Tykens rift is awesome, it drains multiple targets' power levels at once. While it is useful for lowering damage and agility, the main thing you want it for is because shields drop when shield power is drained. Good timing with HYT and target shields subsystems can let you sneak some extra hull damage in. later on, you might want to upgrade to tykens rift II when you get a new ship.
Tachyon beam is also good with enough skills; remember the drain listed is per facing, per pulse and there are 10 pulses, so you are doing 40 times the shield depletion it lists.
Also note that both are based off current aux level, so run that power high to get the most out of your abilites.
