    RESEARCH: Maximize Science Powers with Deflector Array

    Post by McPhearson on Thu Jun 03, 2010 3:36 pm

    So I have respec'd one of my extra science BOs to try and make my ship more efficient. This led me to try and pick science abilities that matched a particular deflector that I could purchase somewhere in the game (blue, purple, ect). I thought I had matched up pretty good, but got to checking some details and still missed the ball. Don't get me wrong, I love my new abilities (shield transfer II, Energy Siphon II, Tractor Beam Repulsor III) but I didn't write down the correct boosting system names and now I'm aware that my deflector does not entirely match my skills.

    Question: On deflectors, do power like +21 DEFLECTORS work toward DEFLECTOR DISH and DEFLECTOR FIELD? Or are "each" of those a seperate area and thus, you must exactly match the names on the deflector ship component to gain the +?? bonus?

    I was hoping that, like tactical consoles, deflectors might work toward either of the other two deflector areas like the "+?? to beam weapons" console helps any ship energy type weapon vs obtaining a specific "+30 Tachyon Beam Weapons" console, which gives more, but only works with a specific type. Make sense?

    I'll be looking into this more and will post my results as I find it. Feel free to contribute to this thread for the benefit of all fleet parties interested.

    If I understand your question, the answer is no.

    Using your example, a +21 deflector applies only to deflectors and do not enhance follow on deflector abilities like deflector dish, deflector field or spatial anomoly. Same applies to sensors and sensor array / sensor probes / astrometrics as well as emmiters and tractor beam / hazzard system / photonic theory. The points only define the strength of the items in the deflector. If I understand this correctly, the deflectors and what they have plus the consoles that modify them exist for the strengthening of the skills and not to enhance each other.

    That's not to say that deflector abilities don't work together, though. They do for the skills they affect. As an example, a deflector array with +28 sensors, +22 sensor array plus consoles that add to either of these will enhance all Jam Sensors II and III, but will have no impact whatsoever on Science Team, a completely different area of deflector arrays (Deflectors, Deflector Field)

    I hope that's clear and that it's been helpful.
