Torpedo boat

Post  Tia on Sat Apr 28, 2012 11:33 pm

We've had this discussion allot on the fleet chat and I thought I might put this up to discuss how one could make a viable torpedo boat.

A tetryon beam array and the rest are Hargh'peng torps and quantumn?

I dunno the quantum torpedoes have a long cool down time. Maybe photons or trasphasics. The energy weapon procs don;t happen often enough to make much of a difference unless you use polarized tetryon beams...hmmm.

There is the one (Breen?) mission that gives as a reward option a Rapid Reload Transphasic torpedo launcher; if you ran it multiple times I suppose you could stock up on them and mount them all in one ship?

Okay I guess I'll leave some of my dark secrets here. But you're not getting all of them! Also please keep in mind this build was meant for a science ship, any one of the top tier ones should work with a little tweaking. In theory.

Intrepid – Retrofit.

Weapons:
Photon Torpedo Launcher
Photon Torpedo Launcher
Photon Torpedo Launcher

Disruptor Turret
Disruptor Turret
Disruptor Turret

Equipment:
M.A.C.O Graviton Deflector Array
Assimilated Subtranswarp Engines
M.A.C.O Resilient Shield Array

Devices: Up to you.

Consoles:
Eng: Ablative Generator - Ignore this if you don't have the Intrepid retro.
Eng: Neutronium Alloy OR Electroceramic Hull Plating - EHP only recommended as an alternative when fighting Borg.
Eng: Assimilated Module

Sci: Flow Capacitor
Sci: Flow Capacitor
Sci: Flow Capacitor
Sci: Field Generator - These are a little hard to obtain so if you want to replace it with something else you can.

Tac: Photon Detonation Chamber
Tac: Photon Detonation Chamber

Power Levels:
48/25 Weapons
75/55 Shields
56/25 Engines
125/95 Auxiliary

Bridge Officers:
Tac. Lt. – HYT1 / HYT2
Eng. Lt. – EPtS1 / EPtS2
Ens. Sci. – HE1
Lt. Cmd. Sci. – Tractor1 / ST2 / Tachyon3
Cmd. Sci. – Tractor1 / TSS2 / Tachyon3 / CPB3

Duty Officers:
Projectile Weapons Officer
Projectile Weapons Officer
Tractor Beam Specialist
Development Lab Scientist
Development Lab Scientist

...I get the feeling I'm going to regret sharing this.

Edit: I should note that this build has limited use in PvP due to a recent "change" that was done to Starship Power Insulators and the sheer number of Borg deflectors out there.

Nice build I wonder if it could work on a cruiser somehow...

I guess the biggest thing is getting weapons/skills that'll get through those shields so the torps can do their work on the hull, yeah?

Well that's why you can always use transphasics which reminds me, proving grounds....

The question on torpedo type boils down, I think, to whether the penetration percentage on transphasics is worth the damage tradeoff when putting them up against photons. I've yet to see transphasics deliver enough damage through the shields to justify what a photon can do to an unshielded hull vs what a transphasic does to an unshielded hull.
