Yeah i have had similar issues. They occurred during beta, but are back with vengeance. The ships ram into the asteroids if u dodge behind one, and they become stuck and unable to be hit until they reverse out of it. Also noted is they get line of sight first, even if you are dead even with them.
Also on the chunks of space, they are really cool phenomena. But i think they are used a bit to heavily.
This is one thing that i like Eve over more than STO. Space in STO is still just to Small. planet maps take a while to navigate which is realistic, but sometimes less IS more.
And Slow the game down but give us pretties to look out while traveling. All the blue and black (red and black if your a klink) is really old. I mean players from the early start are almost commanders now. Granted i've not explored beyond the standard areas yet but we kinda miss out on the whole stars wizzing by the windows that made star trek's warp so different from hyperspace.
