One of the tier 2 passives for Nukura rep says:

"Your directed energy attacks ignore some of your target's shields in space combat."

What is a directed energy attack exactly?

If I were to guess I'd say it's an attack like from Beams or cannons as opposed to something like a Shockwave that is undirected and just hits a whole area.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Pretty much anything that isn't a torpedo.

It's a targetted energy attack (beam, cannon, turret), as opposed to an AoE of some sort, I believe.

DHC, DC, DBB, Cannon, Beam Array, and Turret are directed energy weapons.

Thanks for the info. I was afraid it only meant damage using that engineering skill that's called Directed-something-something. But if it'll be all regular beam weapon attacks that makes it an awesome passive to have.

This passive might be interesting when combined with DEM....Though I thought it read as ground instead of space. I'll have to check on it again.

Would it apply to ship special abilities, like the Vesta's focused phaser beam blast?
