Space Combat STO

Legendary Scimitar Cannon Build

This is a fun and effective cannon build – I’ve had a 511k DPS Infected Elite run it, but it really shines in general scenarios! It’s quickly become one of my favorite builds to play around in.

I utilize Photonic Officer, Boimler, and Unconventional Systems for cooldowns. Since I’m utilizing four activated Universal Consoles, Unconventional Systems is huge and I’m using 3 procs for it: Tractor Beams, Jam Sensors, Scramble Sensors.

Being a dreadnought means that it hurts for speed, so in addition to the standard Competitive Rep engines and Evasive Maneuvers doff, the Flagship Technologies set also helps with turn rate. Here is a Gravity Kills run where I collected 21/30 particles in this ship:
