I have a noob question. Right now I am struggling with piloting the ship in combat as my left hand is busy mashing hotkeys for special attacks or buffs while my right hand is holding down the left and right mouse button to turn the ship in the direction I want. Its very cumbersome holding both mouse buttons and I was wondering if there's a better way?
I have a new favorite tactic in my escort:
Pummel with Rapid fire cannons (Mix of Phaser, Phaser-Quad and Heavy-Duty Tetrion)
Hit with a high yield torpedoes
If the target is still standing as you fly past:
Activate Dispersal Pattern Beta
Deploy quantum mines
Hold Target in place with Tractor beam until mines activate and obliterate them
That's my tactic too, except I don't use tractor beams. I just carefully time the release of my quantum mines.
