So, with the Recent addition of the Riker Maneuver in game. I decided to add more maneuvers. Feel free to add your own :D

The Kirk Maneuver: Bluff your way through a conversation with until you can deal a sucker punch
The Troi Maneuver: Crash your ship by letting a betazoid drive (I am putting this in a Foundry mission as we speak)
The Picard Maneuver: tug on your shirt and quote philosophical sayings about freedom
The Sisko Maneuver: When you are defenseless in the cave with an armed madman, argue with them

Anyone else have one?

    The Antilles Maneuver: Go fast enough in a straight line that the NPCs keep shooting you and chasing you. Reroute all power to the aft shields and fire torpedoes into their (soon to be) disabled forward shields. Does not work on battleships, limited use against frigates and fighters. Developed by Vice Admiral Charles Adam Antilles, Starfleet Corps of Engineers.

    The Lang Maneuver: Race toward the enemy ship at top speed. Once you get within five kilometers, fire a tractor beam. Once you reach the ship, dump warp plasma into their engines and reverse thrust. As they struggle to clear their engines of plasma, switch to Nero Maneuver.

    Designed by Captain Damar Lang of the U.S.S. Resolute. Best used on Cruisers, Escorts, Science Vessels, and Battleships.

    "Critics who say that the optimistic utopia Star Trek depicted is now outmoded forget the cultural context that gave birth to it: Star Trek was not a manifestation of optimism when optimism was easy. Star Trek declared a hope for a future that nobody stuck in the present could believe in. For all our struggles today, we haven’t outgrown the need for stories like Star Trek. We need tales of optimism, of heroes, of courage and goodness now as much as we’ve ever needed them."

    The Cha'cin Maneuver:

    A Bortasqu' cruiser charges in, and just to the left or right at full impulse, until it gets within firing range and goes into a power slide. During the power slide you pop every tactical buff you have, and begin using the Subspace Snare on a foe, when the foe is caught and put in front of you, you activate the Disruptor Autocannon, destroying the foe.

    :D
    I remain empathetic to the concerns of my community, but do me a favor and lay off the god damn name calling and petty remarks. It will get you nowhere.
    I must admit, respect points to Trendy for laying down the law like that.

    the R'Zar Maneuver: fly around at incredible speed incredibly close, in circles, firing everything on autofire, make everyone dizzy, except yourself, and after the enemy is destroyed, get blown up in the explosion.

    had to name that one before someone else did

    The Nexian Maneuver

    Park your starship in the middle of a Borg Unimatrix. Do not shoot the charged plasma bolts. Instead, pop emergency power to shields, aux to structural, brace for impact, and a healthy dose of Shepard's Prayer.

    The pulse goes off; with any luck you live and the splash damage causes the unimatrix to vaporize itself.

    Although, it's safer to simply use a photonic ship, unmanned shuttle/fightercraft, or anything else you can throw at it which will cause the thing to blow up first that isn't you.

    The Abrams Maneuver: Blind them with lens flares so they don't notice that you've never actually watched Star Trek.

    The Pike Maneuver: Boooop boooop.

    The Deferi maneuver - Once the breen destroy the deferi patrol kill the breen. 0 deferi survivors and 0 breen survivors equal and are therefor balanced with the customs of the deferi people. The dead deferi probably wanted balance more then anything anyway.

    The Lazy Corgi Maneuver: Slightly wiggle your ears in a cute way, roll over, and grin wildly while waiting for the belly rub.

    What? Who said it has to be a maneuver from sci-fi!

    Okay. Fine.

    The Ein Maneuver: Grumble about the stupidity of two-legged beings who can't even argue fast enough to allow them enough time to keep your food dish relatively full, then solve all their problems in your own head, fly your ROFLcopter at how silly it all was, and finally promptly forget them and go take a nap.

    A variation of "The Nero Maneuver". It's more a special attack though... and probably more boring than all the previously named attacks.

    The Kusanagi Special Attack Maneuver

    Equipment:
    The Artimage Escort Carrier

    Equipment:
    Cannon Point Defense
    Torpedo Point Defense
    Torpedo Launcher that supports the Spread ability
    Cannons and Turrets

    Bridge Officer Abilities:
    Cannon Scatter Volley
    Torpedo Spread
    Any ability that improves your defense
    Any ability that gives you a speed boost

    1. Launch your fighters. Set them to neutral.
    2. Find a large group of enemies.
    3. Target the enemy furthest from you.
    4. Fly towards the enemy group.
    5. Command your fighters to escort you and activate your defenses.
    5. Right before you go into the enemy group, fire off both point defense systems, Cannon Scatter Volley and Torpedo Spread.
    6. Once all your attacks have been launched, speed away. If you have teammates, they'll appreciate you softening up the opposition...

    I bet all of you have used this at one time or another...
    *sings* "I like Gammera! He's so neat!!! He is full of turtle meat!!!"

    "Hah! You are doomed! You're only armed with that pathetic excuse for a musical instrument!!!" *the Savage Beast moments before Lonnehart the Bard used music to soothe him... then beat him to death with his Fat Lute*

    JJ Trek The Kelvin Timeline is just Trek and it's fully canon... get over it. But I still prefer TAR.

    STF Noob Manuver: Do everything in an STF Wrong (i.e. hit the right side cube first in Infected, sit on top of Kang in Cure, or ignore all probes in Khitomer), blame everyone else for why the optional failed and then Rage quit.

    Do I sound bitter? :p

    I thought the Samantha Carter Manuver was to Blow up a star and then run?
