That's actually the dilemma I'm running into myself. With my Intrepid, I can only use one Lieutenant Space Tactical Ability, so I'm having a hard time choosing between my Tactical officer having High Yield 2 or Torpedo Spread 2. I know that High Yield does more damage to a single ship, but now that Torpedo Spread seems to actually impact the hull of an enemy ship, it seems that having Spread 2 would be more beneficial in the long run than High Yield 2.

But then again, Spread 2 hits up to 6 targets and most of the time, you only need to hit up to 3, unless you're teaming up against someone else. So then perhaps I should go with High Yield 2 and have Spread 1.
