Your Problem right there, the only people playing sto as intended are Tac/Escort pilots. Try a eng/sci ship combo and see how much you kill stuff and finish objectives with those aux based powers. STO, has too much focus on burst damage as it is, by removing resists and heals, while leaving weapons as is will only make things worse.

This, actually it would hurt sci ships most. I'd say.

Use your torpedoes if you are bothered by energy drain on weapons, or mines. But try to do anything in STO without your Energy Weapons, and full AUX power awesomness.... Good luck
