The Emergency Batteries.

And this ain't your average iStarship where you can only replace batteries by sending it in. They recharge quickly!

Why can't I use all of this so-called "emergency power" in non-emergencies? And why is there so much power reserved for emergencies? Oh wait... Cruisers can lolcycle 4 EPtX for constant +72 power. :p

It should be quite evident why this is the case, but since you really don't seem to know, I will explain you, see... Hey, is that a flying pink elephant over there?

I think honestly if they wanted the power system to make sense and be more canon they would have;

Weapons
Shields
Engines
Deflector
Aux

I seem to remember in the shows they always where charging the deflector ect.

Sci skill should have the same drain mechanic weapons do and run off Deflector power....

All Emergency power too skills should be... Aux power to... and the pool should recharge slower then all other systems... like a -100 EPS value or something. (Think like a big Hi Tech Capacitor system that charges off the warp core bleed or whatever... if it was instant power why would it be reserve or aux power right)

Won't ever happen... but its how it should have been designed from the start.

Actually, you only need to lolcycle 3 EPtX if your doin' it right. Tradeoff is 2/3's uptime on three systems vs. 100% uptime on two, but freeing up an engineering slot makes it worth it. I use EPtA, EPtW, and EPtS on Jorfaid.

ACTUALLY.........

CPB3
PSW
TRACTOR

when i use an aux battery and cast emergency power to weapons... my aux stays at max as i chain fire a 6k drain cpb3, 4 second psw stun, and maximum hold strength tractor.

i fire one beam overload and my weapons power is down, the second takes it to <50. i fire the tric to finish

and then i still have maximum aux power for cloak efficacy on the outbound.

i would take a nerf, to suggest a biased personal appraoch to this thread is horrible.

i can use my aux power to full after overloading my system and doing several offensive moves, aux to sif, hazards... etc.

this is imbalance. please take the time to fully comprhend the situation.. thanks
