Three of my four guys will always have TT. Depending on the ship, they may even have 2x TT. One of the four runs at least one TT on every ship aside from one. That's the KDF Eng when he's in his Mirror Vor'cha.
EPtS, TSS, RSP, RSF, BFI, and MW...and well...AtS, ET, HE, PH, BFI, and MW. He also runs x/100 Shield Power for the most part.
Even there though, I've considered grabbing TT to drop out on other players.
Even though he's not built this way, imagine something like that along with the Rep Passives: Enhanced Shield Systems, Emergency Second Shielding, Hull-Repairing Nanites, and Superior Shield Repair. Heck, add in the Hull/Shield Romulan consoles, eh? Think about the various combinations of sets you can also throw together - whether you're looking at Borg set bonuses, Fleet Elite Shields, or the subvert on the KHG/AMACO?
IMHO, I'm not sure whether it's a case that TT is OP or if the Shield Distro aspect of TT should be a baseline Captain ability (any Career) with TT being modified to offset the loss of the Shield Distro.
Course, any such change to TT...could also potentially affect how ET and ST are used...which in turn could affect all the abilities they are used against. Looking at TT isn't something that should be taken lightly...
