They weren't even particularly good ones, Mk XI greens I think. Will look into fully upgrading.

Also, for the record, I H8 my science ship. I never want to play it again.
Try the Recon with it's bugged turn rate. It's ... fun.

17 (12.6 on the Cruiser IIRC) with a rare Hyperimpulse MK X [Spd x2] (assuming they have the same speedmod as a Escort/Raptor - I dont fly Birds)

So here is what I do to try and catch "runners":

Evasive Maneuvers, Engine Battery, Full Engine Qbind, Aux to Dampeners (on cruiser only)... yet they still pull away.

I'm leveling up a BoP myself and I've never once managed to 'flee' a fight without getting run down by the Feds. I seem to never get to the point where I can hit full impulse and stealth as a long trail of torpedoes continue to hit me 15 seconds later.

Am I missing an ability here? I must be doing something wrong.
Cloaking under firer is not as easy as FEDs think it is you must save some hull resist for the cloak and a brace for impact trust me you donít want to take 4-5 torp with no shield in a ship with 29K hull.
