Welcome to STO BETTER!
Welcome to the STO Build Evolution Tracker and Technical Education Resource (STO BETTER)! Whether you're here for a bevy of tools to analyze your options for making your own ship or to check out our builds, this site exists as a resource for all fellow shipbuilders.
We have a number of guides ranging from basic shipbuilding for endgame/F2P players to more advanced guides and mechanics as well as a tier list for pricier purchases and detailed tools to help you analyze and improve your builds. The tools have been designed to help analyze and answer your questions on starship builds. To use a tool, open the link, make a copy, and fill it out for your personal use. If it breaks, no sweat! Come back and grab a fresh copy and you'll be good to go.
Our builds are meant for flying a wide range of Elite content, including missions and TFOs, and punch above their price tag if flown well. Each build comes with a detailed write-up behind its design decisions and analysis using the linked tools as well as commentary on piloting and control. If you have a question, please see our FAQ.
Thanks for visiting and hopefully you find something that helps you to STO BETTER!

This table contains links to all of our builds. You can filter and sort by various types to find what you're looking for. All have been flown successfully on Elite difficulty.
We evaluate our builds in a variety of ways. This table reflects scores on the Infected: Space Elite map for the following performance metrics:
All builds but especially damage builds are evaluated for damage-per-second (DPS). We list the record maximum DPS
Tanks are evaluated for the percentage of total enemy attacks they draw for the team (% atks)
Supports are evaluated for the team's highest debuff percentage (% DB) as well as the number of team personal best records that were achieved alongside that build (PBA)
You can find more detailed performance metrics on the individual build pages, including on other maps.
