From EOGamer Star Trek Online Wiki
The Tactical class can be broken up into 2 subclasses.
- One is A tank class or meat shield, this way of playing is designed to take the brunt of the impact and deal damage to enemies to keep them away from less defensible classes.
- Another form of tactical class would be a DPS, or damage per second. This type of playing can deal significant damage quickly and can utilize stealth or cloaking technology.
