Butbutbut... nobody says "invert the polarity!" on Star Trek! D: It's always "reverse the polarity!", as if somebody put the batteries in backwards.

Why not some treknobabble like... "Entangle Feedback Redirection"? It's three words, so it'll form a nice TLA, each of the words is sufficiently "sciency", it sounds like something your boffs would shout while wildly waving their hands, and it says nothing about what the ability actually does!

"Captain, our EPS conduits are overloaded! We can't sustain this level of power until they're repaired!"
"What? Nonsense! Clearly, there's only one answer: MOAR POWAH!"
"But, captain-"
"I SAID MOOOOOOAR POWAAAAAAH!"
"...yessir"
*kaboom*

...wait, wha, i thought ET cleared engineering debuffs? ._.

Ooh, just like Geordi and his visor!

One could have so much fun...eh?
YES YES SO MUCH YES

...just make sure the AI on those healboats is marginally good and that they're not just throwing heals on each other all the time D:
