the problem with that power, is Transphasic would become even more worthless.

I think it really lies in the ratio of damage to shields, as it presently stands when you fire a torp at a shield you might as well have not even fired the weapon, even on a high yield 3 quantum (The torp which is about the -only- time hy3 is worth anything on in terms of damage to a shield.... and even then it only minorly damages the shield, vs say one of my scatter volley bursts)

It is worth thinking about though, as it stands beam overload is pretty much the most efficient hull melter because of the naughty things it does to both shields and hull in one strike.
