Sensor Analysis fully-stacked is equal to about five consoles. The better your base build (i.e. the more damage bonuses you can eek out from various sources), the lower the benefit you get from an additional console, but SA is always consistently awesome.
Sensor Analyst will reach the maximum buff 33.3% over a period of 60 seconds and can add some nice damage to the Science version of the Bortasqu over time.

Has for Sensor Analyst being better than 5 Tactical consoles Iím, Iíd have to say no on that.

Now that we have +28% Very Rare Mk XI and Rare Mk XII Tactical consoles stacking 5 together will be quite powerful and itís an instance damage bonus that requires no waiting to get the maximum effect.

The Science Bortasqu will be able to slot 4 +28% Tactical consoles and will have the benefit of Sensor Analyst but you have to remember that Sensor Analyst needs a full 60 seconds to reach its maximum damage buff and itís limited to 1 target and the buff is lost once that target is lost or destroyed.

Speaking only on pure sustained damage I do not believe that anything could out do 5 +28% Tactical consoles.

Still having 4 +28% Tactical consoles and Sensor Analyst is nothing to scoff at.

Note: The tac console only boosts base weapon damage, so the total effect is much less than 26%.

And science vessels normally only have 6 weapon slots (a 25% dmg reduction at least) that offsets the 33% increase.

It gives +3.3% damage (all types!) per second up to +33%.
Hmm, never noticed that, ty.
I'll have to look for it more closely.

Are those the ones that open due to buying the new DOff expansion?

You don't need the new DOs to do the chain and you pick up the first one in Beta Ursa sector, Negociate for rare Commodoties. you need some of the Gamma Quadrant commodoties to complete it.
Just started them myself, don't know about the other 3...yet.

Roach,

You can also buy them in exchange or do fleet actions (heard that, not confirmed). Depending on console type, they are in between few hundred thousands and tens of millions (10-20 depending on luck) for neutronium, phaser and disrupter.

Do tactical consoles effect the damage output of the autocannon?
