It's done in the game itself, you can type into chat:

/bind spacebar "GenSendMessage HUD_Root FirePhasers $$ +power_exec Distribute_Shields"

That makes the spacebar fire all energy weapons and distribute your shields at the same time.

For keybinds too long to type into chat you can creat a text file in your star trek online/live folder which you can load from in game to have a keybind like:

Space "+Power_Exec Distribute_Shields $$ GenSendMessage HUD_Root FirePhasers $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 9 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 8 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 7 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 6 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 5 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 4 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 3 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 2 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 1 $$ +TrayExecByTray 3 0"

That's an extreme example that would make every power in the 4th row of your tray bound to spacebar.

And it's all supported by the game itself, no fancy keyboards needed.

In space I run autofire on all beams, I prefer to fire torpedoes manually through mouse clicks.

Since ground is less responsive I hit 1 or 2 to use weapons/hypos ect.

Why don't you just leave them on, and then press ESC when you want to stop attacking? A million times easier.

Autofire for all energy weapons, manual firing of kinetic weapons.

To stop firing all you have to do is double click your mouse on empty space or hit esc key.

This maximizes your damage output making sure you don't have a delay between weapon recharge and firing it.

First, I click the power button, from settings 0-16. Then, I click a button, or pull a trigger, in the case of rifles.

In space i use auto fire for energy weapons, not torpedo launchers! For some reason i can't see the fun in using those fancy keybinds that trigger weapons, shields and what not pffft!

On the ground i use manual aiming...shooter mode!

I put my ship's phasers on autofire, and manually line up torpedo shots when the target's shields collapse.

Game features I'd like to see improved / expanded: Better Ship Interiors // BOff Costume Slots

What I do is very different from what everyone else does, and would not be recommended by anyone else. However, I feel comfortable with this arrangement:

WASD ship controls

1: CRF, TS, CSV, THY

2: Fire Torps

3: all my tac buffs besides APA

Space: fire energy weapons, 2 Tac Teams

Numpad: each one does something, usually defense buffs and shield/hull heals.

X: Gravaton Field emitter? (the thing that slows/disables ships

C: Aux Battery (for my aux abilities)

I find mouse controls confusing, so I stray away from that (even though everyone else uses that).
