What Ability Is This?

I've started seeing this ability being used on occasion. It's not something I've seen often before, but have seen it several times lately. It's like a spinning Gravity Well that's blue-white in color, instead of pink/purple. Here's a screenshot of it.



I'd like to know what it is, so I can look up how to get it. Thanks for your time! ^_^

    Subspace Vortex. It's a lockbox skill, available via Infinity BOFF training manual pack, or from the old Xindi-Terrestrial lockbox.

    It's the Eject Red Matter console off the Jellyfish - Subspace Vortex is way smaller than that, is a more muted blue and doesn't have a pure black center but a more greyish-black one.​​
    Like special weapons from other Star Trek games? Wondering if they can be replicated in STO even a little bit? Check this out: https://forum.arcgames.com/startrekonline/discussion/1262277/a-mostly-comprehensive-guide-to-star-trek-videogame-special-weapons-and-their-sto-equivalents


    A normie goes "Oh, what's this?"
    An otaku goes "UwU, what's this?"
    A furry goes "OwO, what's this?"
    A werewolf goes "Awoo, what's this?"

    "It's nothing personal, I just don't feel like I've gotten to know a person until I've sniffed their crotch."

    Passion and Serenity are one.
    I gain power by understanding both.

    It wasn't Subspace Vortex, as I have that, and Subspace Vortex is nowhere near as big and not as bright white in color. But thank you for the suggestion, it does look similar. I should have mentioned that it wasn't Subspace Vortex, my bad.

    After searching for the Eject Red Matter console and ability, that's definitely it. It makes me sad that it's from a promo ship, but go figure. That's probably why it looks so neat! Thank you both.
