I can see this on YouTube already. One of the Captains has an alien on screen, trying to talk to it while repetadly pressing a button every second. Alien Captain and Alien First Officer exchange a nervous glance at each other as they wonder WTF is wrong with this 'human' they've just met.

Phasers (and cannons, if I remember correctly from when I played Klingon) are semi-auto fire to begin with. You don't have to hit it every second. I for one am for full auto-fire except for torpedoes, but just saying that it took me a few days of maniacally mashing until I figured out that you can hit it less frequently and do the same damage, so that may help you guys until they implement full auto-fire.

Hello,

The captain did not do anything he just sat in the chair. That would be a bit dull for a game tho but if you put on the star screen saver and sat back in your chair yell commands at passing family members.

I don't mind the "button mashing" but what really starts to bother me after a while is the mouse steering. I am better at controlling the ship with the mouse, and so I have to hold both mouse buttons down the whole time I am in battle. After a while it starts to get very uncomfortable.

I still want a chase cam so I can use my flight stick. It would solve my mouse problem, and it would feel a lot more natural in the "button mashing" department as well.

Autofire is optional, how comes you don't want us to have it if you don't have to use it ? Are you a game nazi or something ?

It is very annoying. I have a full beam setup, I don't want to have to hit the space bar every couple seconds to keep shooting. Screw the power drain, that's what weapon batteries are for. I gt macro keys on my keyboard, I should really configure one...

i see a lot of people missing the point here.. the point is.. you can only get one foward weapon and one rear weapon to auto fire. i personally know you dont have to mash the spacebar every micro second to fire. but since i dont ever look at my weapon cool down timers etc. i just mash it anyway. as i am more focussed on my facing speed and state of my shields and abbilities.

also.. you can get consoles that will recharge your power faster.. thus letting you fire more than 2 lasers at any given time with no power drain.. mr it just drains your power faster. personally i think it should be all user optional. auto fire everything nothing or some things.

So a Klingon, a Ferengi and a Vulcan walk into a seedy space bar...

Oh wait, you're talking about another hive of scum and villainy.

More like a game terrorist. I don't know why he would want to be something so terrible.
