This is a great place to start with keybinds (copypasta into the chat window):
/bind Space "GenSendMessage HUD_Root FirePhasers$$+power_exec Distribute_Shields"

I only use one; space bar for fire all weapons and distribute shields.

"c" has both copies of EptS
"space" has fire all energy, and redistribute shields.
"shift + 1,2,3,4" are my energy presets, i switch often, (maybe not often enough)
"x" depends on the ship and is mostly for TAc BOs. I move stuff in and out of the trays that it activates depending on mood, I often have onlhy on skill sloted, but sometimes move another one up there if i have two copies of an offensive skill, like sci-ship subsystems abilities, or BF@W ...

Most of that is stuff readily available through the Key Bind section of the UI. I was expecting people to be doing something dirty...

They absolutely are not. I've never used keybinds and I manage pretty darn well in PVP.

Words can not express how much I love the fact that you have Regina George flying the USS Burn Book.

Well Tick0, if you are so good in PVP do me a favor, don't try the keybinds!

I prefer not to use them either, then again I will not own an automatic transmission either. I don't like to put anything on automatic, spoils the fun for me. However, I do know it puts me at a disadvantage vs a guy who auto distributes shields, runs 2 copies of EPtS auto cycled, etc. I just hate to use 2 copies of any skill, regardless of the advantages, it gets boring to me (the build gets boring, not the game). Although some simple keybinds that just allow me to use a key instead of a mouse click would be wise, I have just been too lazy to set that up yet.

Have fun, kill Cap Horizon, lol. :-)
