Beam Boat

Postby HSmith » Wed Apr 04, 2012 2:50 pm

A friend of mine hooked me up when I turned Captain with consoles and weapons to make my Galaxy class cruiser a beam boat. 3 forward phaser 1 quantum torp and 3 phaser Aft. 2 Phaser damage Tac consoles. A heal and an add shields science console. I'm still getting used to it but I am unsure if I like it. The price was right, so that's what I'm flying right now.

Any opinions on build outs for Cruisers at Mark VII and VIII.
The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.

For a beam boat, you definitely need a Prefire Chamber and a Directed Energy Distribution Manifold in your tactical slots. If you have room, add a Zero Point Quantum Chamber for your quantum torpedoes.

In your science slot, stick a Plasma Distribution Manifold. It'll work with the DEDM to improve your phasers.

Also, stick a couple of armors in your engineering slots. They will beef up your hull significantly.
