I understand about Science Team, Rotate Shields etc but thought what's supposed to be the Federation's major damage dealer might have more of an effect.

Another fight saw me firing on a ship, then it disappeared (I'm assuming cloaked), meanwhile I was being hammered from seemingly nowhere, took my shields down, and hull down to 47%, then the supposedly "cloaked" ship appeared right next to me - was this a graphics glitch?

Federation seem to suck badly at PvP, could we not have auto-teaming on entry if you're not on a team? Standard Fed tactics seem to be to run into a Klingon ball (usually 5 ships or so), die quickly, rinse and repeat - I find myself flying around waiting for a Fed ship that's not doing that and hoping they'll team (and of course wait). Perhaps having Fed and Klingon only channels might help, or being able to see where all your allies are on a map.
Regarding PvP, it's the player, not the game most of the time. You're talking about the feds sucking at PvP, I've faced off with some good fed players. They're the ones that usually get the value of having wingmen. You have to understand, most fed players only dabble in pvp as they have a pve game, whereas klingon side it tends to catch on more quickly as pvp's all we have.
