The problem isn't that it has a down side. The problem is that the upside is of such short duration that it is not really useful... certainly not useful enoujgh to waste a precious BO skill slot on it for a few seconds of adjusted power. If it was 20s, then you might concievably run two of them to basically nuke your Aux to bring up engine power (since you could use EPtS/EptW to keep up the other two instead.

The Duty Officer provides functionality based on the activation, rather than duration... that turns it into a useful skill again.
