IIRC Security Escort is on a 2 minute timer, I could be wrong, I use Tact Initiative to drop to 45 seconds often. <--- which Engineers can't do for support drone

You can also have 3 Security Officers doffs active

Engineering summon doffs are gated to only being able to slot one.

Security Escort is a class power, not a kit power, which is why the cooldowns are different. Security Escorts are also mobile while Turrets and Mortars are not....

If Turrets/Mortars were put on a 3 minute cool down.. nobody would use the kit..

I'll add one more thing to the debate, its so much easier to get 3 purple Security Doffs. Rather than earn one purple Fabrication Specialist, one purple Armory Officer (DS9 Bundle excluding since it cost C-Points) and one Explosive Expert. The Explosive Expert which is not sold in either Academy Stores.
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.
