Yeah, that's all there has ever been: circle, fire weapons, repeat.   

The Romulan content is a nice addition but the game's mechanics are still bland and relatively boring (IMHO).

depends entirely on your ships load out.

I know several people that do strafeing runs with cannons and mines,

the load you are thinking is the beam boats and at time you will corkscrew, at other not so much.

of course then agina in most MMOs you simply stand still and shot or hop left and right.

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to
Proper Grammer & spelling are extra, corrections will be LOL at.

Last time I played the Ship to Ship combat was horrible.  They need to overhaul that system.

All it takes for evil to succeed is for the good to stand by and do nothing

Unless you use an escort, in which case rather than going round and round you go back and forth.

Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.
Oh, I see it's too late to help you.

They can't.  An unfortunate choice of game design and engine. They used a modified version of CoX and basically took CO and slapped new graphics on it. It's the biggest problem with the game. Overhaul the way it needs to be, will never happen. What you see is the way it is and will be. IMO SFC III had better combat.

That is also what i dont like about the game. The movement in space is so strange. Its a shame really as im a huge star trek fan.
