So are there any consoles that will boost the borg cutting beam?
 
Since it does kinetic damage, would the Honor Guard set boost it? How about the Rule 62 console? I think their torpedo damage bonuses should be changed to kinetic damage bonuses, since all torpedoes and mines do kinetic damage.

Or will the cutting beam be like the STF version that gates and tactical cubes use that's technically an antiproton beam?

I'd be surprised if the cutting beam would be the only item that is not boosted by FlowC....then again common sense....

I seems to remember a post that said it was unaffected by most/all consoles and had its own specific internal boosts to counter that.

Sorta a medium powerful item on any build, but not an ender of worlds on a specific build.

Well it will definetly be one per ship. Which I like because I was looking for something to replace my last rear turret on my escort and a 360 degree beam array is ideal. If it is ever effected by B:O and B:FAW then I might just swap my DCs for DBBs down the road.

Good times ahead. Shame I intend to grind Romulan rep first. Still, Cutting Beam is only, what?, Tier 2? 3? shouldnt take too long even taking a back seat to Romulans.

Oh and I also approve of changing torpedo and mine consoles to a new single console that just boosts Kinetic Damage.

It would trim down the number of different consoles nicely too.

Given the 40 hour timers between projects, its very doable to grind both reps at once.

yeah, AND if you want to, you can grind out 100 or so marks in one day and go do other stuff while you spend them. Seriously.... a single run through all of the Mol'Rihan adventure zone stuff will give you more Marks than you can spend in one day.
