In the recent sale I went for the Vesta triple pack. Idea was to use both quantum sets.
I didn't upgrade them yet to T5U, since I'm still undecied which one. I started with the eng version, but even this one is paper thin. The pets are even flimsier (I missed last years winter event, and this year for some reason one couldn't slot the ships from previous events anymore, so yeah
First idea was to combine the quantum sets with the aux cannons, but after I tried that I'm leaning more towards dropping them for this:
quantum phase beam + neutronic torp + quantum phase torp front
lobi tachyon mines + omni phaser beam + whatever aft
Even by using the lt cmdr universal for an eng boff (and effectively flying the Rademaker as light cruiser) the ship explodes a lot.
I've got this voice in my head telling me to switch from the Rademaker to the Vesta, and drop the lt cmdr eng for a sci boff, for even more space magic. But then again that wouldn't really help my already quite low survivability I guess.
One thread reducing console didn't help much.
Any ideas how to solve the issue ?
