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

  • @Girochen  says:

    On duty officers, space, you have three Technicians which have abilities that trigger when using Aux2Batt on the “No Aux2Bat” build. Is this an error? What are you using instead?

    • peterconnorfirst  says:

      Most likely an error as all CD times are being taken care of via Photonic Officer boff ability and the new ship trait Improved Photonic Officer. In that example the technicians could be replaced by the doffs mentioned in the note section. Anti Borg doff also comes to mind for the respective content. Thanks for pointing this out Girochen. 🙂

      • Croder  says:

        is Photonic Officer only viable for cooldown management with the trait?

        • peterconnorfirst  says:

          I have seen some builds utilizing it without the trait but then have a single aux2bat copy + the doffs installed. There is also the ship trait Calm before the Storm sometimes put into the mix for CDs but all of it requires some micromanagement and/or short runs.

          If you just want to CD everything reliably and indefinitely I think the trait is needed. If you have 3 points in tac readiness in skill tree it should work then by either just using Photonic Officer 2 or Photonic Officer 1 + Chrono Capacitor reputation trait. 🙂

  • @Othanji7  says:

    Just curious as to what my power settings should look like on the 3 builds?

    • Josuha Altair  says:

      If Aux2Bat build, 100/15/15/70.

      • Hellspawny  says:

        Yes, it’s the default setting for all energy weapon builds unless you need more speed or shield power.

        • Josuha Altair  says:

          However Warbird’s total power setting is 160 (less than normal ship’s) , so 100/15/15/30.

  • Julian Teopaco  says:

    Would you get higher DPS replacing the Assimilated Module with a Tachyokinetic Converter? And would replacing the Romulan Beam and House Martok 360, with The Nausicaan Set and a console like the Tachy or something raise the DPS even more?

    • Hellspawny  says:

      Replacing the Assimilated Module with a Tachyo won’t change anything, these consoles are almost identical. I’d drop the Siphon for it.
      If you get decent results with the Nausicaan set, use it. The Tachyo’s turn rate might help you. I don’t like using torps on 4/4 ships.
      Broadsiding and having a torp that fires every 12 seconds is not my favorite style of play.
