Hi, I have some questions regarding Polaron Damage in space combat.

1.) How long does the -25 power debuff last?
Or does it work some other way?
If so what determines how long the power debuff last?

2.) Does this debuff stack?
If two of my weapons get that 2.5% will tey result in a target with -50 power levels?

3.) Does Starship Flow Capacitors affect this power drain?
It says it affects things that drain power, do Polaron weapons count?

Thanks

1 between 5 and 10 seconds

2 no but skills like Fire and will and multiple beams of polaron make the chance increase

3 No this only applies to Bridge officer abilities.

Actually, it very much seems to have an effect - I don't have the skill trained myself, but sticking a rare Flow Capacitor Mk X console on my ship (+24 to Starship Flow Capacitors) improves a Polaron weapon's power drain from 25 to 28. It does the same to Tetryon Glider, and I imagine it does the same for actual Tetryon weaponry as well.

The Drain is not a debuff and does not have a set timer. The drain instantly starts recharging at your Target's power transfer rate.

It should.

Yes, it does. My Power Drain on Polaron Procs hovers at around -40. I've heard of another person getting up to -49.
