You know do know EMP is already extremely effective at causing a complete power failure and fully immobilizing a ship, right?Penalize ships for running out of power! If a ship's drops to 0 power and attempts to draw additional power, it should suffer a power re-gen penalty or a "complete power failure" cooldown of 0 power output duration proportional to reactor size/number of power blocks. Even if it were brief, this would provide disincentive to pushing your ship to the limit, and would provide a niche for EMP effect modules. A ship could disable a combatant without destroying by using EMP to trigger the Power Failure debuff, and using STOP to immobilize them.
