To yourself a threat buff, maybe to others a threat debuff? (along with current benefits)
Whoah, now we're talking about threat control as an actual game mechanic that can be used tactically.
I agree, the concept put into that light does seem very appealing.
Allowing a ship, to simultaneously draw threat, reduce an ally's threat and increase that target's survivability seems like a very interesting mechanic.
I'm not sure how often it would actually be used because using a power with +500% threat generation on yourself might simply be enough to grab the attention of an NPC in most situations.
That being said more options are better, imo.
