is not a bad idea, but i think a raw bonus is better than a %,
25% is too much

Maybe increase the duration to 8 seconds, and reduce the bonus.

The only problem is that this will boost the beam escorts ^^

I don’t think Beam Escorts would benefit from this Ability nearly as much as Cruisers or especially not as much as Science Ships. I purposely didn’t have this proposed ability share a cool-down with Beam Target Subsystem Abilities.

Perhaps the percent bonus is too high… maybe not… that would require testing.

Maybe "Energy Weapon Focus Fire", or even simply "Focus Fire" would be better. Let it cover beams and cannons.
