I did some very quick testing (and I stress very):

Flank on Tribble with Covert
Your Compression Bolt Setting dealt 365 (604) shield damage to Tactical Drone.
Your Compression Bolt Setting deals 809 (855) Plasma Damage to Tactical Drone.
Quote:
Nonflank on Tribble with Covert
Your Compression Bolt Setting dealt 365 (512) shield damage to Tactical Drone.
Your Compression Bolt Setting deals 619 (807) Plasma Damage to Tactical Drone.

Flank on live server (same exact character)
Your Compression Bolt Setting dealt 365 (604) shield damage to Tactical Drone.
Your Compression Bolt Setting deals 654 (761) Plasma Damage to Tactical Drone.

Nonflank on live server
Your Compression Bolt Setting dealt 365 (512) shield damage to Tactical Drone.

I'm not good at math, but this looks like a 25%-30% increase in flank damage. Granted, it's not a great test as I've only shot once for each test. But it's enough to see the increase.

On the bright side, Acute Senses provides a 25% resistance to flank damage. I'm just worried that not every race has access to it, while it seems every race has access to Covert on Tribble.
