The idea is bound to character not account. It should not be bound character for only get one. It does not make sense that it bound to character when you get 4 characters you can not give the item to the character that you want.

You should just be able to claim it on anyone of your characters via the C-Store, under Legacy Items, it's a pre-order bonus. Is yours a Universal Console, because these were tac consoles last time I checked? I made a thread recently asking to have it changed to a universal console.

I wonder if plasma tac consoles boost it's dps since it's a plasma turret. I did some testing with it a while to see if it was viable with all these targetable torps and shuttles flying around and the dps was pitiful and not worth carrying since it wouldn't shoot often enough to kill the torps.

So I wonder.

If you have open inventory space and it shows under your legacy tab you can claim 1 per character, I always claim mine on new toons since its pointless to waste ec to buy a tac console for a lvl 1-10 character, it can only be slotted in your tactical console slot but running 1 right now on a new romulan alien gen carracter in the t'varo refit it helps with low level npcs, well plus my Rare Quantum mines mk II I got awhile back more fun than a turret since its about 1200dmg per mine (using the standard depolyment of 4 mines without any DPs i'm netting 4800 dmg )

IRRC plasma infusers do boost the damage but its been awhile since I tested that.

I don't waste EC on any consoles under lvl 50, pretty much fly all universal consoles until I hit 50 (well 45, when I can equip MK XI).

In all honesty the automated turret is a nice-to-have early addition, but it's usefulness drops as your skills increase. There are a dozens or so alternatives that deal with incoming
destructible torpedoes.

It usefulness returns however in the new atmospheric stf, when placed on a shuttle. It takes a tactical console slot, which isn't cool but suddenly Elachi HY torpedos are no longer a threat.
