Dont forget, this is SPACE combat. I've found being directly above your target works best. It counts as a broadside AND frontal torpedos still work. With a slight touch of acceleration, the rear ones work too. The thing I like most is, a little shift to the right, and you're on the target's right side shield, a little shift to the left and you're on their left side shield...rinse and repeat for fore and aft...slow and speed up. The enemy cant turn under you to get a different facing, he cant fly over you, and the enemy AI is such that they think VERY 2 dimensionally so they wont dive or climb to change their facing.
