Hehe nice RP, love it. Might do some of that myself. I'd not call it terrorizing, I'd call it getting into character.
Well, it is terrorizing. Ya see, I don't always go in on my first run to destroy them. I would say 99% of players probably intend to win right away. I like to draw out the encounter by cloaking after only taking a shot or two ... its fun to toy with them. You can really get some people worked up. My favorite thing is to de-cloak, jam their sensors and not fire a single shot--when they can finally target me, I cloak. Many a brilliant thing has been said to me during these times.
I live for it. This is the way its supposed to be. We're not here in the game to hug one another.
And for bonus, I wonder how many male players hate getting owned by a woman. :p

I'd almost swear someone did this the other day ... a Fed ship in Ker'rat hanging out far away, all by themselves. 50% shields/50% hull. I thought I'd go an pay a visit. By the time I got there and started shooting, health was suddenly at 100% and shields at 90%. Now, that may have been some awesome Engineering Team with a hull repair console and Science Team/Emergency Power to Shields at work, but it was very theatrical. I loved it.
I had to retreat as I couldn't make a dent. I'm no fool; you have to pick your battles.
