From my quick testing (and parsing) on Tribble, the damage is in the same range as my phaser mk xi [critd]x3 and mk xii [critd]x3.

It's not bad, but I don't think it's $15 worth.

can TSS be used on yourself thou if you don't have an ally targeted? didn't think it could. I'm not looking to help a cruiser keep its shields up and a sci ship doesn't need my help either. In an escort thou, I find you have to keep yourself alive more than anything.
It's Aux to SIF, and I don't think it quite adds 8k. I think it really depends on how you have distributed your skill points.

And, yes, Transfer Shield Strength can be used on yourself.

Ahh, thanks. Think I will stay with science team thou. Might not heal as much shields, but it clears other things like sub-nuc beam AND does a little shield heal/resist.

And as I already have the quad, I might throw it on there and see how it does. I like the visual for it, and if I am not giving up any damage, no harm done.

Not unless you max out a lot of skills and Aux power. Even then I doubt it. Aux2str's actually more valuable for the combination of a hull heal and a damage resistance buff it offers.

We're talking something like +19% to all resistances here for the Lt version, Eng team may heal 4000 more hit points per minute at that teir but the 19% resistance boost for 40 seconds out of every minute can be massive if you don't slot a lot of armor. Most escorts don't.

The Commander version's +36% damage resistance is part of the reason some cruiser builds are so hard to bust even though they don't equip a lot of armor.
