    They do when someone like JTK gets a hold of one and decides it a good idea.

    Ship-to-ship phaser shots have been deomstrated to be quite effective, even when both ships are moving FTL -- the Fed ships have the fire control necessary to keep the weapon on target long enough to do damage.
    If they didn't they'd be useless.

    If the Imperial ships cannot shoot at Federation ships moving FTL, the Fed ships dont need to power their shields.

    The Empire shields still block transporters, and as far as we know, they're as strong as Fed shields. In which case, it comes down to a matter of time until the Empire wins, don't forget that Fed ships cannot stay at warp indefinitely.

    There's no evidence that the shields in SW can block transporters since transporter tech doesn't not exist in SW. We have no idea about strength either.

    Well, that being the case, the Feds just need to drop the Imperial shields w/ weapons fire.

    don't forget that Fed ships cannot stay at warp indefinitely.
    True... but they CAN remain at high warp for at LEAST weeks on end - more than enough time to decide a tactical engagement.
