I'm not sure why BOFF powers aren't considered to have an opportunity cost, it didn't make much sense to me then and it doesn't make much sense now.
I don't understand the 'opportunity cost' theory with siphon drones either? Yeah, I get that plas leech takes up a console slot but Siphon Drones don't, however. So there is no opportunity cost, in fact, for Siphon Drones because they are hanger pets which is a totally different animal than a console. It's hard for me to dismiss the effectiveness of drones compared to any of their counterparts mountable on the Vo'Quv anyway. I fail to see how it's an opportunity cost given such limited choices for what's actually decent that can be substituted on a Vo'Quv.
