Enhancer...

Recon Destroyer

(Screenshot by @morishita, check out her deviantart gallery for more awesome pictures!)

 

Hello everyone,

here are our suggestions for the New-Orlean Class Recon Destroyer, the Fleet Version of the Lafayette-Class Recon Destroyer.

Builds for the KDF Fleet Ketha Recon Raptor are equal to the Fed ones.
Both ships could be used from their alligned sub factions (Romulan/Jem’hadar) too.

As an experimental Weapon the Voice of the Prophets would be the strongest “free” one. A good Zen one would be the Railgun. The best might be the Protomatter Sheller from the Tzenkethi Shuk-Din Escort.
