# 1 beam array: fire at will

hey

when I use this ability with only a single target, do I get any kind of damage buff at all over using my normal weapons?

thanks!

Is this skill really useful? Normally I just concentrate fire on one ship at a time, and this skill seems like a limited time fire.

It's fairly useless as this point. I think Devs have said this and Beam Overload are both being looked at.

Any reason to take this over Beam Overload?

I can't see the point in hitting random targets, when I want to kill the one I'm chasing.

The point:
Cruiser and science ship captains that are busy buffing and debuffing may not want be bothered with targeting and focus on other things, while not have their weapons be completely idle.

If you've been jammed and have a bunch of High Yield Plasma Torpedoes and Boarding Craft flying at you. Could save your life.

For Tier 1 Bridge Officer abilities (Tactical)
Torpedo Yield - Primary Choice for Escort Classes
Beam - Overcharge - Second choice for Escort Classes
Tactical Team - Generally for Cruiser/science Classes for tanking and healing purposes.

Boarding Party arguement, As an escort class, you are generally faster and normally wouldn't be close range to enemy ships using Boarding parties, your ability to switch to attacking boarding party shuttles and torps will grant you no reason to take Tactical Team.
