Removing tactical consoles is out of the question, so the decision becomes, am I going to cripple my shields? have no armor? reduce turn rate cause I won't have room for an rcs?
You realize that this is part of balance? If you want to equip a crit console, then you should have to give up on a field generator, armor console, or RCS accelerator. It means you have to trade one stat for another.
