The ablative generator console comes with the VA Intrepid (level 50), which you'll have to buy it from the C-Store. Unless you're a 600 day subscriber in which case you can use the token you get when you hit Vice Admiral to claim one for free (however if you dismiss a free ship you cannot claim another one for free). If you're not a subscriber then I'd either get ready to pony up $ or start grinding dil now.

If you're getting it purely for re-making Voyager then I won't stop you.

However, do note that it's fairly useless in the actual game. It only lasts for 15 seconds with a 3 minute cooldown, and there's a small gap between dropping your shields and activating the armor, making it a risky 'emergency shield'.
Don't fall for the fake advertising: Guild Wars 2 is a WoW clone and a poor one too.

I wouldn't go as far to say useless, I would say its actually kind of a lifesaver from time to time if you have the the healing abilities ready or they are about to come off cooldown.

I'm sure there are uses, but I figured it would be good to point out it doesn't work in any way like it did in the tv series.

Agreed - though I have to admit, it's only since I started using my Bellerophon in the Fleet Action PVE's that I've really found that it comes into it's own.

Have activated it a few times in Fleet Action missions recently, when have become the focus of several enemy ship's attention. Quite enjoy flipping it on (when need it) and watching the enemies throw everything they've got at me, with no measurable effect. And, usually, by the time it drops I can (as you say) activate heals.

And still find it useful in STF's - seldom ever activated it during the mission itself, nor the 'boss' ships, but do enjoy being able to fly at close-quaters to the 'boss' ship and, as soon at it hits 1%, activating the armor so that the subsequent explosion does next to nothing to my ship.

But as others have said, other than appearance it's pretty much nothing like what we saw in the final episode of Voyager.

And I really do wish to dear god it remained active for longer.

yeah, the ablative armor is probably the most worthless console in the entire game! It definitely needs to be overhauled!

I have to argue with this, the three worst consules in the game are the two tachyon detections off both nebulas and the torpedo that is able to fire on cloaked ships.
