A science or tactical captain could do it, but an engineer will have a hard time.
Right, so you basically wind up trying to fly it as a poor man's escort, rather than just fly an escort. That's why I gave up on it. You'd think a "Dreadnaught" would be specced to deal damage, but since it inherits the Gal-R's Eng-heavy Boff layout and abysmal turn rate it's stuck in the same tank/support role.
