When I hear these phrases, 'tanking', 'healer' etc. Why are you desperately trying to apply the mechanics of other games to STO?

Tanking is a universal phrase that can apply to any kind of mmo not just fantasy. And Honestly I *could* have used a more trekish feel phrase for healing. But most people understand what I say when I say heal. And frankly that's how the abilities function. They put pretty green numbers above you and HEAL you.

Would you prefer if I called it repairing?

I think you need to learn the definiton of armor tanking, because there is nothing remotely like that in this game, I am aware of what janeway did in Voyager, and repairing your hull in this game is nowhere near as effective as armor tanking in Eve which I am assuming the OP means so think before trying to be a smug smartass.

Watch STO videos posted by devs much? its THEIR WORDS in some of there videos.

Anyway, given how much damage is done from torps and the shield regen model FAR outwieghs hull regen, I doubt armor tanking will be viable.
