I just finished a round of PVP in one of my beam boats and I have to say that sometimes I forget how awesome the DOff "Marion Frances Delmur" is when you're in a beam boat.
For those players who have been living in a cave or just not paying attention to the forums over the last few years, Marion Frances Delmur is a Systems Engineer DOff with an amazing ability:
"Greatly reduces Weapon Subsystem Energy Drain for 8sec when Directed Energy Modulation is activated. (+200 resistance to Weapon Subsystem Energy Drain for 8sec.)"
This means if you have Marion and an engineering BOff with Directed Energy Modulation on your ship then you can frequently fire beam overload and FAW with almost no drain on your energy weapons and increased shield penetration!
Translation: FREE DPS!!!!
In a cruiser with decent tanking build, you can survive in a firefight and do MUCH more damage over the length of the battle thanks to Marion and directed energy modulation.
I just checked the prices on the exchange and he isn't cheap, but I'm going to pick up a few more copies of him for my other toons.

Don't believe the lies in this forum. I am NOT an ARC user. I play STO on Steam or not at all.
