Grappler on a shuttle?
Forgive me for starting a new thread to ask such a simple question, but I didn't receive any reply when I posted elsewhere.

I don't have the NX class and I don't really care about it's console, as I'd rather use an actual tractor beam ability or some other "+1" ship console for my VA. Still, I've started thinking about the fact that the Grappler is considered to be a universal item equipable "on any Starfleet vessel in any console slot". Hence my question - does that apply to shuttles/fighters as well? If I purchased the NX would I be able to put it's grappler on a Delta Flyer or Tal'Kyr shuttle?

The ship may be "only" 400CP, but I'd rather ask first than be disappointed later.

The same question can be asked about the Oberth console.

Just tested the grappler on a runabout which I would presume has the same restrictions as other small vessels and it does work on it.

Thanks! That's one reason the think about a purchase. Would be handful on my Tal'Kyr I imagine, both during story content (new FE is supposed to have a shuttle mission) and the upcoming (hopefully) shuttle PvP.

Oh, one more question - what's the cooldown on the Grappler?
