I like the idea.
Though, instead of the just the option of a weapon, console, or device in the universal slot, why not allow for a 2nd shield, a 2nd deflector, or a 2nd engine on certain ships?
For instance, keep the restriction to a weapon, console, or device in the universal slot as a base for all ships. Though, give cruisers and battle cruisers the option to slot a 2nd shield (for better tanking), science vessels a 2nd deflector (for better disabling/healing), and Klingon Bird of Preys a 2nd engine (for faster hit and run). Escorts, raptors, romulan ships, carriers, etc. would be limited to a weapon, console, or a device.
Doing that might help solve the escort (and romulan) vs non-escort imbalance.
What do you guys think?
