    FWIW, I've always heard folks say the Deteriorating ones are better from a damage standpoint than the Inhibiting ones.

    Personally I’d recommend one of these with the following mods.

    Deteriorating Secondary Deflector [CtrlX]x2 [EPG/ShdHeal] [EPG] [SA +Dmg]

    Generally speaking a Deteriorating Sec Def is better for damage output because it applies it's extra damage THROUGHOUT the attack that triggers it (e.g. Tachyon Beam) whereas an Inhibiting Dec Def dumps a load of extra damage AT THE END of the ability that triggered it (e.g. Gravity Well).

    That means that potentially the Inhibiting ones can have no effect if the target dies before the damage is applied or if it escapes the attack. By comparison the deteriorating ones are going to be firing off extra rad damage from the get-go and have a higher potential to inflict it on the target. Also, a lot of the abilities that are activating a deteriorating sec def are long running "energy beam" attacks that lock on to a target and cannot miss or be escaped from; also adding to the potential to inflict damage.

    I went with a Deteriorating Sec Deflector from the Research lab, since they deal energy weapon damage..

    That's odd. Only way that makes sense is if you're using a Sci-based carrier (only ship type I can think of that would have Sci Cmdr seats but no SecDef).

    What ship is your wizard flying? A few science ships don’t have them.

    Okay, you win this round! That was a good throwback. Well done!


    I have an Icarus. It doesn't have the Science seating (1 CDR TAC/Pilot, 1 LT TAC, 1 LT ENG/Pilot, 1 LTCDR SCI, 1 LT Universal) or the Secondary Deflector.

    Thats because it doesn’t fall into the science ship category. Only dedicated science ships have secondary deflector slots. Such as the Nebula, Crossfield etc etc.

    EDIT: The icarus is a escort, most science ships are typically cruiser class or destroyers.

    Thats because it doesn’t fall into the science ship category. Only dedicated science ships have secondary deflector slots. Such as the Nebula, Crossfield etc etc.

    EDIT: The icarus is a escort, most science ships are typically cruiser class or destroyers.
    Yeah, I know. I was being obtuse.

    Still, it would be nice if the SCI-Pi had a Secondary Deflector.
    And THIS is why I'm 52 and single.
