I've been thinking about getting the Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit and I was wondering if the Ablative Generator works on other ships and if so does it have a visual component?

Thanks

If you actually took the time to read the item description in the z-store it clearly says it can only be used on that ship.

To spare you the time.

No VA Zen Shop ship consoles can be used in any other ship besides the one it come from, the only exception is the Cloaking Device as it can be used on the Defiant and the Galaxy-X ... since both ships come with it.

As the two above me have already said:

No... No C-Store VA consoles can be applied to other ships... At least I can't think of any.

However, some of the low end ships you seen in the Cryptic Store, has consoles you can apply to later ships, such as Point Defence turrets from the Thunderchild, the [Console - Universal - Enhanced Plasma Manifold] from the Oberth, and are well worth it in a lot of cases.

Yea, but if they wanted to do that (in this particular scenario), they would have to make a extra skin for every single part in the game (all the nacells, all the pylons, all the saucers... you get the pic), so its not really cost-effective.

It can be used on the Fleet Long Range Science Vessel, and yes, it has a visual component where your ship looks like it's encased in armor. Although the initialization of the armor doesn't match the show, due to technical constraints of how it is applied.

Yea, I figured it was a bit optimistic to assume I could cover my Steamrunner in Ablative armor

As someone has previously said when this was raised in another topic, the Ablative Generator would be an instant favourite if it could work on other ships.
