I'd rather have a power that is something I can use all the time instead of just once in a while.
I really think there should be a buff to torpedoes while the ablative shield is up, making it more viable to use. In Voyager, a volley of three transphasic torps while the ablative shielding was up blew up a borg cube. I'm not saying make it that powerful, but a torp damage buff would be in line with cannon and make this power far more useful. At least that would make it worth a 3 min timer.
Well the transphasics themselves need some adjusting, they are suppose to be able to pwn borg but quantums still hit harder then them, well when hitting the hull.
