A 1-ship 8472 build would have no prayer. It does not have the defensive/survival upgrades like the Sphere or Voyager (or Sulu, etc).

Off the top of my head, I might venture...
Bioship Alpha (38)
GenKhan (4)
The Weak Will Perish (5)
Flagship Gen Fed (10) (free evade; free 2nd action to ship #2)

Generic Bioship (36)
Bioship Alpha Pilot (6)

SP = 99


There is not a lot of wiggle room with the 2-ship build, since ships take up 74 SP. Then, presumably, you'll run a flagship for another 10 SP, putting you at 84 SP. Unless you go with 2 generic pilots, you'll run the Bioship Alpha Pilot at 6 SP, putting you up to 90 SP....leaving you 10 SP for a 2nd captain (ReliantKhan if you don't have GenKhan) and/or any other upgrades.

Don't forget that if you're playing in a collective event using the boosters that you are also only building to 90 points rather than the usual 100.

I see what you are saying Scott, but I was thinking that the SI would allow you to steal armor from the Borg to give you the advantage.

A pure faction 8472 build will not cut it. If you have bioship alpha and then a cheaper ship from another faction then you can get something that works as ship pure however.

In a pure game, I took out spheres with bioship alpha and Voyager both pure.

As to beating the borg, the tandem of Bioship Alpha and Voyager have been a popular fleet in my area and beat the Borg more often than not. Definitely not pure faction though, especially on the bioship.

Because he is using the Independent Flagship Resource to make the ship Species 8472/Independent faction.
