Science consoles most likely. The +18 ones arent significant anyway compared to each of these consloles.
I wonder, is there even a shared cooldown on these new crapabilities? Or can you just fill your ship with 6 7 or 8 universal OP consoles?
So far, I don't think there are any ships that can hold two of the new universal consoles. (They are all limited by ship class). But they did introduce a shared cooldown between the Decoy console and Ablative Armor.
If I was a designer of these consoles, I would put such a limitation in from the start. That avoids unwanted side effects of combining different powers.
But of course, I am not a professional game designer. I just look at what WotC does. :p
Which console slot will i have to give up to use it
This will probably come out with the Captain level Defiant reskin. It'll be a tactical console that can be used on any Escort. They've already done one for Science and Engineering... so we can only assume Tactical is next.
Though it won't be a cat, for us it will be a Tribble Torpedo that hits and shuts down all of the targets systems.
