The Thunder-child turret is a Phaser Turret that is useable, but with a 3 minute cool-down. It shoots at everything within its range and can dish out some decent DPS against smaller vessels.

In my opinion, neither one of these turrets are overpowered or overall extremely useful. I have found that the Automated Defense Turret from the Deluxe Edition has saved my butt a good many times against Romulan High Yield Plasma Torpedo’s during PVE. Otherwise, it is not worth taking up a tactical console other than having a bit of fun.
