I'm guessing my keyboard is going bad, cause I'm always losing Target Lock, and I'm always inadvertently cycling to the 'next' target as I'm firing on enemies.
It's as though I'm hitting the Tab key, but I'm not. (it seems to be happening when I hit Space/Fire)
I checked, and my Space bar (or any other key) is not also bound to the 'target enemy' command.
So I can only assume my keyboard is going bad... unless anyone else has this same problem?
I know that in CO, especially the Zombie Apocalypse PvP map, targeting used to be a nightmare, but that was more due to pet spam and targeting environmental object, than anything else. (oh, and targeting things too far to even attack, while ignoring the enemy in melee range)
But I don't recall ever having problems like this in STO before.
Interesting...you might not be alone...
A cple of fleetmates and I were doing some fleet actions the last night and one of them complained of the same thing, constantly changing targets seemingly at will.
And then later, when on the Tholian ground maps, I was having that...kept winding up targeting bad guys out of range rather than the bad guy who was right beside me shooting..
Donno..gonna re-examine my keyboard binds today to see if one's out of whack...but I don't know how that would have happened.

Re-loading the defaults doesn't work. And some of the hotkeys for the toolbar don't work after pressing the assigned button on the keyboard. And yes, I cleared the keybind for it as well and reassigned it.
It not just you. I'm having the same problem. Also I've made no adjustments to the UI. It started for me yesterday. I was on an away team mission and I notices something was wrong when trying to run that my character would act like he is hesitating. Also for no reason he would come out of running back to walking. And then I had the same targeting problem in space. I will say I hate getting destroyed because the target keeps switching. It's really annoying. At first I just thought my mouse and keyboard are glitching on me but then I ran into this. So it's nice to know I'm not the only one. Hopefully we can get a fix soon.
I have similar problems. I reset my UI to default and went through each item resetting them. When I fire upon a target, if the target dies before my last beam fires I will then fire on the nearest enemy. I am set to only fire on targeted enemies, so that means I will aggro the bad guy, then have to target him to continue to kill him.
