Been a while since I tried this, but there's something else to keep in mind...

Global Cooldowns.

This is when all BOff powers on a certain subsystem get a (usually) 15 second cooldown upon activation of a power in that class.

For example, activating Beam Fire at Will puts all beam-weapon skills on a 15 second cooldown - all my "target subystems" skills from being a science ship get hit with a 15 second cooldown, and my deflector system skills (energy syphon and Gravity well) do the same thing.

Now, it should be possible to activate a high yield, which gives you a 30 second firing window, then 15 seconds later activate torp spread, and fire off a spread of HY torps within that 15 second window.
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
