This thread is so sad. People bending over backwards in the small hope geckos reads this AND acts on it.
To me personally its hard to determine whether gecko is just a bad game designer or simply cornered by cryptics limited understanding of how to make money off of us.

well, he should state clearly the constraints he is under if that is the case.

ZPM, ZPEC, it hardly matters; cryptic stole the idea for the name from stargate, and now we have zero-point energy generators

Considering the console is described as functioning fundamentally differently than a ZPM (ZPM = giant mega space-magic battery, Zero Point Energy Console = power conversion unit), it does matter.

Grow up you two, it was a mistake in naming it and it hardly matters we know what console he was on about.

Back on topic I would much rather not see an armour slot on cruisers as it will limit what the designers can get away with in terms of buffs. Make it a warp core and you can have it not only alter power levels, drains and other things but you could even say it diverts extra power to the hull increasing resistance or structural integrity. You will find it will have a longer use than armour and will not shoe horn cruisers into the tank role and promote more diversity in builds.

Congratulations on completely missing the point. There never was any doubt as to which console was being discussed.

So I've been thinking it over, and now I find myself thinking about how this would actually help cruisers...

It could free up Engineering consoles for other uses, and allow otherwise underused consoles to see the light of day. However, I wonder how this would help with other issues such as BOff powers or the inefficiency of beam arrays (which Capt***** insists are working as designed), as well as the overall role of cruisers in gameplay.
