I have a science ship with 4x beam arrays + missile + chronaton mines. 1 High Yield, 1 Beta dispersal, 1 beam overload.
I target subsytems regularly. I figure that worst case I'm saving myself from a few shots (weapons), doing extra damage (less defense with 0 engines), or hitting the hull a couple of times before the shields come back online. I doubt it's a huge game-changer, but it's a small edge.
Every now and again you get an opportunity to blast them with a bare-hull shockwave too... fun.
