I was wondering if there are keyboard shortcuts to execute specific console
actions. I see that each console "kit" has a "A#" in the corner of it.
For example, my tactical console has a High Yield "kit" installed that has "A2"
in the corner. When I want to use it I currently have to use my mouse, which screws up my flying during combat. Does that "A2" correspond with a keystroke or key sequence so I can engage
it without my mouse?

Yeah, that's what it is.

We will see a lot of people new to MMOs and even PC games altogether in STO. Please be patient when they aren't familiar with computer gaming convention we take for granted.

If, however, they also get "they're", "there" and "their" mixed up, feel free to rip them a new one.

Did I sound impatient and unfriendly? I sure hope not

I do not think the commentary was intended for you, rem0te.

Thanks - I too am new to MMOs and wondered about that A2 stuff.

In fact I would not be surprised if most of the people playing STO are new to MMOs.
We are not here because it's an MMO. We are here because it's Star Trek.

Yup, it's alt-# to activate those abilities.

A note on terminology ... Those specific actions are abilities of your Bridge Officers. Kits are items you equip on your captain for ground encounters, and consoles are items you install on your ship for passive bonuses.
