That leaves federation with two two options in searching.
Search while going slow in a group this takes ages so
Federation goes to full impulse and starts searching....
"Idiot players lose at PvP" - is that news?

1) You will NOT find Klingons by looking for them. I have no idea why Fed vessels are scouring the map - if you head straight for us, we fly away. Klingons will find you (although sometimes it takes a lot longer than you'd expect with height/speed problems, we also need to find the other klingons and there's a fairly short visual range).
2) There is no point in going full impulse to anywhere - in all likelihood the Klingons are already right next to him, and the map doesn't really have any useful features... where is he going? what does he hope to find there? A pot of gold with a leprechaun guarding it? Inquiring minds need to know!!

The first rule of space/ground PvP is 'get in a group, stay in a group. If/when you respawn, get back in a group'. True for Klingon and Federation players alike. If you violate that rule, then you're on your own.

It's really not complicated - and the skills required in T2 are not massive. Until there's a klingon cruiser in T2 you really shouldn't be having problems unless you face a fleet team.

As someone pointed out in a different thread:
"Open beta was a disaster for Klingons in T2, without a cruiser we lost nearly every T2 arena. The only thing to change between open beta and now, is you..."

[although the stupid PvP queue is different, and is absolutely wrecking a large percentage of PvP in T2 - to the exclusive detriment of the Federation team, but that has nothing to do with 'omg cloak' or 'bops from hell' or whatever]
