Example: If you placate a big bad tac cube who was on your butt before, chances are he'll still be wanting to shoot you after it's done.

Now yes, after the placate is done, it does give a 12 second immunity. Also, it only works on the enemy/enemies you are shooting. If you're focused on the tac cube, and he has a couple sphere buddies along, those spheres can still shoot at you unless of course you manage to placate them as well.
I will add, also:

I figured a placate was worth taking over the other option... and I'd also not have very much interest in the one that deals extra damage versus Borg only in Omega rep because I'd rather have something that works against all enemies.
