    Well Bridger is the master at that stuff, but for my T6 Defiant, I ran an all fleet elite duel antiproton heavy cannons for the fore weapons (minus the 1 Omega torpedo). Then in the rear I have the cutting beam and antiproton turrets. For higher dps, I went with 4 fleet antiproton beam/cannon (what ever it does) and 1 fleet plasma projectile, all from the colony world. For eng and sci I just threw in some fleet hull and shield heals if they weren't occupied from omega set stuff. All the other slots were filled with omega set stuff.

    I just recently switched over to the counter command set and am running a bio-warship with all phaser and a bio torpedo and it does pretty well too. I don't know if its the bio-ship or the counter command set, but it seems like I'm out of shields a lot faster than I ever was with the omega set. Guess the Borg know shields better :p

    You have the option between a Cannon or Beam Escort, both can perform very well.

    New Orleans Class Build

    Well Bridger is the master at that stuff

    I would whole heartedly recommend the Defiant with Bridgers build. If you have access the t4 cstore version, those quad cannons are a treat.

    I've been out of game for a while (still lots of stuff at mk 12 if that gives you an idea or finally to mk 15 but only very rare) and seeing your dps scores, I'd hope it's not just luck :p

    I suspect the blood of his enemies, if there's anything left of them by the end it.

    Agreed.

    I upgaded mine to Epic- and the great thing is they also work on other ships, too.

    It's a worthwhile investment for those who love to use Escorts/Battlecruisers in partticular- at least for those who prefer cannon builds. For Beam boats I always recommend Cruisers because they're much tankier for broadsiding, but to each their own.
