hey, as anyone seen that episode of TNG where it shows you Captain Pickard under attack, it looked like it was all over for him until he did 2 mini bursts of warp only km apart from each other, which inturn left 2 echos of his ship in place? well, even if you havent ive just explained what im on about lol, but anyway, would it be possable to recreate this tactick for bc? mabie using or created around MVAM, the ships would need to some how disappear after a set time, not move or fire, and would need to be like a ghost so, the enemy can target them but there weapons would just go right through them. it would be fun to do, and would give you enough time to get your ass to Starbase 12 for repairs lol

It was the stargazer.

It could work, Im thinking of something like useing like launch probe or abandon ship scripts, but you would be probe but the probe would be changed to your ship. If you fire a probe it takes a few seconds to get on your tactical to select and you will notice it always a few KM away from your ship, but during this time as the probe (ship) you could fire and somehow make the other ship you were on disappear. So you would have to some how adapt that you would beam to the probe (new ship) and make the other ship disappear after a few seconds later.

. Yes, it was I, Captain Jean-Luc Picard who devised the Picard Maneuver at the battle of Maxia in a last ditch effort to destroy the Ferengi. While the tactic may have worked well on TV, lets think about how it might work in a computer sim First, you would probably experience a computer slowdown if the tactic was used with MVAM scripting or probe launching Second, the intercept mod and warp intercept mod already provide a means of intercepting enemy targets from great distances Lastly, the maneuver would probably put you too close to the enemy to get off an accurate torpedo launch. You may only have time for a full phaser attack If this mod were to be created it would probably be more of a "fun factor" mod

1stly, SORRY AGAIN FOR POOR SPELLING! I think the mods will prolly find it amusing and not let me edit it

If this mod were to be created it would probably be more of a "fun factor" mod

tell me if im wrong but, what are games made for? and plus i wasnt thinking of using it to do the whole sequence, just the actual warp bit, unless you could script into the mod an auto aim at selected target and fire so it does it all in one big go?
