It just doesn't fit with the game mechanics.
You can't do much damage with torpedoes unless their shields are down, so an AOE attack that hits everywhere is pretty worthless since you'll usually only be able to take down one shield facing on one ship at a time.
I've heard it's useful for hitting a downed shield that isn't facing you but I havn't tried it enough to determine if it really does enough damage to make it worthwhile. That's also fairly situational, so I don't see how it would be better than taking another High Yield or Tactical Team.
