A few times in the fleet mark event "Klingon Red Alert" something odd happens to my ship every now and then -- everything gets locked down -- all consoles, weapons, and skills, for two entire minutes. No skill can be activated, every icon on my tray goes into countdown mode. This does not happen often -- so far it has happened to me two or three times I think.
Is this some sort of NPC weapon that disables my ship for two minutes or is this a bug? I still receive fire and damage...in one case, this is what basically killed me.
VM was nerfed a long time ago for having much less than that!
Hmm...I am going to have to look into it once again. I stopped slotting it after it got nerfed...if this is what is indeed happening.
Edit: I do not think that this is viral matrix...all systems go offline simultaneously and all of them have the same two minute timer -- VM shuts systems down one by one...at least that is what the skill description says for VM1...is VM3 different?
The 2m cooldown bug has a thread in the bug forum, including steps to reproduce (pg 9). Basically, don't use Engineering Team until it is fixed.

Viral matrix, rerouted through the dilithium crystal chamber, using the crystals to act as a lense, in order to amplify the resonance magnitude, simultaneously, knocking all systems off-line for two minutes. Geordie must have had something to do with it.
