Either this skill has a misleading description or it does not work right. Either way I feel like I wasted a critical tier 2 Engineer skill taking it. Here is the reason I say that. In my Leningrad II, if I run nothing but engines I have initiative 26 (24 for movement +2 for captain initiative). I took Stress Engines thinking that an emergency surge of +40% from the engines would facilitate escape, but that is not at all what happened. I was on the wall moderately damaged (but with intact engines) and preparing to warp out. I fired the Stress Engines skill and then clicked Leave Map. I did take the advertised 5% hull damage immediately but ended up with my usual 26 initiative. There was no benefit at all, I got not one single extra point of energy from this self destructive +40% boost. Is this working as intended? If so, the skill is all negative without any redeeming positive effect.
