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.

Thanks!

SNB is an invisible god ray that instantly hits the target, upon impact it will display a purple clock of doom.. It sets all the cooldowns to a set duration. There is no way to counter it at this time (can't wait for tribble to hit live, then I'll update my counters guide, this time i promise)

Yeah its energy syphon.

And faithborn SNB is a blue/violet beam shooting the enemy and then the violet clock appears. But as soon as you see the beam its applied anyway. I am just stating this to sound clever.

I'd definitely keep SciTeam for the shield heal. I run 2x SciTeam II, for the shield heal alone. The fact that it (currently) counters VM/Sci debuffs, adds a damn good resistance bonus, and +Starship Ops is just icing on the cake.
