the miranda is a bloody deathtrap, it is THE ship that filmers and designers go to when they need to blow things up. Wrath of Khan, wofl 359, 90% of the ds9 battles, first borg invasion... you name it, they blew a miranda up in it. Hell, Admiral Quinn isn't saying "We need you!", he's saying "heres a flying coffin, go kill yourself".
and based on the average ability of t1 pvpers (both sides), I'd say that thats not a misleading order. /rant
really though, at those levels, one or two people can really drag the team to a victory, even if they're kicking and screaming the entire time.
i honestly feel if i could get a grp of 4 players in a miranda each with engi heal and the balls to use it i would not lose another cracked planet to the klingons, i have seen so many matches where i have healed for 12k+ and have been the only one on either team to have done so. epts will not save you in t1 vs focus fire, almost 10k in heals from your team mates probably will, throw in a sci team o to to remove js and you're away. 1v1 is not a problem, well it was a bit tougher at lvl 6 vs highter lvl players but once you get the lvl 8 captain special to even the odds then not really.
Even in cp i see feds impulse of to the horizon, what they expect to find i have not idea, i have managed to get a few not to just sit stationary giving away crit bonuses and hit chance, however even that can be like pulling teeth. Even at t1 it is a case of if the feds took a balanced build that can help support both themselves and thier team mates winning and losing at that level wouldn't be nearly as bad as some have made it out to be. my god you can stay alive for a while just spamming redistribute shields at this lvl, a button way to many players seem unaware of.

I'll go with that statement plus some more.
WHen He says spam "Distribute shield power" it serious. That is the number one skill that is NOT used enough. I have met too many people that don't evenknow its a skill they would rather just hit arrow keys for the shield facing that is going down. I can promise you DSP is better.
As far as building with a balance that helps a team.....Seriously feds and klingons alike......get into a team. Ask if that team is willing to stay together for a few matches at least. Hell if you have an hour or more perfect. Get into your match and finish it ASAP. then take that team to Sol Earth Dock and respec your BO skills to compliment each other out the best you can. What is 10 minutes of building right as compared to hating the next 6 matches cuz of dumb PUG tems that don't heal each other at all.
Everyone on the team should have some skills that help each other out. If a cruiser stacks 2-4 RSP he is dumb as a box of rocks. Get the heals and support skills, nothing wrong with 1 RSP but more than 1 in a 5v5 map is just "doing it wrong". The science should be there and buffing debuffing and support.....not PEWPEWing. I average 30-50k a match in my DSSV because I know my role (Lots more some matches if the mines are on target). Escorts even need some skills to help others out. I know its hard to get out of the Tunnel vision once your mashing spacebar but seriously look at your team and hal others if they need it. You don't NEED VOIP software if you can make a macro that you spam when you change targets to focus fire on. Small simple things like these can be the difference between winning a match and not losing.
Please feds and klingons get organized. I am bored as hell in most matches due ot lack of real teamwork.
