    I would be very interested in learning how you managed 380 CtrlX plus 589 EPG. Those are most impressive numbers, given that the two compete for space in almost every venue. I'm at 260 and 400, and I thought that was near max. Although I suspect there is a "point of diminishing returns", I would definitely like to know more. Would you be willing to talk, please?

      EPG:

      100 from captain skills
      15 from Superior Astrophysicist personal trait
      50 from Temporal spec
      53.1 from Bajor Defense deflector [CtrlX/EPG] [EPG]x4
      26.5 from secondary deflector with [CtrlX/EPG], [CtrlX], and [EPG] mods, among others
      78.8 from Exotic Particle Field Exciter [EPG] (science console, R&D system)
      30 from Retrofitted Assimilator (universal console, lockbox/exchange)
      39.4 from Chronometric Capacitor (tactical console, mission reward)
      39.4 each from Restorative Particle Focuser [CtrlX] [EPG] (science console, fleet res lab) x5.


      Control:
      100 from captain skills
      10 from BOFF racial traits (1x "K-13 Survivor Science" BOFF)... I could get more than one but didn't.
      42.5 from Bajor Defense deflector (as above)
      26.5 from secondary deflector (as above)
      30 from Retrofitted Assimilator (universal console, lockbox/exchange)
      39.4 from Conductive RCS Accelerator [CtrlX] (engineering console, R&D system)
      26.3 each from Restorative Particle Focuser [CtrlX] [EPG] (science console, fleet res lab) x5.

      Figures assume all equipment upgraded to epic XV.

      Diminshing returns: don't actually exist in STO except for damage resistance. However yes a +30 increase on top of 400 is not as beneficial as a +30 on top of 250....

      The essential point though is, Gravity Well range caps out at Control = 400, so there is very little if any reason to go significantly past that.
