does this seem stupidly powerful to anyone else ? lol

It looks so AWESOME! AND its way overpowered.

Oh wait, Tier 4 ship. Why in heavens name would they still bring out Tier 4 ships? whats the logic in doing that? sigh.

another nice looking escort gone to waste.
Sigh

nono , its VA ship , you need a tier 4 shipyard to create it :cool:

That's not OP...that's terrible. :confused:

4 front, 2 aft slots means you can compare this more to a science-escort hybrid than an actual escort. Okay, so what two ships are closest in comparison?

You can replicate the same stations as the new fleet escort, since the console slots are identical anyway. Okay...but it has ~4k less hull and .05 less shield modifier. Not bad, per se, but the fleet escort was already the lowest of the fleet escort refits, anyway. However, if you toss that universal LT station to another engi slot, you could have a tanky escort. Not sure how the -.27 modifier compared to the patrol escort would, though, even if the patrol has a LT/Ens potential for engineering. So what about science?

That would be the fleet science vessel refit, the crazy Nova. I think the Nova might deal more dps than the Aquarius, tbh. 3/3 weaponry and no tac comm station, but a comm science station might make up wonderfully. Stats-wise, the Nova has ~1k more hull, but a nice .39 extra shield modifier, not to mention built-in target subsystem powers. The Nova's consoles are 3/3/4, as opposed to the Aq's 4/4/2, but I'd say the Aq has the advantage due to the universals. So, oddly enough, the Nova might deal more damage, but the Aq can tank more...maybe. :P

OP? Nah, but quirky as hell.

note: its called a "destroyer" not an escort. so its not really an escort as far as the game is concerened, but it is similar.

This looks quite cool, I kind of suspected this'd turn into a "I can't believe it's not a BoP".

lianthelia 07-07-2012 10:44 AM

Honestly, is there really much of a point to it? Looks like its trying to be a fed version of a BoP but only have a lt and ensign universal slots and thats it. Quite frankly it doesn't seem like its worth having...looks inferior in almost every way to all of the other fleet escorts.

Seconded.

The Crew, Hull and Shield values are considerably less than the Fleet Patrol Escort, with the same Turn Rate and Speed. And it only has two Aft Weapon slots.

If it had three aft weapon slots, and/or the LTCom Tac and Universal LT slots were swapped around It'd be worth going for. As it is, it's sorta pointless.

Ideally, I really want to be able to slot an Escort with:

Commander Tactical
Lieutenant Commander Science
Lieutenant Tactical
Lieutenant Engineer
Ensign Engineer


OR

Commander Tactical
Lieutenant Commander Engineer
Lieutenant Tactical
Lieutenant Science
Ensign Science


OR

Commander Tactical
Lieutenant Commander Engineer
Lieutenant Commander Science
Lieutenant Tactical

...sadly, none of those is currently possible. But I'm holding out in hope for a "Fleet Multi Vector Advanced Escort Refit" that'll allow the first one, or a "Fleet Heavy Escort Carrier Refit" that'll allow the second! :D

Seriously who would take this 'thing'? Lol. Such a waste of nice ships.

rrincy 07-07-2012 12:20 PM

I still think this could be pretty damn nasty if equipped right to be honest , the consoles and boffs are pretty unusual for a federation ship
