That still fails to balance healing from ship to ship, hull healing on cruisers is too low because it is a fixed number (Based on certain factors, max hull not being one) and as such you have to find a balance where cruiser healing is enough while not making escort healing too good.

Make all healing a percentage of maximum X stat (Hull, shield etc.) then apply whatever variables and cruiser healing is good and escort healing not so good.

With regard to consoles, flekh and I proved in this thread that tac consoles, like eng consoles suffer diminishing returns, what I would like to see is the damage output from NPCs made reasonable so that engineering consoles feel like they have some effect rather than being overwhelmed in 1 hit.
