I like it when they're flashing green with no shields because they're too stupid to know that hazard emitters clear the borg shield neutralisers.

Cowards take hostages. Klingons do not.

The game has changed so much in the last year and there is no balance anymore so go ahead and yuk it up 19 klinks shooting a poor Fed.
The voice of truth! Bravo!
I would also add the KDF vessels can mount DHC...
The problem is our Cruisers suck and I see too many brave but ingenuous Fed Tac Captains fight in vain with all their might to improve their weak DPS.
We all want to be Kirk and this damned game make it impossible!

I actually dont find this to be very Honest at all. Very prejudiced though.
STO is very much an Adam One culture and completely inarticulate about Adam Two.

1. Except the KDF has no true Science ship that doesn't require Zen. And our Carriers and the Bortasqu suck at turning as much as Fed cruisers.

Also, the Battle Cloak is not an OP device. In fact, cloaking while under fire is extremely dangerous. Also, there are many ways to disable the cloak.

2. What button are you talking about?

3. Plasmonic Leech- Not OP, in fact it is resisted by Power Insulators and the drain can be easily countered
Aceton Assimilator- Shoot it with torpedoes, end of Aceton Assimilators.

Other equipment is rarely seen or used. I prefer a Nadeon Detonator over a Bio Neural Warhead

It is a poor warrior that relies on these equipment instead of his own skills.
4. All Science abilities were nerfed to near uselessness.

5. Not every BOP carries an Engineering Team.

Two of my most memorable space battles were in Kerrat, and even though I mainly play the red side these battles happened on those rare times I played my Fed toon. These battles weren't memorable because I won or got more kills, I got my tail kicked in both of them, but for the fun I had fighting them.

1st Battle - I was in a Cruiser and my teammate had a Sci vessel. We were matched against 3 BoP's. The BoP's would swoop in decloak tear up our shields then be gone before we even knew what happened. We would fight them off time and again, if one of us went down the other quickly followed. Sometimes we would kill one or two of them and drive the others away sometimes we would be space debris. It was a hell of a lot of fun and I enjoyed watching the skills of those BoP pilots.

2nd Battle - I was in an escort by myself and matched against 2 BoP's, it was one of those times in Kerrat when there weren't hardly anyone there. I flew around never knowing where they were at and from what direction they would come from, it gave it a horror movie quality with the same jumpiness involved when they would decloak and shred me. Every once in awhile I would catch one but most of the time I spent respawning which like true warriros they allowed me to do without dishonoring themselves by spawn killing. I believe this is the most fun I ever had in Kerrat and I lost badly.

To those who whine about Kerrat, its not always about winning but the fun of the battle.

The funniest part about this is he expects us to believe he actually saw 19 Klingons anywhere. Visit Kerrat almost any time of day and you're likely to see at least half a dozen Federation ships, not Klingon ships, parked at the spawn point. But if you insist on firing upon me at the respawn point, I'll insist on ramming your AFK buddies and killing them with a warp core breach. So go ahead and help me send your friends to Grethor.
All cloaks should be canon.

Problem as I see it is the game sends low-level players there for the missions, and then they get attacked by groups of fleet-equpped KDF gank squads who only come out when the fed player is trying to get away from a squad of borg ships. Certainly some problems with the player base there, newbs shouldnt go there, and fleet-level sociopaths shouldn't camp the newbs. Ultimately its a poor design though, sending low-levels into the maw of misfits with top-line gear is really bad design.

I agree Kerrat needs to be for lvl 50's only. But it isnt only the KDF who does the sort of thing youre talking about. I recall several times playing my Klink at the Capt lvl and being spawned killed over and over by Fed admirals camped at the respawn point. Make sure you use both hands when pointing fingers so you can include both factions.
