What is the deal with Klingon Bird of Prey (NPC)?? Any time I fight them lately I end up taking massive hull damage and quite often get destroyed within the first few seconds of the fight.
This happens, it appears, because their torpedos are doing massive damage to shields. When I hit a ship with a High Yield torpedo spread it does some damage to shields but not all that much. Where the BoP HY takes my shields down almost entirely in one shot.
I'm currently flying a 'Defiant' class ship but this has been an issue in several other ships I've used.
