You do have a choice. If you don't want to use an EPS console, then you need to change your weapon setup. But if you want maximum forward firepower, then you have to pay for it.

Escorts don't need EPS consoles at all with an appropriate weapon loadout, but too many people think the only way to play one is 3x DHCs, torp, and 3x turrets which is almost the worst EPS situation you can possibly have.
