Beam fire at will is useful vs one target or to clear minefields and such, it does not drain weapon power completely unlike beam overload. Target subsystems is another option as well, weapons or shields are probably the best two options.

The shared system cooldown is 20 sec btw, which means that you could use both back to back with a 5 sec pause in between if you trigger the first hy before you enter weapon range (gives you 30 sec to trigger it).
