engineers would have a role if it was hard to max energy. if it was basically impossible for a sci to get 125 aux energy, or a tac to get 125 weapons energy, there would be room for eng to have an edge at something. they should be energy wizerds, but energy is so plentiful that everyone has enough to do whatever they want with it.

Bah, they get ramming speed! When a giant, hulking cruiser decides to ram you with all its might, even bracing for impact won't save you!

Who would die? As long as the Engineers had more caffeine, eventually the other team would fall asleep after the many hours that the match lasted...then the Engineers could kill them!

TBH, I was going to do a longer post with builds for each of them - but I'm still trying to level up my 4th Eng (one of the two Healing Engs since my first two - uh - don't heal... /cough). Well, that's only partially true. I did 1.1m damage and over 700k healing in an Arena the other day. Sure, maybe a single AtS1 and HE2 were thrown to somebody else (admittedly after my target jumped during a SS and I gave the guy attacking the guy I healed EPS)...but still.

Oh, oh... Inverse Shield Polarity. Can cast it on a target, cleared as an Engineering debuff (in other words, ET won't work) - functions like the Elite Fleet Phasers for everybody attacking that target.

EPS Overload. Can cast it on a target, cleared as an Engineering debuff (in other words, ET won't work) - causes damage to the ship for any power level above 50, scaled based on the number above 50 and cumulative from all four subsystems.

Broadcast Shield Frequency. Can cast it on a target, cleared as an Engineering debuff (in other words, ET won't work) - causes the frequency of the target's shields to lock, allowing for greater shield penetrating damage from attackers.

Engineering Fleet - summons a group of three Sci Odyssey healboats.

One could have so much fun...eh?

Butbutbut... nobody says "invert the polarity!" on Star Trek! D: It's always "reverse the polarity!", as if somebody put the batteries in backwards.

Why not some treknobabble like... "Entangle Feedback Redirection"? It's three words, so it'll form a nice TLA, each of the words is sufficiently "sciency", it sounds like something your boffs would shout while wildly waving their hands, and it says nothing about what the ability actually does!

"Captain, our EPS conduits are overloaded! We can't sustain this level of power until they're repaired!"
"What? Nonsense! Clearly, there's only one answer: MOAR POWAH!"
"But, captain-"
"I SAID MOOOOOOAR POWAAAAAAH!"
"...yessir"

Ooh, just like Geordi and his visor!

YES YES SO MUCH YES

...just make sure the AI on those healboats is marginally good and that they're not just throwing heals on each other all the time D:
