Let's boil this down to what it really is : 800 CP for a console.
Yes, and that's one of the problems, it's transferable to any science ship, like certain science ships needed more survivability.....

One word answer: precedent.

Today Cryptic unveils a ship that's undeniably more powerful than all other Tier 2 ships. Perhaps in a couple months they'll come out with a ship that is C-Store only and more powerful than all other Tier 5 ships. You have 2 options -- play in an inferior ship or pay money to have a competitive edge over those that don't. For me, that's not something I want to see.

I mean, the lower levels are a bit of a snoozefest, so if its okay for this ship to grant you 2 extra powers (the console and the new Boff skill) then it should be okay for the default ships to gain that 1 additional power as well. And the console slot.

Problem solved!
This could work although there still needs to be *some* drawback to the Rhode Island over the Nova (as it has an additional console slot and better impulse modifier) -- even if it's something relatively minor like inertia or turn rate.

Agreed. It's too powerful. We must stop this HERE in the past.....wait wrong speech.

Either way save refits for making lower tiered ships at higher levels.

That is true. Its just dumb for a refit to end up in the same tier as the unmodified ship.

Makes zero sense.

I'd be happy with that idea. Unlikely to happen, but yeah, i'd be happy with that.

No thank you. I got C-points (Atari Tokens at the time, so thankfully most of the money didn't go to help fund this sort of pay to win project) to buy this ship when i heard about it first, but after seeing it and giving feed back over the weeks, you'll not see me flying it.
