    Also, those two Distress calls can sit in your inventory. They don't have to be equipped. I don't remember if the Temporal Negotiator is in the Phoenix Store, but the next time you load up on Phoenix boxes, check and see if it is. It doesn't hurt to have one. Otherwise... deuterium tanks, weapons platforms, or fighters can go into those two slots. If you have an Oberth, check its console "Enhanced Plasma Manifold". It's a Red Matter Capacitor and then some.

    And put that thing in the white skin with red stripes. It's easier to see while you're dishing out the PEW PEW PEW. At least stick an Aegis Impulse engine in your Visuals. That way you can scroll all the way out and still see what you're doing. 😁
    Thank you^^ aegis is a R&D thingy, right?

    I'm using this ship as well Emmy and just getting the build going. A lot of good stuff in this thread. I've been looking at Bridgers build and trying to build to that.

    The prices have been raised a lot. For "Context is for kings" I had paid around 6-7M at most.
    I picked up Context for 14m yesterday. Lots of them on exchange around 16m. I'd say the ake a look again as prices looks to have dropped.

    Wouldn't a 5/3 layout benefit from some dual beams or cannons? That seems like a cheaper way to boost DPS if a person is comfortable piloting that way. Moving my Donnie build to dual beams nearly doubled its DPS. However, I only use that ship for DPS purposes.

    Bridge officers make sure you got the correct ones before dropping expensive skills purchased on them for a build I have seen far too many people drop something on a toon only to have to reget it for another boff when they realised

    Make sure you have the two Romulan Blue Male tactical Boffs from the fleet embassy given you're fed these give boosts to your Crit Chance and Sev the Mr potato head hierarchy sci/intel boff gives pirate from the alliance's mission in the delta arc if you have Jem Vanguards they can fill other slots or if you have not you can look at the Kentari ones at the fleet colony holdings these ones are pricey though

    Boff traits really are an excellent place to start. I've been trying out two Romulan operatives, two pirates and the Lukari Protomatter specialist.


    I picked up Context for 14m yesterday. Lots of them on exchange around 16m. I'd say the ake a look again as prices looks to have dropped.
    Back up to 24mil this morning. I must have gotten lucky yesterday.

    No, the Nimbus Pirate, Delta Reinforcements and the Hur'q Phase Waveform can all stay in your inventory. The Beacon of Kahless is pretty much the only one that has to be equipped on your ship, at least currently.

    They must have fixed that recently. The last time I tried it with it in my inventory, it wasn't available. That was right after I got it from the Mudd's Shop.

    They must have fixed that recently. The last time I tried it with it in my inventory, it wasn't available. That was right after I got it from the Mudd's Shop.
    That's weird. I have never had it slotted and it has always worked.

    I suppose -- as in all things STO -- it depends on how the game is feeling on that day.

    That's very true. Maybe I didn't hop on one leg and and pat my stomach before I tried to run it.
