You need science team now to counter subnucleonic beam. SNB will kill your buffs, you can't counter that, but also increase all cooldowns of all abilities greatly - which you can counter with science team. (my SNB increases cooldowns by 245% for every skill used the next, I think it was 40seconds)
And of course you still need it against Jam Sensors and scramble sensors.
You could change from 2 science teams to 1, but would keep the 1.
Good to know. What is the game image of the subnucleonic beam? Some guy in PvP last night had some sort of blue funnel going from his ship to my engines, any idea what that was and how to counter it? Also, is there some way to find out what powers are being used against you? The combat chat window goes too fast to read in PvP.
