In addition to the base ship, each Tier 6 starship comes equipped with the Supplemental Subsystems universal console. This will provide a temporary boost to your starship’s maximum subsystem power levels when activated. Furthermore, incoming energy weapon attacks damage the attacker and a minor portion of the attacker’s subsystem power is leeched back to you. Finally, players will gain a Subsystem Overload Counter whenever hit with an energy attack and after obtaining 20 counters a devastating pulse of energy is emitted.

The Supplemental Subsystems universal console can only be equipped on Starfleet Dreadnought Cruisers, Advanced Warbirds or Siege Destroyers in any console slot. Additionally, the console provides a passive bonus to all subsystem power levels.

Not only do these new starships come with powerful consoles, but each has special abilities:
