They stack, but they stack on your base power damage, before all modifiers (including skill points, I believe). There is no diminishing returns.

I get 90 more DPS with a mk XII phaser relay (purple) going from 3 to 4 consoles and from 4 to 5 consoles. The same number each time I put a console on (maybe a .1 difference here and there).

Link to where a Cryptic dev has said it was supposed to be diminishing returns? From what I had heard, it is working as intended.

Have you tested it? I didn't test that in Tribble, because it appears to just scale with the weapon system power. It just drains -10 from engines every time it's fired.
