Hi guys, me again.

After doing some reading and many people saying use EM to shield 1 and 2 for cruisers is good, I'm using it but how do you use it effectively to use both of them without each having a cool down???

Sure it 's possible, but how how?? thanks.

It doesn't matter if they're on different people or not.

When you use EPTS1 it'll trigger a full cooldown on itself, and a shorter cooldown on EPTS2. The shorter cooldown (if you've skilled up your bridge officers' powers) is the same as the duration of EPTS1, so if you trigger EPTS2 right at the end of this cooldown, you'll have minimal downtime between them. Then the same thing - EPTS2 triggers a full cooldown on itself, but a shortened one on EPTS1, which will end at the same time EPTS2's duration ends.

The Emergency Power skills also start 15s cooldowns on the EPtX skills for the other three subsystems, meaning that after 15 seconds, you can have two systems supplied with emergency power almost indefinitely (allowing for human error)... so long as you have four Engineering slots between Ensign and Lt.Cmdr and don't mind missing out on other useful Engineering buffs like Engineering Team or Reverse Shield Polarity.
