It's going to affect some of your science space abilities.

When you look at a science skill, it'll tell you what system it uses. If you boost that system with consoles and your deflector dish, it'll improve that ability. Click on the power in the skills window of your science bridge officer, and it'll tell you what subsystem it uses over on the right. If a console you're using is boosting a system that none of your science powers use, then it's essentially going to waste.

Example, the only science power I'm currently using is jam targeting sensors, which uses the sensor subsystem. Therefore, I make sure I have a deflector dish and a science console that boosts sensors.

Some of the system names sound similar, so it pays to pay attention.
