im thinking of a slot added to all ships to do the following -
add extra weapon slots to forward or aft or both
add 1 or 2 more hanger slots
upgrade boff stations
add science, tactical, or engineer console slots
increase hull or shield points
u can figure our any more
note these are not part of the ship console system it a new side system. this slot is made to improve the ship directly and if u remove it the item is gone for good.
