Attack Pattern Alpha

Attack Pattern Alpha is a Tactical captain skill. It increases the damage, critical chance and critical severity of your starship's weapons, as well as the turn rate of your starship. While its description states that it increases "all damage strength", this language actually means that it increases the base damage of your weapons.



Attack Pattern Alpha does not modify damage attributable to weapon skill training, weapon mark, or tactical consoles. As a result, the actual damage increase it provides is a great deal smaller than what one might expect based off of the description. For example, at Vice Admiral, Attack Pattern Alpha 3 will actually add something in the range of 15-18% damage strength, depending on your skill training, weapon mark, and how many tactical consoles you have equipped.
STO Wiki has a lot of good info.
