No discussion of melee? That's a shame.

Yes, no punching mentioning is a shame.

Melee attacks with your phasers do a few very important things.
1. Knocks down the target, duh, obvious as the tutorial teaches you this.
2. Bypasses shields, sometimes health will be super low and their shields will regen, this can be good for this.
3. 10% expose chance. Sometimes its worth it to kick(rifle butt) someone while they are down, just for the increase expose chance.

Also worth mentioning,
You can stack your away team with cone-exposes, and they will often expose for you, and you can strategically use your exploits on your weapons.

The most powerful tactical power I found was focus fire.
But the way its set up, having to spam it every 10 seconds...grrr.
They should make that a toggle ability.

Kiting works wonders in STO. Borg especially hate kiting. Yes, crouch and aim gives you a damage boost, but especially in STFs, when you have a zillion borg zerging and assimilating you, keeping range will save your butt.
