    Concerning the Tzenkethi, dirtside.

    32519128636_5a7e2c90e0_z.jpg

    Amidst the uncertainty of the 25th century remain among other certainties this pair:
    • si vis pacem, para bellum (Latin; trans. 'If you want peace, prepare for war')
    • "If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle." -Sun Tzu

    With this in mind, consider the following...

    32560011685_16bc1379b7_z.jpg
    They who strike first can tilt the field to their advantage; zone pause (not used in this case because of apparent issues it causes with demorecord) is a big help


    32519128706_d3d6c26d36_z.jpg

    As noted, Tzenkethi backpacks can remain active after their operator is taken out; they act much like the Vaadwaur shield drones, except that they do not move. If a Tzenkethi is suddenly invulnerable, at least one of these is in play - note that its effect beam looks very similar to a tetryon beam

    32560012085_ee9023f154_z.jpg
    Pounce. No longer just for Ferasans and Caitians

    32519128506_4620079521_z.jpg
    Except for happening in mid-engagement, this would be a textbook triangulated ambush. The markers are warnings for a ground analogue of Cannon Spread Volley


    Bonus:

    32519128396_2e67b4de24_z.jpg
    When one question is answered, more arise

    Thanks; I probably should've gotten in some environment shots too; the art guys did a good job with that map.

    Tetryon HDR (High-Density Rifle); the, ah, Lovely Angels use the 'full auto' version...
    Really, calling them full-auto is kind of silly when not only are their fire modes both bursts, but actual full-auto rifles exist in the game (referred to for some odd reason as piercing beam rifles)... and why you can't craft those in the various flavors escapes me, too.

    That explains it. I tend to stick to Split Beam Rifle and Dual Pistols ( for the 2nd weap of my CO ) when ever I can. Sprinkle in a bit of Knock Back or DoT and I'm a happy camper.

    Thanks, @salacnar070890! A big part of the reason I had to splash 900 Lobi on the NX-R was your amazing pics. That perspective shot going into ESD was awesome. I'm trying out a DHC Antiproton build right now. So far it's passable, but needs some tuning.

    i would recommend DCs over DHCs as DHCs are slow-firing weapons

    Indeed; DCs and turrets can shred things nicely, as shown by this particular build. You might recall his also presenting a budget build for the Xyfius-class; that one can be easily adapted to use cannons as well.

    Antiproton Mag Consoles (or Fleet Consoles) + Polymorphic Probe Array + Crystalline Absorption Matrix (if you were smart enough to get one from the Phoenix Event) = TONS of AP damage goodness.
    Space Barbie Extraordinaire. Got a question about Space Barbie? Just ask.

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options, letting the toon complexion affect the entire body, not just the head. Also a true RGB color picker applied to all costume and appearance options, which would allow for true appearance customization and homogenous colors instead of "this same exact color looks vastly different on two different pieces."
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts. For obvious reasons this would only apply to standard ground weapons.
    4) For the love of Q please revamp Plasma Ground Weapons. They look like demented Supersoakers right now.
    5) True Vanity Impulse and Deflector effects similar to Vanity Shields.
    6) A greater payout for hitting T6 Reputations. Currently it takes more time and resources to get from T5 to T6 than it does to get from nothing to T5. Make that grind really pay out at the end.
    7) Mirrorverse Refugee event similar to AoY/Delta/Gamma, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    8) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    You pretty much nailed my console layout there. Five Fleet consoles, Polymorphic Probe Array, and Crystalline Absorption Matrix. With a few other bonuses thrown in, the AP damage bonus came out somewhere just shy of 300%. I'm trying the Delphic Antiproton DBBs right now, actually, rather than DHCs, and those seem to do nicely. Makes me wish there was an Advanced Radiant Antiproton DBB rather than a standard Beam Array, but I use the array for the Hypercharge set bonus.

    I use four mag consoles, PPA, and CAM with three Herald DHCs, Crystalline Energy Torp, and two AP Omnis (plus the wide angle quantum). An Alpha Strike with Beam Overload, Rapid Fire III, and Torp Spread III can pretty much one-shot a D'deridex and can knock a Borg Cube down to ~30%. That's before I start activating consoles.
