the impulse button is not there during combat so it makes it impossible to get distance between your ship and an enemy ship. to raise shield strength and hull structural integrity. not having this limits maneuverability also.
*Full reverse is way to slow, we need to be able control reverse speed
I have the fastest way to get a quick sustained burst in such a situation is to go to full impulse, emergency power to engines, Evasive Maneuvers, and finally...engine battery.
Granted it is a bit involved; however, the sustained speed burst will put alot of distance between you and your grave. I've used this escape maneuver very successfully. While zipping, reversing shield polarity keeps me from getting creamed by the last shot.
I duck behind something, sit still until shields go down, then cloak. It works very well.
