Sure this doesn't mean anything if you start of with drone controll, but then again, every ship starts with weapons (usually...). And depending on the amount of weapon slots you have, you can just keep it in a weapons slot and never use it in combat.
And face it, most people when they get drone control, it's not for offensive purposes unless they are forced to take that route.
Again, the whole re-roll the fight only popped in because I got that event. The main idea I wanted to pitch was being able to delay the fleet after winning a fight against it.
To begin with the drone option was never meant to be very cost efficient. Again, I still don't see why drone systems would need this additional perk and why the player should be able to escape that easily when having combat drones equipped. Free escape is different from gaining a jump on empty beacons. I'm generally opposed to partly enabling empty beacon options after fights, cause this creates inconsistency. Right now the mod implies that you can only do empty beacon stuff at empty beacons because you have the time there, which is at least somewhat consistent. If you can delay the fleet with drones after a fight, why can't you lay minefields after each battle or chat to your crew? Of course the reason is that these options need to appear in controlled, quantifiable circumstances to be balanced against other options.

Your what? Well the option says:
(Zoltan Ship) Upgrade you teleporter devices with late stage shield phase technology. [ Scrap: -70; Augment: Zoltan Shield Bypass ]
But yeah, I can see that this isn't exactly consistent if you don't have a teleporter yet... should probably be rephrased.
