You can't equip any of the tier 5 consoles on another ship type. So the ablative hull armour generator is still only for the science based Intrepid and its variants.
For now, but this give me hope that I will one day get to put an ablative generator on my Defiant.


It'll be a long wait. They'd need to model the armour for every single ship, from every single tier and all of their potential variants. Imagine the work involved, then think about how that time could've been better spent actually making new ships instead.
This is the same reason we will only have cloaking on the Defiant and Galaxy-X.

Oh and FYI it looks like the Galaxy-X is getting the Saucer Separation ability at some point.
