Anyone have their ships outfitted for this and/or using this effectively?

Sounds like some quaint folk tradition.

Old timer, SFB fan.

Range 7 to 14 (i know - 10 limit) was out of effective range for overloaded photon torpedoes. Disrupters had lower damage, but much higher hit rate. 67% of weapons came to bear on either flank, making long-distance run, gun, and turn an effective tactic. Risk is you turn wrong and the Fed is able to close and pound you.

So basically a streafing run on a flank then turning in for another attack?

Since every torpedo has the same drop for yield / range (ie 0) the Saber Dance is null.

The Good News: Everyone is capable of a Kaufman Retrograde. Science or Cruiser, torpedo and beams in the rear. Not quite as effective as SFB but I still see some returns here.

Nope, not really. This game is more arcade than like SFB or SFC. We were kinda hoping for a game more like SFC2 or OP but what ya gonna do.

Sabre Dance, that takes me back to the day.

No, that isn't possible. I would like to see more SFC/SFB combat rules in STO space combat. Here is to hoping.

I remember SFC, I played that so much, wish we had things a bit more like that here.
