I have the X and the Exploration Refit and I think that it was stated that wed be able to take the separation console from the Refit and slot it on the X.

Im primarily a KDF only player; however, I cant wait to try out separation with the X.

My worry here is that the Galaxy R which is also a C-store ship people have paid for is going to go from "not quite up to scratch" which is already unacceptable to being totally obsolete as a result of this. Even the boff layout's less useful as the ensign is engineering, not science or tactical. The ship will, effectively, be reduced to nothing but a substandard cruiser with a transferable console better employed on another ship.

This will more than likely be the case for the Exploration Refit.

I tokened my Refit on my 1ST Fed Engineer and I can token it on my other Fed Engineer if its worth it.

The Bright side of this for Cryptic would be that most on the newer players will not have either the Exploration Refit or the Galaxy X and will need to buy both vessels from the C-Store if they want to get in on the separating X coolness.

see this is why im annoyed about the whole thing, yes i want my Galaxy X to gain the full benefit of saucer separation im just not sure i want to spend 1600c on a ship i wont use for anything but the console.

not i might add that cryptic will care but, it seems a heck of a lot for a minor(?) benefit

Seeing as I own both the Gal-X & R, I also hope I can put the console from the R onto the X....

What i would like is more tactical consoles on the Galaxy X. The X is a warship upgrade yet there are only 3 tac positions spread over two crew. I like to see that upped to 5 consoles spread over 2 crew.

It's a bit buggy on how it goes about using it, though. Usually firing it off as soon as you target something. But it is possible to chain your Anti-matter Spread with your pet's. And the debuff does stack on the enemy as x2.
If Klingons had tear ducts, millions would die of dehydration from this update.

I w already bought too many ships. Do I really want to spend so much just for the separation console?

Does saucer separation really add that much of a benefit? I also have the Advanced Heavy Escort. I console from a VMAE.

There isn't enough justification for the buy if there isn't additional Boff ability access, console slots to accommodate my loss of a combat or survivability enhancing console slot from adding yet another special console, as well as a substantive improvement in combat performance when using the separation module.

Very tired of not being able to use commander level Boff abilities from all specialties on all my tier 5 ships. It's just wrong.
