Quite identical to the beam boat, just with a Dark Matter Torp and the Wide Angle Dual Heavy Beam Bank.

 

The ship can be used for any faction and profession.

  • Irishjedi  says:

    I have been up and down the new stuff (with looks amazing) I see reference to mixed armaments. What specializations do these builds use MW/Strat?

    • felisean  says:

      dps wise intel/strategist is the way to go.

      miracle worker / strategist could work too tho.

      mixed armaments is a reference to a miracle worker ship, its fixed now by getting remove since this ship isnt a mw ship 😉

  • whicky1978  says:

    how does advance beam compare to Harold anti-proton beams and coalition disruptors?

    • felisean  says:

      advanced beams are the strongest phaser beams available. for disruptor they defnitly compete with spirals for the #1 spot and should be at least equal.

  • Railow  says:

    What Hangar Pet would be the best for this build or are they a minor dps win/loss ?
