Interesting...It would be interesting if you went into power levels in more detail in future videos.

No offense to Cryptic or anyone else, but i fiqured out the flanking bonus and the "expose and exploit" things on my very first ground fight. I mastered them within an hour. What I would like to know are any tips and tricks on space combat (don't get me wrong, it is epic), so i can minimize the damage inflicted during the bigger fights (2-on-1 or worse). That would help a lot.

Yeah, that guys voice may be good for the Guardian, but it's not good for narration. I feel like I'm sitting in Ben Stein's class in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Thanks for the videos though.

Post-Beta, I would also like to see more Space-based videos based on combat, the different types of ships and captains, how different combinations of ships and captain type might work, how Personal and Bridge Officer abilities might make up a "build," effective group Space tactics, and how changing the Power Allocation presets might be beneficial with more Ranks in Warp Core Engineering and similar skills.

While people are asking about tips for space combat (which would be cool), I think this video was needed. There was a certain game review that said BOs "run around like idiots". Plenty of STO players agreed with that statement where I did not.

Upon pointing out strategies for BO placement, flanking, expose & exploit players said they never used them and got to RA5 by only pressing the 1 and 2 keys. So this video was needed for education if anything. Good work.

# 7 Just what I needed.

I certainly appreciated it. While I have known and used the expose/exploit attacks, I never knew that by hitting G I could automatically target an exposed enemy. Thanks, Cryptic!

Speak for yourself. The Guardian's voice has so far been one of the biggest letdowns for me.
