The goofy AI behaviour, combined with the relatively low healing from the ability, meant I retrained that Officer after a few away missions. It's an interesting idea, to give Engineers a bit of AE healing. However, as the skill currently works, it is not at all usefull.
They do this will shield generators too. Just randomly drop them any old place, whether it's a good tacticcal decision or not. So long as the cooldown is over, they drop it.
