Science Ships in the Current Century

Due to the high demand for science ship builds, here is a brief overview of what is currently in vogue. One fair warning: only read on and recreate one of the builds if you want to invest hundreds of millions of energy credits, piles of Lobi and thousands of Zen.

Science ships are able to dish out incredible amounts of damage to groups, especially in elite queues.  Unlike cruisers or escorts their main sources of damage are:

  1. Bridge officer skills
  2. Clicky abilities from consoles
  3. Secondary deflector
  4. Weapons

The following builds are based exactly on this order.

A common mistake is to link the captain’s profession to the class of the ships when it comes to terms of maximum efficiency. This might work in other MMOs, but in STO it’s Tactical > rest...

Miracle Worker Flight Deck Carrier – Constitution-Class

Back in the 2250s, the Constitution-Class was built to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and to boldly go where no man has gone before. Of course, also our Klingon and Romulan friends wanted some attention from the Federation. But now we are in the 25th century, Klingons became our friends and other enemies knock on our doors. But is a 160-year-old starship still a threat or only a, admittedly somewhat expensive, nice old pleasure boat?
