    Interesting idea.

    My Sovereign would have 2 arrays front, + 1 photon + 1 quantum launcher and in the rear 2 arrays and 1 photon + 1 quantum since ships like the sovereigncan fire both.

    The galaxy would probably have one photon front and 3 arrays (should be 2, but that would leave one slot unused) and teh same in the rear.

    Intrepid would have 2 arrays and 1 photon front , 1 array and 2 photons rear. photon front can be swapped for tricobalt.

    Defiant runs quad cannons, dual beams, quantum and photon front, 1 array, photons and quantums rear.

    Im going to have to try these configurations but I know it will be fun either way....

    I haven't looked but I'm sure there is a guide out there that will have what load outs each ship has.

    All in all it's in the name of having a bit of fun.

    So basically, this is an RP channel? Or rather, a combat channel with a bit of RP mixed in?

    Yes... I suppose it would be.

    Some ideas that I would throw around is like an "Attack Pattern Run" which would be something along the lines of APR Cappa... sci ship goes in first with 2 cruisers debuff the target get the aggro then the tacs come in and rain down their payload.

    This would require communication prior to going in but all in good STO fun =)

    This sounds like quite a cool idea,

    Couple of things tho...

    Might be cool if it was just faction specific ships to go along with the faction specific energy type,

    I understand wanting to use torpedoes but the idea of using an aft torpedo is just awful IMO.

    Question, Are dual beam banks allowed for say an ody? I was planning:
    Front
    X2 beam array
    Dual beam bank
    Quantum torpedo
    Rear:
    X2 beam array
    Quantum mine
    Quantum torp

    Or

    Front& rear
    X2 Beam array
    Photon torpedo
    Quantum torpedo

    I think your first point was one of the points I made in the initial post. Fed use phasers and so on.

    Having the torpedo in the aft is something that most ships had as they were constantly moving in circles and would fire aft torpedos when they would end a run.

    I'd think so... I think ships had mines as well so why not. As we get some runs in we will figure what works with all. I personally would go for 2nd config but that's me. I still want this to be fun for all.

    I would like to start running some of these STB's today so we can have a chat to see what everyones feeling.

    What I have running on my MVAE is 3 phaser beam array 1 quant in the front with 2 phaser beam array 1 photon in the back.

    Ill see you in game, ill send invite when I log on later... a work atm =/

    I may not make it in tonight. I have a welding class from 5pm to 10pm EST but I would love to come try this out. And I'll go more with the second build.

    Send me an invite as well... @dvsaris

    Will spread the word in my fleet, should get 5 or 6 more folks interested at the very least. Pulled out my Fleet Galaxy aggro/heal/support boat last night... she'll do great for this.

    Given how the DPSers have pretty much ruined STFs, I'm very much up for this. Username minus the 78.

    Awesome! Still love the Galaxy. Anyone is welcome all I ask for is that we do this for fun... I mentioned there will be guidelines/rules but I think everyone that has posted here gets where I'm trying to go with this.

    I still do speed runs when I'm short on time but with the quick switch feature it's made it easy to switch from STB to STF's... will send invite later this afternoon.

    So this is faction specific ships only?

    No lock box ship?

    I think it would be allowed as mentioned tho the MK of the weapon would have to be on par with everyone elses.

    Hello @talonxv

    This could be fun, feel free to invite me @dragonsbrethren.

    I assume distruptors + plasma torps will be acceptible on a canon Romulan build? I've got a full set of mk XIs from before I upgraded to Romulan plasma. I mean, getting Mk XI plasma wouldn't be a big deal, but I kinda want to run disruptors for extra authenticity.

    What about turrets? We never seen anything like them in the series IIRC. Just beams and cannons. Not sure what to throw on the back of a Mogai without them, they never fired beams in the movie.

    What tier ships should we be in? I've got a retrofit and fleet Mogai - guessing I should continue using fleet for the extra survivability, since it'll be an issue?

    Is a Recluse Carrier with tetryon beams and Elite Mesh Weavers allowed? ;)

    Sounds like a great idea. :)

    Would you allow upgunned, canon, lower tier ships as well?

    Things like the free Tier 3 Galaxy, Intrepid, Akira, etc...?

    I think the disruptors and plasma torps will be fine. We would still have to see what your dps is running the MK XI's but last night we had a group of 3 with one running still MX XII's but had NO consoles and had his power levels balanced so I'm sure that decreased his dps. We did SB24 and it WAS FUN!

    As a suggestion for your rear, I would put 2 plasma torps and turrets? Not sure what they put in the rear TBH but we can see what works.

    Will send you an invite when I'm in game next - thanks

    The tier of ship can be ANY of your choice. I'm running the fleet MVAE, all we are changing is the tactics and dps output which I think should be around the 5k mark. I did a tau dewa patrol in Beta Thor and a team mate parsed me at 6k+... we ran it again and I did not use any buffs and clocked in at 2k+. I'm also still using all fleet/rep/consoles for the survivability.

    As mentioned anyone can fly what they want we would just have to tweak your dps is all =)

    O... it IS fun... well for me anyways.

    we would just need again to adjust the dps output which can be done by taking away consoles or managing power levels.

    End goal is to work as a team to reach the objective of that particular run, fly your ships (NO PARK N' SHOOT) and most importantly have fun.

    If you would like invites leave your @handles here and I will send them when I'm in game next.

    A geared up lower tier ship with a good Captain can perform quite well in STFs. The Sao Paolo in particular is very nasty.

    I am a new player that just hit 50 last night and this sounds like a great idea to me. Though I still no literally nothing about the game I am hesitant to join in until I could be more useful, in the mean time I am starting a sci toon, as going back and watching DS9 makes me want to be a trill or bajoran
