You get these abilities later on, sorry I don't remember what level I got them at. But they will show up on your bar or in your powers list just like Evasive Maneuvers did.

I got ramming speed as a commander and self destruct as a captain.

Self destruct doesn't seem that great a power. I sped into 2 Vo'qua carriers, both with full compliments of fighers and BOPs circling them and detonated at close range. I think I may have taken a fighter with me. Maybe.

You need to do a fair bit of danage to large ships for it to destroy them.

Tried ramming in my escort when i was at 2% health it did 6k damage and killed the ship so it didnt regen which is alrght really lol

I think self destruct is more for cruisers as i hear they do a lot of damage when the use it.

Ramming speed is a great finisher when the enemy is clinging to that last shred of hull health only to see didnt hold.

I believe it depends on the mass of your ship. I constantly try this. I have destroyed BoPs doing a ramming speed/abandon ship combo on my star cruiser. Believe it was mostly the tripple blast from ramming speed, abandon ship, and the warp core breach that did the damage. Warp core breach is a nasty nasty affect.

On my escort I dont seem to do as much damage with that combo. Dont know if anyone else has notice anything about this.

I tend to do the ramming speed/warp core combo. Just make sure your front shields are charged up. I have taken out quite a few ships that way.

It does depend on the speed and size difference.

Release Notes : Feb 12, 2010:
Quote:
Ramming Speed was updated to cap modifiers based on speed of ramming ship. We also improved the damage formula to use the smaller vessel's HP as the base, modified by speed and size ratio between both ships involved. In general, ramming similar or smaller sized ships can be tactically beneficial, ramming larger ships becomes a self-sacrificing last resort.
