Its just a simple quality of life change when your activating an officer briefing.

An example would be a change of glow in your target shields when retaliator is activated, or a color change in the projectiles of a broadside or missiles when module amper is activated, or an engine glow when your hitting a target with its a trap.

I have been using module amper broadside to finish off ships but I'm not sure if the damage is amped.

It would be nice to have it. I use cmd just to check ping and its very clunky.
