Science Team II


Hazard Emitters I
Science Team II

Also do ship consoles of the same type stack?

For example if I had 2 +10% to shields capacity would that give me 20% to shield capacity?

Thanks allot
If you have multiples of the same ability, all it means is that you can use it more often. For example, if you used Science Team II then Science Team I will go into a short cooldown - shorter then if you had used it though. It will be available for use way before Science Team II is ready again. Same theory if you had two officers both with Science Team II. This works in a similar fashion with any powers that operate off the same system. So if you had an officer with Engineer Team I and another with Science Team II, same thing would happen because they both work off the system "Crew".

As to the consoles, yes they should stack.
