So in order to balance it something would have to go. Perhaps less BO stations for more consoles, or visa versa. Less maneuverability for more power, or whatnot.

exactly. its all a balancing act. which is what i feel would go nicely with players if this was allowed. a player could arm their nova and have it geared for speed at the cost of weapons, or have a star cruiser be rigged for more shield strength over hull strength. again, however, to do such a thing would have to have a complete overhaul of the currant system, something i doubt cryptic is going to want to do any time soon
