they will, no doubt, they will

1. Click the little computer icon next to your minimap.

3. Go to something else for a while, because you're clearly playing too much STO.

Checking back to this old thread for an update. The recap is I suffered a repetitive stress injury and could not play with both hands. I implemented some ideas to play a bit while my forearm is healing; some of the ideas came from good posters on this thread.

I bought a mouse with more than two buttons.
I bought a keyboard (Logitech G19) that allowed a user to record keystrokes with delays and bind them to a key.

It has reduced the frantic keyboard bashing by at least 60% for me, and I am able to play one handed. The mouse has two thumb buttons , and they let me map two clicks at once to each. Obviously helpful in ground (fire1,fire2, kit ability , kit ability) and space (fire all, bo ability, ect). I was managing ok with just the help from the mouse, pvp was too intense but it was fine for pve. Once I got the keyboard figured out (some creativity required getting how you want your G keys to work for each character) I can safely say once my brace comes off I will not be in danger of another injury. My wife is an all day computer user , and I set up the same setup for her too, to head off any problems in advance.

The solutions seem amenable to other games, mmporg and solo. Special thanks to Billy.Mays and Blackavaar.
