I think you might have just been mistaken. I know that a lot of times the pace of the fight I'm in can make my cooldowns seem shorter or longer. For instance, if I am in a fight with an escort that using fast hit and run tactics, my cooldowns seem to take an eternity. But in a slugfest with a cruiser, the slower pace and lower burst damage make my skills seem to refresh quicker.
Also base cooldown for the BoP is 60 seconds and when they tied it in with aux power cryptic normalized it to 100 aux power. What this means is that to get the same cds that we had pre aux power update, we have to run 100 aux. So you can see how if 100 aux give 60 seconds, adding only 25 power won't give you enough to halve the cd unless 25 power setting tripled it. And honestly I think even the fed exclusive players who want carriers thrown out of the game would agree that both ends of that spectrum are terribad.
