Photonic Shockwave, for anyone that doesn't know: The Photonic Shockwave ability emits a blast of a 3 km radius around your ship, knocking back enemy ships, inflicting kinetic damage as well as disabling enemy ships for a couple of seconds. Shields drastically reduce the effect of kinetic damage.

So basically, Feds get a torp that can (theoretically) make a hole in the shields by itself, so the actual torpedo impacts on bare hull.

We get a torp that, if it hits shields, has most of its secondary ability nullified by said shields.
Combined with a spread and the shock wave chain doff, this will be fun
