Here are some tips:

Move your QSS, Transwarps, Fireworks and any not essential abilities to the 4th bar and go to it when you need it. (This includes worthless abilities like: Abandon Ship, Ramming Speed and Fleet Support.) Remove your weapons from your main bars, they have their own window, use it.

I hope this helps.

PS: Here is my setup on a Tac/Escort build:
In your screen you have your Officer Tray above your Ship Tray. How do you move those elements around. I'm new to STO, only 1 week in, I have just got the Galaxy Cruiser, and my officers abilities are stacked and unusable. They over lap my ship abilities. I play at 1680x1050 too. I've searched the Wiki, google, and these forums and find nothing. Your screen shot verifies it is possible. I can't start my own thread as the red text above says I can only post.
