Hi

I use the 360 controller and find it very easy to use once i set my bindings.

Here is my layout and key binds

Space
Left Stick - Steering
Right Stick - Up (Throttle up .20) Down (Throttle down .-20)
Start button - Reverse Thruster (I set this for emergency maneuvers you don't need it if you don't want it)
B - Full Impulse (Toggle)
A - Fire Torpedoes
X - Fire Phasers and Balance Shields (combining these into 1 key press has saved my bacon on more then 1 occasion)
Y - Toggle Throttle (Using this and start followed by evasive to turn on the spot in less then 2 seconds might just get you out a tight spot)
(By Combining my tray abilities in this way i can set up my alpha attack with 4 simple buttons)

(Alpha Attacks)
Right Trigger + X - Tray 1 Ability 1 and 2
Right Trigger + Y - Tray 1 Ability 3 and 4
Right Trigger + B - Tray 1 Ability 5 and 6
Right Trigger + A - Tray 1 Ability 7 and 8
Left Stick (Push to click) Tray 1 Ability 9 (For me this is set to cloak)
Right Stick (push to click) Tray 1 Ability 10 (0) (for me this is Evasive)

(Beta Attacks)
Right Bumper + X - Tray 2 Abilities 1 and 2
Right Bumper + Y - Tray 2 Abilities 3 and 4
Right Bumper + B - Tray 2 Abilities 5 and 6
Right Bumper + A - Tray 2 Abilities 7 and 8

(Heals)
Left Trigger + X - Tray 3 Abilities 1 and 2
Left Trigger + Y - Tray 3 Abilities 3 and 4
Left Trigger + B - Tray 3 Abilities 5 and 6
Left Trigger + A - Tray 3 Abilities 7 and 8

Below is my key binds. Copy and paste into a txt document (call it Space360.txt) place it in your startrek online install in the live dir
load the game and in the chat box type /bind_load_file Space360.txt this will then set up your controller if you need any help message me in game and i'll be happy to assist. Also refer to the orginal forum post where i learned to do this, Click Here

Hope this is useful

*edit*
Please note i use the follow target camara option so i haven't set this up in my key bind.
also these is set up for my Refit Tac escort and works well for that type of ship. if your unsure just give me a shout in game and i will try to help you out as much as possable.
