Slight update to the Weapon Subsystem section. Upon being prompted by some questions, it turn out that enhancer Power Transfer Rate via EPS Flow Regulator Engineering Consoles or via the Starship Electro-Plasma Systems captain skills does have a
effect on weapon power during combat. The effect is slight due to weapons power being drain and restored so rapidly while weapons are firing. Even with PTR rates in the upper hundreds, it's effect was minimal. The net result was my weapon power not being totally bottomed out by 5 power units wih a large number of energy weapons firing.
So I don't advice going all out to enhancer your Power Transfer rate. It's just not worth it. Enhance your Power Transfer Rate because you want your power allocation changes to happen faster.
