But thats the point isnt it ? To make a new ensign level engineering skill, because there is lack of them. At the same time, removing distro from TT and creating opportunity cost for ships with limited engineering stations -> escorts.

Keep in mind that because we NEED shield distro in TT, it pretty much makes using Sci/Eng team a very dangerous endeavor.

Even more, that gimps ships with limited tac stations more and on the other hand, gives ships with limited engineering stations a free defence skill without making them to think much about their engineering boffs.

Giving shield distro to EptS does solve nothing, because everyone tries to have it at 100% uptime anyway.
