    STO is a game I like to tool around with on the rare periods I have time, but I find it complicated, as people have no doubt noticed in my other threads. After a little period away, I've had a little time to get back and I'm lost with the best way to go about working with my Crossfield. A year ago or so, whenever I finally got the Crossfield, I was trying to use timberwolf's video to get an idea of what I need, but I don't feel like I'm utilizing the ship correctly. I don't have all the stuff in epic, nor even mk 15, but without being sure of things, and without a lot of access to resources to do those upgrades, I've just left things.

    I would appreciate any assistance with whether this set up is viable still, and if so, what I need to do to make it sing, so to speak. I'd also like to know if there are better things available. What am I trying to do when I play this ship? I really wanted it to be very discovery like with the items from that show, but with a couple of torpedoes. As you'll see though, I've actually only got one torpedo as I've been told it's better to have omnidirectional.

    In practice, I don't feel I do a ton of damage. Sure, when everything works out great and I get a nice torpedo volley off, I can do some damage, but that big torpedo burst doesn't get to happen often and most of the time, I feel like I'm just doing minimal damage. It's a science ship, so am I just way off and I should really try to push exotic damage somehow..maybe even with some gravimetric torps?
    Here's my build:

    Thank you in advance for any helps or tips as to make me look somewhat competent.
