Science Pilot Escorts

The Science Pilot Escorts are nice little DPS-ships, besides that, they’re funny to fly, because of Pilot Maneuvers.

The Klavek Pilot Raptor (KDF) has the same layout.

    Why not use dual beam banks on the pilot escort / raptor? With only two aft slots you could easily use the kinetic cutting beam and an omni disruptor array.

    • felisean  says:

      Yes you could defnitly do that πŸ™‚

      But in general we saw normaly quite equal dps numbers from using dbb or normal array, while its easier to hold the targets in the fire arc from normal arrays instead of dual beam banks. In case you switch to DBB, you should still use the Terran Reputation Beam Array, just bc its totaly awesome πŸ™‚

      • Nuclear_Bob  says:

        Thanks for your reply! I’m glad to hear the numbers are similar since I already have regular beam arrays from another ship.

    DBB + FAW + Gravity well = FUN 😬

    • felisean  says:

      Dont forget to add a subspace vortex, anti time entaglement and maybe the delphic tear generator there :>

      • whicky1978  says:

        i have added these and may throw in a tykens rift too.

    I’ve been playing this ship but have been trying to adapt Connor’s NX Cannon Build, it would probably be better using this build but with cannons what would you change for cannons I’d assume that the weapons forward and back and the other equipment (Deflector and what not would be as listed) and probably the science and tactical consoles i have the borg console on the engineer slot but don’t have the Universal – Plasmonic Leech and dont see getting anytime soon(dont want to buy a ship from the Z-store) what would you replace it with. I know to replace the bof wire at will abilities with the scatter volley but what about the other skill and traits?

    • felisean  says:

      csv2+3 and apb1 for cannon builds. in addition, use the withering barrage trait (extend csv by 4 seconds to a maximum of 14 seconds with 15 sec shared cd, so only one second without csv).
      for feds/rom: plasmonic would be cheap (exchange), for rom/kdf defnitly get the dynamic power redistributor console (exchange).
      At the end, connors build should be quite equal to a pilot ship so you should be able to copy most(all) of the build to it πŸ™‚

  • Mike Steinfeld  says:

    Has anyone done an updated cannon build for these ships?

    • felisean  says:

      not for those ships itself, but if you check the jem’hadar warship or peterconnors nx you should get an idea of how ships could be done today, since all cannon builds are quite equal at the end πŸ˜‰
