Spoiler Alert:
Best solution: No friendly fire at all. There was a time the systems team seemed to think that using a power should not come with drawbacks, which lead to the famous Beam Fire At Will balance changes. The rationale for the changes apparantly was: BFAW should not lower the DPS against your primary target when there is more than one target around. Why now suddenly change around and say that some abilities - mines, torpedoes - come with drawbacks, and hefty ones like damaging yourself or allies?
