Really? For most Sci powers there are similar universal console powers, lobi items, p2w gimmicks.

In general, getting the most out of a high level sci power requires more then just a Cmd slot. If i then compare the opportunity cost, and effectivness of these powers, even with doffs most of the time they seem rather underwhelming. Here is a quick rundown

Tykens 3< cotton balls, breen torp, Siphon Drones, ....
GW3 < Graviton Pulse
AMS <?> SS3
JS3 < rep proc
Tach Beam< Tach mines DBP3
CPB < Tach Mines DPB3
Tractor 3 < Danoooooobs
FBP3 doesn't have a console, great for tac cpts i guess
Photonic Office 3< almost every single doff in game, as far as CD reduction goes
PSW3 <?> Nadeon detonator, since that thing flies toyour target, does the stun, and the damage, but one might argue that the aoe nature has its pros.
VM is used a lot since its one of the few things left to sci.
HE3<leadership, all kinds of rep procs borg procs,
TSS3< still great, then again TS1<?> TT1

Probably forgot a few sci skills. My point being if the effectiveness of these consoles is WAD. I don't think that the comparative sci skills are too strong at all. QUite the opposite. DPB3 tac/corts shouldn't be the better shield stripper then a fully dedicated sci/sci, imv. Finally, sci powers have counters, so they should hurt unless one uses the counter.

While we'er at it
AA> Aceton Beam
Theta < EWP, in my book, but i haven't tested theta properly, might be way off here.
