there's an arrow that points downward on your impulse bar if you're moving, it only says stop, but if you're stopped, it'll say reverse

fair warning: if you're in reverse long enough, it starts draining all your power levels, up to 20 points from each subsystem

Easy enough. Click on the button under your throttle on the screen. If you are moving forwars it will bring you to a stop. And it will change to a down arrow. One more click will put you into reverse. Of you can use the Q/E (thrrow down/up) keys to throttle. You hit Q to throttle down. After your hit stop on the throttle, you can go back one more click for reverse.

Q key = Slow down, stop, reverse
E key = Speed up
R key = Full speed

just some hints:

If at full stop: R will put you at Full Speed
If moving R will put you in Reverse

WARNING: Reverse Power will start draining all your systems power levels

This is very important. After about five seconds reversing (in normal, not sector, space) you'll start getting a stacking debuff that reduces your power levels.

You can easily clear the debuff (no matter how many stacks) by disabling reverse quickly, and enabling reverse again.

I set my impulse controls to my mouse wheel.

Wheelminus "throttleadjust -.20"
Wheelplus "throttleadjust .20"
Shift+wheelminus "throttleadjust -.01"
Shift+wheelplus "throttleadjust .01"

I changed zoom to:

Alt+wheelminus "AdjustCamDistance 5"
Alt+wheelplus "AdjustCamDistance -5"
Control+wheelminus "AdjustCamDistance 20"
Control+wheelplus "AdjustCamDistance -20"

a litte STO history.... In Beta flying in reverse was the most common tactic in combat.... it's why they added the drains.....
