Please, please, please, a fire at will button.
 
There's so many situations that you just want your crew to just keep firing everything that can be fired at your enemy (as far as conventional weapons go).

Please add this option so I don't wear out my hand/wrist/spacebar or go buy some peripheral to achieve the same. This is the sort of busywork I'd like to think we've moved past - especially since Trek seem to have other tactical elements to keep busy with.

This doesn't work for all weapons on your ship smarty pants.

I think the OP maybe referring to the fact that you can only set 1 forward and 1 after weapon on auto fire and no more. The rest you have to fire manually using space / ctrl + space.

Now, on a Miranda class isn't a huge issue.....

But trust me, when you get into an Escort and you're weaving about with cannons blazing, you dont have the fingers to be lining up your shot, hammering the space bar once per second, then hitting Ctrl+Space for the torpedoes.

And thats BEFORE you start having to be concerned with the cooldowns on your officer abilities and trying to bank around whilst having your shields shot to hell.

Plus, it appears that the game seems to have an issue with torpedoes and cannons all trying to fire manually. Sometimes mine just don't bother even though they go into cooldown (energy levels full).

In short, considering that auto-fire is already in for 1 Fore + 1 Aft, theres no reason why it cant be allowed for all fore + all aft.

Remember, theres a reason why sophisticated ships with weaponry aren't just manned by one person.

Go to keybinds and change "shot all weapons" from ALT + Space to Space. Enjoy.

Who's this will fella,and why do you want to fire at him?


Could not resist.

You can keybind all your weapons to fire to any key you chose, I have my spacebar setup to "fire everything".

He's talking about auto-firing all weapons i.e. repeated firing without the need for repeatedly pressing a button, not rebinding the fire all weapons to a key which you press repeatedly. Note the bits in red:
