The case is with the energy presets that the lowest energy level is now 15. With full energy to weapons, preset 1, engine and aux are set to their minimum, 15. It means you are crawling. I have started readjusting it and, indeed, in this mission, the freighter outrun me a couple of times. I had to switch to full engine a couple of times to catch up.
I always had issues with destroying the stations. There are too many BoP's and your allies do not follow you always. However since the latest patch, they seem to be a lot weaker.
I've actually tried full engine power and being cloaked. The Freighter still runs as I am coming and outruns me. I can only catch up at Full Impulse and than I lose that minute I am attacked by the other ships.
Easiest way to lower the difficulty would be to have the option of planting explosives on the Freighters and blowing them up. Other than that, if you want me to shoot them down...make sure they aren't running towards enemy ships and slow them down.
Cruisers do not suck at DPS and Escorts are not Tanks. If you think this, you need to reread the definition of Tank.

One shot it all. Easiest play though 've ever had... Sorry. (really fun tho)
Kind of confused by the challenge peeps are having, maybe i was lucky with gear drops, maybe a new warp core - no idea don't recall any amazing luck with drops and don't have any zen store stuff to help me bar my red mater capatcitor. Was fun and pretty much a push over, I'm not sure what advice i can give you guys beside the obvious
But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet, Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
Lifer since beta its never been so good! So now can everyone chill this game is going in the right direction
So, I figured with the new content to delete my old Klingon and build a new one learning from the mistakes and get a try on the new content...yeah.... I came to the space portion of this mission.
Now keep in mind, maybe I am messing it up or something...but here I go anyways.
1. Optional Objective: You are asking me to keep a B'rel full of Klingon Redshirts alive...would of been better with at least a D7 Cruiser.
2. Enemy numbers: Dear god! The only positive is the lack of Raptors this time around. O_O Can we lower the numbers or at least ad a few Martok cruisers and more BoPs to back us up?
3. Reward: I called attention to it before and I will again...you are giving away the same BOff in this mission that was the reward in Bringing Down The House...
And finally, the thing making me post this.
4. The Freighters: I am finding these things outrunning my B'rel and even sensing me coming when I am even cloaked. WHAT THE HECK!
Now, I can't be the only one with issues in this mission and really, I won't be playing it again till I hear it is fixed.
EDIT: I do love the new content to the game and think you did an overall good job but this mission needs to get fixed. As it is now, I find it unplayable.
Ugh I know right? I used to always skip this mission as I went in and died fast then I came to the freighters late and what do you know they disappeared! little buggers are like flies that you just cant swat. Then of course the spawn point is so dang far from the action. to top it all off your allies are totally useless and sit around while the other ships pummel you further down the line.
To compare I always found the missions after this much easier/enjoyable. of course until the stupid help the federation beat your people missions. Finally i beat it on my joined trill recently, but I sent her all the best stuff from my Orion (who doesnt care about house politics anyway so )
