Hull Repair, Subsystem Repair, as well as other things...
The Subsystem Repair thing I've always kind of thought of as a waste - it's useless without crew and if you have the crew, it's not really that much of a boost. It's a middle-ground thing - if you've got half your crew, then SSR would help. The more you slide either way, the less useful it feels...
With TBR, I use it to push somebody away from a healer or a healer away from somebody they're healing... hit TBR, Evasive, Eng Battery... they PH/APO, Subnuc them and keep pushing.
The GW/TR are mainly anti-fighter spam - as well as general battlefield spam.
The focus on damage comes from the mines/torps. Head toward the target, fire a spread, fire a cluster, DPB, they'll want to turn to pursue, fire the rear cluster, and just fly around them and around them as the trans eat their hull - often leaving them exploding with full shields.
I used to fly a Sci in a Patrol Escort using a similar build - but I wanted something that could drop some spam for fighters and went with this... I lost overall single target damage, but I have fun taking out carrier spam.
Wish it worked worth a damn against ASDs - but since I mainly go FvF, it works great against ADRs.
