Why do we even bother

I've been called a sci spammer before...right after the guy blew up
I run a D'Kyr, and I tend to really tick people off when I grav well, tractor beam, target engines, and then warp plasma them. It's a crowd control build...my purpose isn't to do direct damage, it's to immobilize people and make them useless until one of my escort friends comes by and pops them. I think people get mad because they don't realize that this is what science vessels were made for...a support role. I could equip all heals and be invincible, or I could run my current build, which is absolutely devastating on a team. But I'm not an escort, I can't blast their shields away with 1 hit, and in a 1 vs 1 fight, I'm not going to kill them. Of course...I won't die either
And a note about the mines...with the recent changes to beam fire at will, spam is becoming much less of a problem, and I think eventually the people who like to spam will stop doing it because it won't be as effective any more.
