Using Photonic Officer after an ability will reduce the ability's CD, but it won't be the full reduction, more like a reduction on the current remaining CD. This does make Photonic more useful as it can then be used as a reactive ability when everything goes to heck
On the other note, generic Kinetic tactical consoles buffs Grav Well and Photonic Shockwave? Now that's an interesting tibbit which I need to follow up on my LRSV-R to see if it is feasible to have an effective sci-based ship rather than a 'Sci-scort' like my RSV.
