VS heavier enemies like battlecruisers, I just spam redistribute to forward shield button and brace for impact when i see their torpedos comming.

No ship last longer than 30 seconds, guaranteed. If they get close, use one of the special speed engines that give you 25% turn speed on thrusters only and just spin.

PHotons would probably be best for this but as the guy before me said, quantum just look cooler so I'm using those lol...
This is a decent tactic if you use phasers, but disruptors drop off damage significantly at range. Have to get up close and personal to do real damage. I usually match speed with my victim and hammer starboard/rear shields until they drop, then hit Attack Pattern Alpha/High Yield and fire. Even battleship hulls fall apart pretty quickly under that barrage.
