Just tested it, the bonus is not build in. I tested it with a Excelsior and it's T3 version - Advance Heavy Cruiser, also a Dreadnought. I remove all console/equipment on all 3 ship, and each i put on a white mark X and mark IV beam array. All 3 of them has the same dps which is at 283 (Mark IV) and 355 (Mark X). Also their energy level are the same as well (set to balance and result in 73/75/73/70 for every single one of them). According to "passive bonus" shown in the c-store tooltip, not only Excelsior should have higher weapon dps (due to +energy weapon), also the engine and aux. power level should be different too.

So question to cryptic, where is the console or it's bonus?

Well, in that case..

Yeah, there's no console, apparently. It seems to just activate the transwarp abilities (To any Fed-passable sector block) under the Transwarp menu.

Which is fine with me, because that frees up the console for other items.

Forget about the T3 for now.


So you purchased the T5 expecting a console with the ability+stats, and you were expecting this because of a incorrect description from cryptic.

You have confirmed with tests that you do not receive a console, which is intented by cryptic, but you have also confirmed that you arent receiving passive stats from the ship itself.

If this is the case, and you were mislead by a typo/incorrect description from cryptic, then it is the fault of cryptic, imo.

Derailing the thread with T3 ships/consoles/builds etc isn't getting to the issue. The issue is you were mis-sold an item.

Sheesh you guys are as dumb as a sack of kittens.



The T5 console was eliminated after tribble testing. There is no bonus. Transwarp is integrated. Cryptic forgot to update the description on the ship page.


That's it. that's all. End of story.

Right. Plus

+5 Power to all Subsystems is the standard feature for all cruiser class ships. It's not an additional bonus for the Excelsior.

Yep. Of course they were expecting an extra five points on top.
