I don't remember the exact formula off the top of my head, but the more you add the more you loose. You'll find there are all sorts of "Universal" or "Special" consoles out there now, too. These have unique stats or abilities, often belonging to a set that grants additional powers the more pieces of the set you have. Mostly these are "Unique" meaning you can only have one one a ship at a time, so they don't stack either.
Right the resistance thing rings a bell, and makes sense.
Is there a max power cap of 125 still?
Re-Skimmed the original post not sure if that was mentioned, or is still the case.
What happens if you spec beyond the max?
The meta game of all the new console types will take a while to get to grips with, just trying to get a handle on the basic mechanics again at the moment.
