I completely agree with the theory here as well as the principles involved with reacting to an ambnush; however, again, it is easier said than done.

It has been pointed out that coordination and team work are essential, that a mix of ship types works best.Though this may be true, the average Fed vs. Klingon fights I have been in involved a random group of ships showing up, typically escorts alone. Only once did my science ship pair up with another and a group of escorts.

We were all strangers, though, and without any prior coordination, the science ships went first while the escorts zipped off for the kill.

I just don't see how this can work well without prior contact and a prior team composition that enters the fray together. It's never happened in the PvP stranger set up in my experience.
