with fleet deflector + po1 you get the 1min ct skills (gw,vm...) down to 45sec. it is nice battle mod. and at pvp you get more heals too.

No one's said Boarding Party or Feedback Pulse? I was PVP sparring with a friend, seeing how he could improve his ship. He kept throwing both at me. With 2 TT's boarding parties were neutralized almost instantly, and the pulse did so little damage as to not even register.

The power than annoys me most? Tractor Beam Repulsors, for sure. I get a great shot lined up, APA, APB, CRF, Fire one my mark, and get ready to unleash purple cannon death, and just when I get ready to hit the fire button.... *whoosh* a repulsor pushes the target out of range, or at that odd 46% elevation where I can't target it.

Feedback Pulse can be pretty strong, actually.

It works for BA's if one use EPTW, ATB or DEM Doffs with it and BO, but takes timing to pull off.

Back on topic... Emergency Power to Engines is not that great, Auxiliary to Dampeners+ Evasive Manoeuvres does much better.
I can agree. EPTE does not give seem all that great compared to those two powers.

Hmm... interesting, I'll have to keep that one in mind.

Mask energy signature became somewhat less useless with the introduction of Azure Nebula rescue. Somewhat...

Maybe I'm missing something but tachyon beam 1 seems to do nothing to someone's shields, not knock them out (or at least down) like it's supposed to, not really target shield subsystem (the tactical ability that target their shields)

I have to agree. After the introduction of AtB DOffs the PO ability is useless and not worth the effort of training.
