Id like to see ship speed give a dodge chance or something like that, so that if escorts use high speed, as they should really, they actually get an advantage from doing so.

This will mean esocrts will be doing actual strafing runs on the larger ships, and will make pvp combat a little more interesting, rather than all ships sitting there and slow speed and doing the similar things...

At the moment, I have to drop my engines to 1/2 or 1/4 power when I start getting in the 5kms range for optimum sustained dps which is kinda lame. I feel like escorts should play like.. well the Defiant from DS9, right now it just plays like heavy artillery you place into position and blast away till someone targets you.

You use that speed to approach to 2km range to get max DPS from cannons and to fly away. That's enough reason for the speed.

High speed also makes enemies miss you more often.
