I can't seem to find a way to cut power to weapons and shields as a sign of good faith to new races etc.. Maybe that's why they all attack me and I have to atomize them? All they see is a ship with powered shields and weapons, what are they supposed to think?
I suppose I could unequip my shields and weapons, however if it's decided to attack me I can no longer "Raise shields" or "power up weapons" since once in combat I can't do anything with equipment.

Not very "Star Trek" if you don't have to "Raise shields". Just fly around with them on all the time.

Makes sense they'd keep them up, though, while in a war with the Klingons. Shieldless Federation ships would be easy pickings for cloaked attackers.

Nothing responds well to diplomacy in this game. Blast 'em all.

Even in the series they would give the benefit of the doubt. Granted, usually to their own detriment... still.

That's what being a Starfleet officer is really about. To remain unafraid and offer diplomacy even to an enemy.

Would be nice to be able to decide your own alert level and suffer the consequences accordingly.
