I am going to put this in the Discussion section, since I am not sure if it is a good idea or not.

The Torpedo Point Defense System from the Armitage. I'd like to be able to mount it on other ships than the Armitage/fleet Armitage...

The fact that the Armitage already has one unique feature (the hangar), I see no reason why we couldn allow the console to be multi ship, not unlike the Point Defense System from the Thunderchild.

As I said, I havnt considered all the angles, so I want to hear if theres support for this or not?
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

I agree 100% the only reason that I have not bought the Armitage is that the console is not interchangable.

If you want to waste the console space I think you should be allowed to put both on any ship.

Tier 5 ships have their console unique to their ship and fleet ship if its applies...I don't see a reason why should give one ship special treatment.

Well to be honest, I'd have no problem with the other T5 consoles being multi ship as well.. That said, I have none of those, so I can't compare.

Some of the Consoles should only be for specific ships. An example would be the saucer seperation console, you can't use that on a Defiant because there is no Saucer section to seperate. But all ships can have torpedo launchers so they could all fire large vollies of torpedoes as the Armitage does.

The problem with allowing it to be mounted on any otehr ships is that the Akira-class (from which the Armitage is derived) was the only Starfleet ship to even have port and starboard mounted torpedo tubes, making it the only Starfleet ship to have full 360-degree torpedo coverage.

That being said, I wouldnt arge with it if I could have a Quantum Torpedo varient to put on my Sovereign Refit along side the Wide-arc launcher.

Why should a special console be limited to just one ship?

It should be mountable on all Escorts as that's what the originating ship class is.
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

I'm absolutely in favor of this idea; it would make Cryptic a ton of money, as many people would buy the Armitage solely to get the console.

More money for Cryptic is more shinies for us. Make it so!

I'd be OK with this console being used on other ships. I'm more OK with this being on cruisers since they are larger and have more room to store torpedoes. Of course that only matters if you believe that the number of torpedoes a ship will carry is finite. But yeah that console isn't OP so make it usable buy other ships.

Another way to screw KDF no doubt, not only would any ship have cloak which not even all KDF ships have cloak, we have no good worth while consoles at Tier 5. But silly me who cares about the KDF at all.
