One thing I noticed is that the tooltip doesn't show a proc chance for the plasma burn on torpedoes when you have the Romulan science +plasma consoles loaded. Is this a tooltip bug, or do the consoles not effect kinetic weapons?
Those effects will only occur on energy weapons. So torpedoes/mines no, KCB yes.

You sure? Console just says "Adds plasma burn proc to non-plasma weapons" and doesn't specify energy only, as far as I recall...
Quite certain. I believe the long form description (when you "examine" the console) spells out the DEW only aspect of the proc if it doesn't say so explicitly on the basic tooltip itself.
My understanding is that the two (OWA and plasma DoT additions) were evolved from the subnuc doff (chance to remove two buffs from a target) which only function on energy weapon attacks, using the same trigger mechanic, but a different "payload" if you will.
