Tactical Melee Build

The Mind Meld Device from the Discovery reputation finally makes melee more than just a Barbie choice in STO! I intended this build to test the limits of pure melee, so all of the kits are centered around buffing my damage: That is a combined 91.2% Melee Crit Chance and 642% Melee Crit Severity! Those […]
