Canon. In STO.
What.


Neither are tactical fleet, engineering fleet, science fleet and maaaaaany other powers.... and ships... and weapons...

so please, lead that strawman of yours out of the building, behind a shed and shoot it because its not looking good anymore and it stinks.




Know whats also not cannon?

Just about every klingon cruiser is way to agile if compared to their tng and s9 depictions.
Escorts having a turn circles of less than the diameter of the galaxy class saucer also does not seem to be canon, especially not on friggin huge boats like the escorts sto has.

so please spare me the canon argument, that went outa the game years ago - when they made it so that a direct hit from one of starfleets biggest phaser arrays does nothing more than mildly amuse people.

Canon has no part in sto.

Well just watch TNG. Quite a few times the Enterprise does a spin and then flys away. I dont like how PWE/Cryptic has made cruisers in this game, in the shows and movies they could zip around all over the place. Escorts were even faster. I just want the game to be like the shows.. But that will never happen...

I like the idea of HET like in Starfleet Command. I also like that there could be a consequence

of the maneuver possibly failing in similar fashion to SFC .

There are some very recent changes on TRIBBLE to the Emergency Power to X abilities.
Emergency Power to Engines now has a duration of 20 seconds and also gives a bonus to turnrate.
So it seems thigs are changing in this department.

Solved.
apo is an ltcom tac slot at the earliest.

Most cruisers do not have those.

Stop making comments about ships you apparently do not use, have ever used or even know what their problems are. thx.

On this note, this is where the Dread actually performs best of all of the "whales".

Fleet Manuver Gamma
Evasive Maneuivers
Attack Pattern Omega

You can consistantly move and operate reliably in a similar manner to an escort. At regular intervals. Only two that share a cool down is the FMG and APO. Of which, just watch your timing and your target.

But what you really need on your ship overall,

are VR MK 12 RCS, and a VR MK 12 high turning engine. (think Enterprise in Temporal Ambassador Mission) You can make a Bortas turn very well with that combo. But it'll run you around 20 mil

Blah, blah, blah.
I've been using the maneuver since SFB was released in '82, and since ADB coined the term and developed the mechanics I don't think CBS or cryptic has any claim, or right to copy the maneuver for this game since it was never used in the show.

...But since your such a hot-shot know it all space lawyer maybe you can tell us all if they can.
