Originally I thought the bonuses were just flat, for example, putting three +20 Phaser Tactical Consoles on an Escort would give a +60 bonus (combined with the specialization skill that would make 112), but then someone mentioned they wouldn't stack, someone else said they wouldn't stack linearly...

Now, what is true? And if there are diminishing returns of identical bonuses from multiple consoles, how much is this effect? For example, aforementioned 3x +20 Phaser consoles, what bonus would you get from them? +20? +60? Something in between?

I'd be curious to hear the answer on this.... I assumed they stacked... otherwise why even allow double consoles?

But there are several things that we are allowed to do that are essentially a waste if time / effort, so I wouldn't presume to say anything definitive...

My guess would be a 25% decrease for each additional so 100/75/50

or 20/15/10 for a total of 45. Sounds like a reasonable rate, at least.

If this is the case, it would make 3x identical +20 consoles better than a combination of +20 Phaser, +15 Beam and +15 Cannon for a loadout based on phaser beams and cannons.

Can anyone confirm?

They stacked in OB. I had two +7.5% disruptor consoles. IIRC it looked linear. I didn't run the numbers but the second console was giving me at least close to the full effect.

They probably stack but not linearly.

2 7.5% consoles would give 15.56% increase overall instead of 15% (1.075 x 1.075)

that would be my guess.
