That said:

As itīs awfully boring for me to level up due to having done it so many times already ( on both fed and klingon side) I want to go to endgame as fast as I can. Meaning I used on ALL my toons either a raptor OR on fed side an escort to go from T2 -T5. At T5 I switched ships and used my 1st respec. I levelled up via PvE only on fed side and same for my klinks. PvE only for 3 of them until endgame. My first klingon was leveled only via PvP but that was at start of the game and there was ots of PvP going on. Using PvP to level on kling side is nearly impossible due to being almost dead. I can level much much faster now by using special episodes of the featured episode series ( the first 4 of the devidian for example; they give good points and are done fast; also more entertaining). Also I levelled only solo. But lets be honest. Where can you really level with other players? Yes the Patrols on fed side can do that but you seldom meet somone here. And I dont want to waste my time looking for players when I can be much faster alone.

2. What ship(s) do you fly at cap? For each, primarily PvE, PvP or both? Group or solo?
My klingons used Tac/Raptor, Sci/Bop, Engi/NeghVar, Engi/VorCha.
Primarily PvP or Kerrat. I use Pugs as I find them. Grouping on kling side at endgame is quite easy as most of the time we are outnumbered much and happy for assistance.
On fed side I really cant remember well.
I had many tacts who only used escorts at endgame. Mostely the Defiant.
On my engis i used the Sovereign.
On my scis I used a Defiant, a Recon Sci vessel and now an Intrepid refit.
On fed side I used to play PvP more seldom. Only one toon was PvP only. I played STFīs often and was forced to use the horrible grouping mechanic. Hope that improves now with season 4.

3. Which ship(s) do you think are currently overpowered? PvE, PvP, or both? Specifically why?
EVERY ship is overpowered in PvE cause the AI of the NPCīs is quite weak so every player captained ship is much better. In my opinion the term overpowered should unly be used in PvP. That said I think itīs not the ships that are OP but the broken skills right now. When you fix them again itīs quite balanced. At least in my opinion.
Fed players are often complaining that Carriers are but no they are not. They go down fast when you focus fire on them. But you need some burst to crack the nut. And this is the main problem. When I encounter fed pugs in pvp the mostely fly cruisers and sci ships. Where are the escort on fed side. I mean yes good PvP fleets use them and they are dangerous when properly supported. I mean fed side uses support ships and then complain that they cant take down a carrier. Itīs not the carrier is OP but lack of teamwork, no focus fire, no assistance to escort, no teaming up on fed side. A good fed pvp group will roflstomp any kling group.

4. Which ship(s) do you think are currently underpowered? PvE, PvP, or both? Specifically why?
NONE in PvE.
As for PvP. I didnt like the Raptor. At all. It somehow feels strange when turning. It plays MUCH differently than a Fed Defiant. Remove itīs long neck and make the saucer a lil wider. Give the turning axis a lil more to the front of the ship.
The BīRel is a joke. Husanak wrote is well some posts before.
The Deep space science vessel on fed side is seldom used at endgame imo. The additional engi ensgn slot seems to be ....meeeh. Same for the VAranus on king side. Bad turing rate and Bo layout.

5. What feature of your favorite ships do you like the most? As in, console configurations, station configurations, aesthetics, special abilities, etc.?
On kling side the BoP cause of the awsome possibilies it offers. It looks very nice. The VorCha also cause of the looks and the Bo layout.
On Fed side the Sovereign and the Defiant. Both awsome in looks and how they handle ingame.
I love the Intrepid refit because of the looks with the reman shield.
