PSW can give a 4 second stun, that is pretty huge and you don't have to face a target to hit them with it. Also, it isn't affected by AUX power so you can be 100% to weapons and still use it to full effect.
I am loving TBR lately. Let me give you a rundown of why.
I get to about 2k from my target, headed straight at them. I pop Aux battery, TBR and Evasive. In that order, fast as possible.
The evasive keeps me pushing toward them, the AUX boosts my power to 125 so I get max effect from it. TBR isn't affected by shields, so all the damage goes to the hull.
I have killed ships at 100% hull this way. I did it to a Defiant the other day and he wasn't pleased. The only protection I found from it is Polarize Hull.
Few people realize how hard TBR hits and full AUX until they get hit by it.
Right now I'd lean toward TBR being my favorite Com Sci Skill. But PSW is a good one too.
I never thought to use the skill like that; I'll have to give it a try
