Wrong on a few counts. The main reason that cruisers don't spec into Threat control is because it's not a ship specific skill. And the reason a lot of PLAYERS don't spec into threat control is because there is no off switch. I fly all 3 ship classes, and tbh, if I had TC active on my comet or escorts, I would have issues. TC on my cruisers? Psssh. But on my other ships, not nearly as ideal. And I am sure I am not the only one. Put a toggle switch for that skill, and all of a sudden you will see more tanking cruisers actually tanking.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
