Exactly. I was excited about the Bortasqu but after trying it on Tribble I was shocked at how bad it was, the consoles themselves are useless aside from maybe the BoP and the 3 console bonus is rather bad too. I shrugged and went back to holodeck and stuck with my Vo'Quv, at least it's useful.

But I think what really makes the Bortasqu so bad in the eyes of a lot of people is that it's utter junk compared to the Odyssey, which it's supposed to be the equal of. The Odyssey console set is nice and 2 out of 3 of the individual consoles are also good, the Aquarius being the odd one out.
