I have a 130 build that I go to when I don't have time to make a build specific for an event/op.

I.R.W. Valdore [30]
- Donatra 6 (Captain) [4]
- - Cheat Death [6]
Ship Total: 40 SP

Scimitar [38]
- Gul Dukat 7 (Captain) [6]
- Interphase Generator [3]
- Interphase Generator [3]
Ship Total: 50 SP

I.R.W. Praetus [14]
- Romulan 1 (Captain) [0]
- Cloaked Mines [3]
- Cloaked Mines [3]
Ship Total: 20 SP

Federation Attack Squadron (Federation Attack Squadron) [20]
Ship Total: 20 SP

Fleet Total: 130 SP

My 90 Point build is the same as above just dropping the Valdore.
Once the Praetus drops its mines, its only task is to work with the fighters to force their action dependent ship(s) to bump and lose actions. That usually means no shooting to maintain cloak. This blocking would especially help if that ship/fleet is specifically designed to combat my build as I do bring this build somewhat regularly. With Donatra, it is nice to have the Praetus at 4 dice with a target lock on what ever ship I'm trying to block for that last minute kill. This build pisses everyone off and very few builds have been able to beat it. What are your last-minute go to builds?

This is just a fun, simple one for casual play. I've used a few variants of this one, but it is my common go to for just friendly games. You can always drop one of the fighters to upgrade the ships to the named versions (and one the the Borg/Dominion one) and get another upgrade or two.

Since we got the phaser upgrades I have been playing the Defiant more. It's one of my faveorite ships in Trek, so it's nice to be able to play it when it has some teeth. Usually I go with;

24 Defiant
04 Sisko (Defiant)
03 Riker (Hood)
03 Quark (Improved Deflector Screens)
02 Type 8 Phasers
03 Up Graded Phasers
02 Systems Upgrade
05 Multi Adaptive Shields

Sometimes I'll add an admiral or if I'm playing faction pure I switch out Quark for Paris, but this is where I startf. I have paired it up with a loaded up Equinox (very fun), the Enterpise E, DS9, the Ch'Tang. It's a fun ship now that we have the proper tools for it

Strangely Enough, I am also partial to a defiant with silly amounts of upgrades on her:

U.S.S. Defiant [24]
- Jean-Luc Picard 9 (Captain) [6]
- Systems Upgrade [2]
- - Multi-Adaptive Shields [5]
- Type 8 Phaser Array [2]
- Upgraded Phasers [3]
- Tom Paris [4]
- William T. Riker [3]
Ship Total: 49 SP

Fleet Total: 49 SP

Sometimes ill swap Paris for Sulu for even more evade and additional conversions, Ill normally pair it with the mirror defiant with Admiral Worf on board for out of combat shootyness, or a bioship to act as a half brick.

My group plays faction pure and 120 OP's, Even though I have tried to convince my group it should be 130 not just for blind builds.

I call this one "Sit and Stasis Awhile"

Klingon Starship (Vor'cha Class) [26]
- Martok 8 (Captain) [5]
Ship Total: 31 SP

I.K.S. Somraw [18]
- Kor 6 (Captain) [4]
- Projected Stasis Field [5]
Ship Total: 27 SP

I.K.S. Gr'oth [18]
- Gowron 6 (Captain) [4]
- Projected Stasis Field [5]
Ship Total: 27 SP

Klingon Starship (Negh'var Class) [28]
- Worf 5 (Captain) [3]
- Drex [4]
Ship Total: 35 SP

Fleet Total: 120 SP

The gist is that Kor gets up front and pops his PSF and Martok allows him to also use his captain ability. Gowron is hanging in the back and is just there to +1 the other 2 and has a PSF of his own.

PSF is great because not only do you Drop their shields but the can not attack you. Oh, Voyager with Picard 9? Well, you won't attack and will die haveing only been a waste of points.

Most of these are relatively simple to play without a lot of exotic combos which I can appreciate. Cloaked mines and fighters though, brrrr.... I can see how they can be your goto though.

Don't have the list on me, but another simple and fun go to fleet is bare bones Klingons.

4 Vor'Cha Class ships
Martok
Worf
can't remember the other two captains off the top of my head.

Nothing fancy, no special combos, no cheesy mines. Just pure point and shoot Klingon firepower.

Vor'Cha's are good ships. If you're up against Sovereigns or Prometheus' with actions you might want to bring some kind of defense enhancement.

For Klingon defense, Kurn 5 (Drovana) is pretty good on the Koraga.

I don't have a favorite fleet so much as favorite 20/30/40/50SP ships that I mix and match.

For a whole fleet? My favorite is probably 4 unique Galors with Captains and thats it.
Kraxon/Reklar/Aldara/Trager with Dukat/Macet/Madred/filler

Sometimes the Koronak or Dreadnought get added

For a faction pure Dominion build, I really love this. Namely, because the Keldon is firing 11 dice then 9 dice, with TL AND BS!!!! And the fighters and Cruiser are very effective at hitting hard.

I had a go at understanding this build, but I am not sure how you are getting the TL and Battlestations on the Keldon, you can disable/discard using advanced tech to get one free action, but need to use the ships action to activate Jasad.

Also, the fighters don't count as a ship for either Jasad's ability or Standard Attack Formation. You would need another ship in the formation to fulfill those requirements and get you up to 11 dice.

Tournament Rules, Attack Squadrons section wrote:
7) Squadrons may not be affected by any card text that references a ship unless a) The ability is triggered by a Squadron Upgrade, b) The text specifies that it targets a Squadron, or c) It is triggered as part of an attack targeting a Squadron. Additionally, the upgrades on a Squadron may still be affected as if they were on a normal ship.

NOTE: This means cards that specifically target ships will not benefit squadrons (ex. Donatra, whose text specifies “all other friendly ships…”). Ships that also specifically require another ship be within range (ex. Prakesh, whose text specifies “if you are in range 1 of a friendly ship”) will not benefit from Squadrons, as they are not considered ships.

The ship ability is doing nothing for you and both Boheeka and Breen Aide are abit of overkill. With Dukat getting TL/BS and having Bokeeka there odds are you can get 5/5 hits without any issue.

As mentioned Standard Attack formation will do you no good here. And I'm guessing you're thinking that using Advanced Technology you can disable a shroud for TL and then discard it for BS and still do Jasad's action. With Advanced Technology could can on do one or the other a turn not both. Jasad's ability also doesn't work off the fighters.

The Fighters are also a bit overloaded.

The following will allow you to use Standard attack formation and as well allow you to get one volley off by having the Kraxon stuck up some damage that would likely be directed onto the Keldon.

Fighters - TL (6 dice attack with re-rolls)
Kraxon - Scan & AT for evade or TL (4 dice attack with 1 blank conversion, -1 def dice and possible TL)
