    I have that, and the Kentari set from the mission you do on New Kentar. I was just helping out the OP with stuff I've done during my playing.

    Also nice to see what other people do for their new toons.

    Oh yeah, you're right! I do have the Sompek shield and weapons. Thanks for reminding me.

    Red Angel Armor says hi? Granted, main character only. Also, gamma vanguard pack comes with a nice EV suit...but it's once per character. But that's two armors!

    I did play the event for the Red Angel armor. Don't have monies to get packs. But there are some missions that give out armor too. Off the top of my head is the purple armor you can get from Jabberwocky, I believe.

    Well, if you're just looking for purple armor, the Partisans mission is worth *3* of them (2 Polyalloy from loot boxes, and a Dampening from mission completion). There's also the Romulan Imperial Navy set from Uneasy Allies (Iconian War).

    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    Yeah, it gives a console that gives +13% or on both phaser and disruptor in addition to torp and rad damage boosts, though the torp boost is just for photon torps.

    I think it's the Counter-Command Multi-Conduit Energy Relay console. problem with it is it's a tac console, so you are losing phaser boost with it

    The Counter-Command one seems to balance out more or less, the drop in phaser boost gets made up by the torp and radiation boosts if you are using the rest of the set, especially if you are using more than one science torp (like PEP, or even better the photon from the Terran Task Force Munitions set, I have a character who does well with both complete sets for example) and other radiation based science abilities a lot. It is not mission based though and reputations are near-endgame.

    On the other hand if you are doing polaron, there are the the Chronometric Calculations set from Time and Tide and the Morphogenic Armaments set from Home that each have a tactical console so you loose even more tactical energy consoles than with the Undine set above, and they seem to work well together despite that.

    The loss of tac energy consoles can be mitigated by a lot of factors, mostly having to do with build and playstyle, but even outside things like the fact that a lot of those early-mid game mission sets don't require upgrade tokens until Mk XII if you are F2P and struggling to keep equipment up to level on your first character can help.

    And you can get those from Butterfly, if you like tetryon flavoured weapons.
    Indeed, sir; permit me to round that out...
    Piercing-tetryon ordinance has, in addition to the base tetryon proc, a chance for half of the damage to ignore shields; the proc for resonating-tetryon ordinance affects all shield facings, not just the one struck. Both types are awarded as rare, up to Mk. XI depending on operator level.

    For slower turning ships, the Kentari mass-produced missile launcher is decent option. It's about equal to an energy torpedo for overall damage, but with a much wider firing arc. I keep meaning to pick it up for all of my characters, but never get around to it.

    I appreciate all the feedback regarding the missions on gearing characters, I am noticing a few things we talk about being mentioned in the general chats of PS4 STO. Also seen a lot of people complaining about TFO's which makes me think not a lot of people are getting their Event TFO's done but I could be wrong about that entirely. None the less I think there is a small group of players who find this info helpful even I do so again Thanks!

    Also, I try to do 'Facility 4028' for the Jem'Hadar Doffs. Opens up a number of Assignments having them.

    And don't forget the Jem Hadar Boff tactical (very nice boff), he comes with torp spread III

    Notably... even if you have better BOFFs (such as the Romulan blue male from the Embassy with "Superior Romulan Operative" trait).... the episode Jem'Hadar, while still a candidate, can be mulched into a TS3 manual and then applied to one of your other BOFFs.

    There's also the benefit that counter command console is a mission reward, so it's good for a new player or a budget build, sure it might not be BiS but then you got limited resources and/or knowledge it's a decent console until you get better.
