Emergency power to X with batteries appear to be superior to giving the EPS a single console slot.
This does depends on the ship you are running, if a Cruiser, then you should be on 125/75 and 125/65 in both weapons and sheilds anyway, and you use EPtX to get these up at the start of a fight anyway. Question is tho, what do you use in the extra eng console slot.

RCS are basically useless in a cruiser. Neutronium Alloy + Ship Specific Conole + Assimilated, you the 4th could be used for another Neutronium if you like I spose
