BTW, your BOffs:

LT Engineering: EPtW 1, EPtS 2

Whats the point having 2 skills twice? If I remember correctly, having 2x EPtS2 didn't work because it acts as one skill with shared recharge timer. That's why I don't have 2x EPtS but Reverse Shield Polarity instead.
The Emergency power to X abilities are unique in that you can chain 4 together for 100% uptime, this enables me to have near max power in both weapons and shields all the time.

The way this works is this. Each power runs for 30 seconds, with a 45 second cooldown. However they only have a 15 second global cooldown, with a 30 second shared cooldown with it's copy.

The sequence goes like this. Activate eptw wait 15 seconds activate epts wait 15 seconds activate your other eptw, wait 15 seconds then activate your other epts. 15 seconds later your first eptw is ready to go again. ^__^
