I guess that, rather than 'justify the 3rd ensign slot', what I meant was that this opens up new possibilities for interesting builds on the larger cruisers.
Again, no it does not.

There is literally nothing else to slot ensign Eng slots other than EPTX and ENG Team. That's the problem with a third Ensign Eng slot. You have EPTX abilities and their shared cool-downs, and you have ET which competes with TT and is generally poor value at T1 other than debuff clearing.


So if you don't have those slotted there now, what exactly do you have slotted there?



But don't take my word for it, here's a handy set of charts.
