    I see all these builds that, largely, come out as cookie cutters, the same general layout fitted to the mold of the ship. Do you folks have multiples of all these things, or are you shuffling parts around every time you do a new build? And also, could anyone take on the idea of a less expensive build, that doesn't use event weapons or consoles that people who missed it will likely never get? D.O.M.I.N.O. isn't exactly easy to obtain, y'know? I get sad every time I see a build with Prolonged Engagement weapons, because I know I'll never be able to do that build if I want to go all in on DPS.

    You're reading my mind! I was just thinking about that today. Whenever I post my builds in the future, I plan on listing alternate equipment for all budgets. I would encourage everyone to do that with future build postings. Let us know what profession, ship, and weapon type you would like to use, and I'm sure that one of us, if not me myself, will soon post a build that may work well for you.

    In addition, your equipment moves with you from ship to ship, should you choose to use the same build on a different ship. So no multiples needed. Don't let yourself get down about not having 'X' gear. Cryptic makes things available again, every so often. It's not necessary to have the current meta's gear in order to do well anyway! Just have fun playing STO. Take your time and enjoy yourself!

    Cheers!

    I look forward to it! I've got a tac toon who has as much of that stuff as I can get for him, and then I have my sci toon, who I'm limiting to only Discovery era gear and ships. I hoard infinity weapons boxes for her. Smile I'm a terrible Science pilot, but I'm still haveeing a ton of fun with her.
