You're really quite ignorant on the auto-fire issue aren't you. I mean, you know; there is so much more to do in STO combat, its really impossible to really write it all down here. Especially for those escort and science vessel pilots; they have a lot on their mind during combat, the last thing they should have to do is mindlessly press the space bar every 4 seconds to utilize all of their beam weapons.
I don't think anyone is asking for auto-fire on all projectile weapons; just auto-fire on all beam and cannon weapons which provide shield damage.
Seriously, just because you disagree with something doesn't make the idea stupid. Why are you so insistent on trying to convince people that all there is to do in combat is push the space bar? That is far from the truth. Honestly, if you want to develop tendinitis in your hands or carpel tunnel, be my guest; don't use auto-fire. But for the rest of us, let us play the game the way we want to.
