If you shoot me, I shoot back tends to be the rule.
The only true spawn campers are those players that stay at spawn after they ahve wiped the oppossing faction players out and continue to shott them as they re-spawn back in.
I've seen plenty of CFs on zone respawn that where intense and then all involved finally moved away to do thier own thing.

This.

In arenas, "spawn-camping" tends to happen most when one team doesn't leave or get very far from their spawn. This can and often does lead to that team respawning as their team is still in combat. The proper solution to this is to stop respawning until your team is dead, then wait for the other team to move off (they probably will, most players aren't jerks). If you don't, it leads to a perpetual situation where 1 team constantly has players respawning into combat.

The best thing you can do to prevent this is to use full impulse as soon as it is available and put 30 or 40km between you and the spawn... bare minimum.

Ok, so update:

First off thanks for all the help, not only did I help myself out with all your information, but was able to set up my friends as well. Second, the new set up is absolutely amazing, I have not been shot down in PVP since, and I often lead my team in points healing my allies and dealing steady and constant damage that often lets a fleet escort snag a choice kill.

One thing I should add is that I do respectfully disagree with some of the one shot comments I've seen here, the Aegis system works incredibly well on the cruiser, the defense bonus provided by the matched set + the very high flow capacitor ability has let me survive things I rightfully shouldn't. When I had the Borg set, it was much more difficult, and found myself switching back to Aegis.

Thank you again for all your help, see you on the battlefield.

A little tip I'll add if you do hazard the FVK queues seriously. Roll a klingon character. I'm serious, there's a very good quote attributed to many people both IRL and in Trek that to know your enemy is often more important than knowing yourself.

You can't honestly expect to kill someone if you don't know how their ship works. On this note, I also suggest playing at least one character of every profession to get a feel for their abilities and what they do, and when they are useful. Even if they're not your cup of tea as a main character, to PVP well requires a broad and holistic view of the game's options.

I get this alot, but I find it impossible to believe every federation character thinks the KDF is overpowered and yet none of them have changed factions to take advantage of that 'imbalance'. There's no way humanity is that altruistic.

However, if what you say is true, then I'll respect that. Kudos for actually trying it.

Yes you have, you've met me (well in game at least). When I'm playing Korak, I try to play as an honourable Klingon, so if I end up at the enemy re-spawn point in an arena, I do not attack those respawning until they make a hostile movement (which includes going to full impulse in my book). I've even sat out half a match cloaked because my fellow Klingons would not let the opposition reform at their spawn before obliterating them (and apologised to the opposing team). Of course, I'm no saint, I said I try to play honourably but I'll admit occasionally blood lust kicks in and I engage any enemy ship on sight but its the thought that counts, right?

Ker'rat may well be a different kettle of fish but then that is a war zone, so all bets are off...

Ok, your right. I should have said with very few exceptions I've met few who do not attack on Respawn.
My apoligies for teh slight to your honor.
