I am about level 15, I took the faster more maneuverable bird of prey (with 3 universal Bridge Officer slots) when I upgraded my ship, and have nice blue-quality dual heavy cannons on the front.
But this K'norr escort is really tearing me up. He can fire at me when cloaked, and he's really crazy maneuverable.
I have 1 Engineer right now for the shield heal, one science officer at the Lt. slot with energy drain and hazard emitters, and my tactical officer using High Yield torpedoes.
Any advice on how best to deal with this guy? Thanks in advance!
Ok, sounds like you are having difficulty dealing with his speed. As in he is circling you or just not staying in your firing arc well. I would get rid of the Drain and get a Tractor Beam 2. That way your drain duration is not dependant on your Aux power. You can shuffle some more power into engines, and grab him and make him stay put while you Pew Pew.
Just what I could think of without any changing of Gear.
