You are talking about ALPHA strikes.

We are talking about PRESSURE damage.

The opportunity cost of shrugging off pressure damage is essentially zero. Elite fleet shields, EPtS (which you would carry anyway), Human boffs, t4 shield passives and TT to use all four shield facing (an ability that you also carry in almost all builds).

This is downright insulting after I had already posted a lengthy treatise in the other thread (and reposted here) which included numbers and abilities and everything.
