Move the DBB icon so its to the RIGHT of your DHCs. Why, you ask? Because STO handles the firing key in a left-to-right order, so if you press Fire Phasers, the game activates them in order. If you have BO3 charged, and hit fire with you DBB in the left-most spot, guess what happens? It fires, drains your weapons power by 50, and then your cannons fire, doing almost no damage. So yeah, move that real quick, so the 2 cannons fire first, only draining around 24 power, and there's a split second of "chargeup" for the BO3 so most of that power will be refunded when the BO3 fires.
Good to know, thank you.
