Uhm that sounds more like you are making a point for removing those limits.
Trek is 3D and the corkscrewing drives a lot of people nuts.

Actually the ships should be able to move in the Z-axis, plus and minus. That means up and down without tilting. See "Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan" for how that works, in the Mutara Nebula battle.

I strongly suspect it is all due to engine limitations and if so, it ain't gonna ever happen.

The corkskrew is definately wrong. The last captain in Star Trek with two-dimensional piloting was Khan ("Wrath of Khan") and that didn't work out too well for him. I can understand limiting pitch axis, but it is too overdone in STO and feels very un-Star Trek-like. Split the difference and allow near vertical pitch manuvers or add a Z-Axis.

Or possibly a combination of both where sharp/lprolonged Y-Axis movement triggers + or - Z to be added. Have the rate dependent on turning rates.

I'm OK without full 3d movement, but I would like to see some steeper pitch angles.

What I really REALLY want are 3 new command Keys

1] Pitch Down - takes you automatically to full dive.
2] Pitch Up - takes you automatically to full climb.
3] Level Off - takes you automatically to level flight.

Did I mention I really REALLY want these ? Please?
