How exactly does it work? Is there any sort of threat reduction associated with it, or is it literally just 2s where the enemy can't target you? Would an NPC still attack you if you're the only enemy in range, or do they start wandering off towards the next target for 2s? Is there an internal cooldown on it, does it apply an immunity buff after it expires, or none of the above?

Any other details about it are appreciated. I haven't played around with a sci captain, and I dropped Jam Sensors early on, so I really have no experience with placates.
