just a thought, but would it work if we had total 360 degrees of flight space? such as flyin 'upside' down, doing forward/back flips, ect ect. in this way, you could open up a whole new set of tactics that could be used. granted, its not very helpful for cruisers, and may only be of any benefit to escort players, but it just seems it would open things up some more.
The reason we don't have 360 degree flight is upside-down starships are not canon. I do think Crypric could let our inclinations go a bit steeper though.
That's not entirely true... I seem to recall the Enterprise E performed a 180-degree roll, ending 'upside down' relative to her approach when she carried out a point-blank attack run on the Son'a command ship in Insurrection.
