I should have learned never to aruge with a dev or he will just turn a little oopsie into reality.

However you may want to reconsider the global cooldown of 15s down to 10s.

Cruisers who rely on cycling emergency powers (since that's 80% of all their available Ensign powers) basically lose out the most with the new system if they attempt to cycle two sets of emergency powers.

I suspect your intent was not a cruiser nerf, but looking at it on paper that's what this appears to be.

I'll post more after testing.
