I have a question about that item. Shouldn't equiping it actually show bigger shield value in the ship defence info? I mean my shields are still 7800s after I equiped this console. And in space still numbers don't seem to change.
I'm not asking if it stacks. I'm trying to figure out if it even works. As I said my shield power stays at the same level as before equipiding the console.
They work, but you need to enter something like a DSE, space exploration mission, etc. before you'll see the changes reflected in the ship stats. I believe outside Earth space dock also works for this.
