The Attack, Escort, Intercept, and Return orders are "better than nothing" targeting. There is so much more that could be done with it - like allowing different orders for each hangar bay (for example, I might want my drones to attack and my BoPs to intercept) - that I remain somewhat frustrated. I find myself saying, in almost every match, "well it's better than nothing". Most of the time, I find myself wondering exactly what the hell my pets are actually up to.

Thanks.

Yeah. EVE Online may be harsh and unfriendly, at least they got their drones layout in order. In STO you have to go to a special menu, deeply hidden somewhere, to even *see* your fighters.

No, just click it once. You will see the command stays highlighted. Fighters already launched, as well as those newly spawned will continue to attack your targets until you issue another command. Unless your target is at a distance greater than 10 Km, then they will do whatever they want.
