Yes, I am suggesting a low damage skill meant to pull threat from all of your weapons.

Perhaps if the +Threat was so massive that even with low damage whoever hit by this would be glued to you regardless.

I also have an idea for a Sci or Engi version that would be a Threat Copy.

Ensign level ability, no idea for a name.

The effect when used on a ship or ships (Could be a multi-target AOE like Scramble Sensors) is that your ship copies the Threat of the ship they are currently targeting. If you have any Threat Control ranks it compounds the Threat you copied.

Say an Escort just Alpha'd the Tac Cube and has Threat Rating 3000 (arbitrary numbers) with 0 Threat Control, while you have 2000 Threat Rating with 9 Threat Control. You use the Threat Copy, and it makes your Threat Rating 3000 (that of the current Escort) then compound that with somesort of math formula (Math Whiz I am not) with your Threat Control to end up having more Threat.

The easiest would be to just use 3000 x 9, but that might be overkill...perhaps overkill is needed.
Constant exposure to the same opinions leads to continual reinforcement of ideas until eventually, any challenge, no matter what form it takes, is going to be met with a disproportionate sense of outrage. Room for reasoned discussion can no longer occur.
