Honestly the only reason I can see the Scimitar being in the lockbox.
Its a faction ship, moment it goes Lock Box they are admitting the Romulans are not a faction or that faction ships can get lock box.
Also its absurd to go about the Cascading Biogenic Pulse since it have a huge startup time, make the ship immobile, its telegraphs it area of attack and of course, it can always be toned down to be in line with other "power" like the Phaser Lance or Isometric Charge.
Its only a issue for NPCs that likely will just not evade it on purpose but that goes both ways, if they leave the AoE its not as if you could actually move.
