Electro-Plasma System Flow
Lieutenant Commander

This skill improves the speed at which power can flow between all of your subsystems. Each point of Electro-Plasma Flow skill improves the base value of your Power Transfer Rate by 1%.

Your base Power Transfer Rate allows up to a maximum of 5 subsystem power to be added or subtracted from a subsystem every 1 second. A bonus of 100% would move the same amount of subsystem power twice as quickly.

Before investing heavily in this skill, it is advisable to experiment with EPS Flow Regulators first, as they can provide a very large bonus to power transfer rate at the cost of one engineering console slot.
