I could live with SNB just removing buffs. But the buff removal needs to stay as long as buffs are as strong as they are. And once they aren't, SNB will not feel that powerful either.

Charged Particle Burst is also only powerful because all other buffs are so strong. You can boost your damage up to the wazoo, hence you need to buff your resistance up the wazoo as well. Hence a power ignoring shield resistance is awesome.

In a way, Science is what even allows a semblance of balance currently, otherwise it would just be indestructable ships against infinite damage. And we would probably learn the answer to an age-old question, but while it might be interesting from a philosophical persective, it doesn't make good gameplay.
