Warp Straffing

I'm hoping the new film will show like TOS did that the Enterprise could fire phasers accurately whilst at warp. The original Enterprise was awesome!

I'm pretty phasers were used at warp in both Ds9 and Voyager. *shrugs*

They fire torpedoes in warp often enough in the series.

The games are all over the place- continuity nightmare.

Frankly the shows are a continuity nightmare as well. Mostly minor things but some of them really annoyed me.

He's right. Torpedoes and phasers/disruptors have both been employed at warp in both the movies (ST:Nemesis, for example) and TNG-Voy. The Prometheus used weapons at warp and Voyager did the same against the Kazon. There are other instances, though these are the immediate examples that came to mind.

That was fairly common during the original Star Trek. "The Ultimate Computer", "Balance of Terror" and "Elaan of Troyius", and ST:TMP all contain instances of FTL ships using weapons against sublight ships.

Yes, and we have not seen it at all since the original series. I am convinced this would give the Federation the edge of the Star Wars Galactic empire.

It is an edge, no doubt, but do you think it is a definitive one?

In every instance of Warp Strafing in the original series, it was only done because the target ship was inhibited or unable to go to warp. I suppose that Warp Strafing wouldn't make much tactical difference against ships that can go FTL at a whim (which would be almost all the TNG ships onward). That might explain why we don't see it in the later series. It does not explain why the Klingons and the Dominion failed to use this technique against Ds9. Perhaps they would have been unable to deliver the bombardment necessary to penetrate the stations shields using only strafing techniques? We have only speculation.

A combination of warp and temporal torpedoes should do the trick.

They may have much faster FTl than Trek but, they do not fight at multiples of C and have no time tech.

But we have no evidence teh turbolasers can hit a ftl object. I remember getting banned from a forum for saying that.
