2. I know it helps your power levels transfer quicker from one system to another. So for instance, when I drop out of full impulse my power levels go back quicker.

3. I was under the impression that it DID help your sheild redistrubtion. I am apparently mistaken in this.

4. I can't seem to find out if it helps with powers like auxiliary to structural. I would think it does, however, point three teaches me I could be wrong.

So know my questions...

1. What exactly is the console for?

2. I run an atrox carrier with all anti proton beams. The only boff powers I have that would like be affected are emergency power to sheilds and auxiliary to strucutral as I dont run beam overloads. I only play pve, usually STFs. Given all that, is it better if I replace this console with some other one?
1) Correct on both points
2) Correct
3) Nope
4) Nope

Your questions:

1) You've essentially already answered it yourself.
2) I'd say the console isn't helping you at all.

On a side note, you may be thinking of the starship electro-plasma skill you can put character skill points into. This skill does improve the emergency power to x skills.

Since I beam overload on all of my builds I always have at least one EPS Regulator console, to help with the power drain.

  1. true
  2. true
  3. you are correct, it does NOT help your shields.
  4. no it does not help with any of the Aux BO powers.
  • The console is truly only for those that swap powers around (science) or those like escorts who use a lot of power drain abilities. Such as Cannon Rapid Fire, Beam Overload, Cannon Scatter Volley, etc.
  • It would be best to replace that console on your carrier.

I use one on my Galaxy-X, as seems to help power recovery after use the Phaser Lance.

does the phaser lance drain your weapon power? I don' think so...

The wiki states: "When used effectively, this is a devastating weapon, but players must watch out for the massive weapon power drain it causes"

Assume this is still accurate.

I didn't check that recently but as far as I can remember it was -50 weapons power level after you use it.

Each salvo of the phaser lance drains the weapons power as much as any beam overload.

So guessing the EPS console is of benefit to the Galaxy X in that case.
