The problem there, again, is that something like that feels more like a galaxy console than something the Nova would have.

Humm, how about something using space gasses? Granted, that was more spectacularly used by Riker in Insurrection, but Ransom was known for hiding in atmo. Perhaps a fly by to dump a gas on a ship that makes it take a lot higher damage until it can clear the debuff? Or conversely degrades accuracy or makes torps/mines blow up prematurely?

Honestly though, at this point I'd buy a T5 Nova even if it had the exact same stats as the Luna and never switch back to anything else.
