It would be nice to have something like what they tried in The Best of Both Worlds: Fire a giant, super powerful phaser beam from the deflector dish. Like most deflector dish abilities, it would have a 90 degree firing arc, and be based off your axillary power level, and be a straight up damage ability.

so you could drop you shields for say 4 seconds completely and when they come back online you get max shields with high regen and damage resistance for say 15seconds?

Sort of like the Ablative Armour, only for shields. would give you a chance to plow through an enemy group and out the other side to draw their attn.
This is something I've always thought would be nice to have. High risk, but if it replenishes your shield entirely or almost entirely, the reward is also extremely high.
