When activated, this console will emit a devastating burst of tachyon radiation that will deal instant heavy shield damage to foes with 5km. Affected foes will also suffer shield damage over time and have their shield hardness reduced for a short time.

While this starship trait is slotted and you activate Beam: Overload I, II or III you will allow your pets to use Beam: Overload I.

Remember that your pets must have weapons that are compatible with these attack upgrades in order to benefit from this starship trait
