Setting up global cool downs (a concept that already existed in STO for several seasons) might help. Interactions between bridge officer powers and consoles that operate on the same system could be considered.

Anything that offers a passive bonus should also have a passive cost. Passives like Plasma Leech and Tet Glider could be changed to operate like DEM. But that complicates other issues:/.

The problem boils down to tier 5 PvP already being very... twitchy. There are so many abilities to keep track of and stack at all times. Now with consoles and sets we've added even more possible abilities that act totally independent of the mechanics which were already precariously balanced.
