I'm close to putting together all the equipment I want for my Mat'ha Raptor (then I start the process of upgrading everything). The only thing I have yet to pick up is an engine. I've been looking over the options and would appreciate feedback from the more experienced captains out there.
Option 1 - Romulan
This is the one I see most recommended in the builds I have looked at. The bonus to attack patterns seems nice. I do use AP A,B,O but is the bonus that significant?
Option 2 - Nukara
High flight speed and turn rate but more important +5 shield power plus another +7.5 shield power with increased bonus at low power. Now I don't expect to get much of the low power bonus but even if 7.5 is the minimum, does that mean total +12.5 shield power? That seems pretty good unless I'm missing something.
As an added bonus, since I have the shield and deflector this would complete the 3 part set although the Unstable Tetryon ability it grants doesn't seem all that impressive. Especially since it disables your weapon stabilizers.
Option 3 - Dyson
Good turn rate and +2.5 to shield, engine and aux power. Not bad.
Option 4 - Kobali
High turn rate and reduces cooldown on shield and hull healing boff powers. The reduction is however based on engine power so not sure how much help it will really be. On the plus side, I already have it so saves some dilithium there.
Any insight and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
