When the new T6 Temporal Science Vessel and Temporal Destroyer came out (update to the Wells and Mobius), new updated Manheim and Tipler consoles were released. Those new consoles are usable on any ship now. The old consoles were retroactively opened up so the old ones can now be used on any ship.
One of the things that made the 26th century temporal ships unique were that they were the only ships that could use those consoles. Was this change intended? Did they really want to open up those consoles to use anywhere?
Seems to me those ships just lost most of their magic. They are now just console sources, like every other ship out there.
