Given as this is the ship's special feature, I think its cooldown needs reduced, as its far too long. 2 minutes between shots is a real handicap considering the bonus DPS a 4th rear beam could put out. Also, a weapon of this magnitude would surely have its own capacitor, meaning it really shouldn't drain 50 weapon power when activated like Beam Overload does.

I thought it was 3 minutes? Was it reduced to 2?

It's 2 minutes, but that's still way too long.

Considering the Galaxy X is the Enterprise from All good things, When you watch it fire the lance you see it firing like any other Phaser beam with a few seconds cool down, and seriously ive managed to squeeze the lance upto roughly... 13k DPS but its still 50% damage per shot.

Personally i find they maybe need to re-do most of the Galaxy X but the lance timer needs to be decreased to 30-60 seconds since it is possible to actually... Miss the shot with the lance.

Yeah, I agree completely. Its just not worth an entire weapon slot. I've already got a thread in the cruiser discussion. Pitch your ideas in there, and I'll pester Cryptic until they acknowledge its weak and arrange to fix it

I've pulled off some crazy shots with it before, like last night I nailed a cruiser for a double crit of 25k... instapop... but those crits are few and far between.

Oh, and it is a 3 minute cooldown, the timer just says 2 minutes but waits 1 minute before counting down.
