This ability in combat has been flakey, i.e., works some of the time and is prone to being interrupted. Well, I've noticed that about other abilities as well, some space abilities that refuse to fire sometimes.
What I've discovered is that if you target yourself first then fire off, say, Tactical Initiative it will always reset all CD's like it should. I mainly use it to reset Security Escort so I can get 4 guys on the ground quickly and if I'm getting shot, it's a crap shoot...unless I target myself first. Working as intended?
If this is old news to you, sorry, disregard. If this is new to you, please confirm and post your thoughts/experiences.
I didn't know it was possible to put Tac Initiative on a BO. Well, auto assist is widely used, I'm no exception so it has to stay on to make focus fire in the 5 mans easier. Maybe it is a little bugged.
