As such, he decided that it wouldn't help his hit and run excort tactics all that much, but my beam boat could definately get some benefit out of this.

Unfortuantely, we didn't get round to testing stacked EPS consoles or the EPS captain skill cause neither of us wanted ot blow CP on respeccing.
When I tested a while back it didn't seem to make much difference, but that was probably around a year ago. Definitely it was not worth using more than a single EPS console, and unless your WP was already maxed at 125, I think you'd be better off with a Plasma Distribution Manifold.

But then again PDMs were nerfed with the S5 changes, so they don't add as much power anymore.
