You can calculate it in percentages (as I have shown here) or in plain numbers (as I also have) and you should come out with the same results. So either I'm wrong, after doing all my calculations 3 times in windows calculator, or the game maths is wrong, or there is a hidden variable
Your equipping the borg console (+5 weapons power) at the same time which will obviously mess up the math. I really should have looked at those sooner.
