You obviously never noticed how my holopraphic klingon friends fire one bio-neural warhead after another, which are very real and dangerous..

Quality of spawn in photonic seems to be greatly affected by auxiliary powers. If I pop a battery just before using it I get much better chance of getting escort instead of cruiser or science vessel. I haven't been able to verify this extensivly, usually thick in combat when using them so I don't watch to closely.

But I did notice that the higher auxiliary power, the better the projections.

After activating Photonic Fleet, there's a 75% chance for Slow Clap Processor to engage, applying Slow Clap III to all friendly ships within 10km for 15 seconds. This secondary effect scales with your Auxiliary Power level, and is modified by the Particle Generators skill.
So full of win !!!

Hm, when u use your science boff abilities in a good way you don't have a 4 min cooldown with the space trait

Epic thread necro.

Photonic fleet is now much more useful than it was when this thread was started. You get larger ships, there is the Photonic Capacitor trait to take a huge chunk out of the cooldown, and the AI has been improved so that they more reliably attack enemies. Don't let this obsolete thread color current perspectives on gameplay.
