The console, a Timeline Stabilizer, passively improves the recharge on Science bridge officer abilities. It also can be used to slow the recharge, turn rate, and flight speed of nearby enemy ships while improving the recharge, turn rate, and flight speed of your own. Mastering the ship unlocks the Improved Feedback Pulse trait, granting a stacking buff to your ship when enemies attack you while Feedback Pulse is active. They’re both solidly useful on a variety of different ships, enough incentive for captains of all types to get their hands on the ship from the anniversary event.
You can also get free specialization points just for logging in today for just a bit more incentive.
