It's by design and not lag, and I can see why you find it frustrating but once I learned how it works I improved my style quite a lot.

What you need to know is that each power has an activation time. This is the time from when you click the button to when the power activates. The activation time is very different from power to power, some engage almost instantly while some takes longer. This applies to both space and ground.

What you also need to understand is that you can queue up to two different powers. If I activate boarding party I can click emergency power to shields and as soon as the activation timer is done on BP the EPtS will activate. However, if you hit another power in the meantime, it will replace EPtS in the queue.

Learning how this system works is especially important in ground combat!
