It is not less each time you equip a console.

There is no diminishing returns on the tactical console, unlike some other consoles (armor/alloys and field generators come to mind).

Every tactical console gives you a boost on your base amount of the weapon. For instance, each one of my MK XII phaser relays (purple) gives me ~90 DPS. This is on a MK XII phaser DHC.

Yes. Take my example above, I'm getting ~90 DPS on each purple MK XII phaser relay on put on my ship. I can equip 5 tactical consoles. That's about 450 DPS more in total. Now, multiply that amount by how many similar weapons you have. I run an all cannon escort build. Four cannons on my fore weapon slots means 4 x 450 = 1800 more total DPS (and I'm not even counting the boost from my turrets). Include buffs, and the extra DPS is even greater.

If they gave every ship 3 special console slots and prohibited them from going In to sci/tac/eng slots surly it would make for better game play.
That would make this game too easy for PvE and PvP. It's already easy enough as it is.
