Shuttle Wars to the Rescue? But we have to do it on Tribble, otherwise dstahl is tricking us into buying this ship just to "test it", and he has already won.

but mabye there is an easier way (but it requires some math understanding)
• 1 Ensign Tactical Power + 1 Ensign Engineering Power +2 Ensign Science Powers +1 Lieutenant Science Power < 1 Ensign Tactical Power + 1 Ensign Engineering Power +2 Ensign Science Power +2 Lt. Science Powers.
• Subtract 1 Ensign Tactical Power + 1 Ensign Engineering Power +2 Ensign Science Powers +1 Lieutenant Science Power from both sides, and you get
• 0 < 1 Lieutenant Science Power.
• Divide by Lieutenant Science Power (Assuming Lt.Science Power > 0)
• 0 < 1.

Now I've simplified the problem. We just have to prove that a Lt.Science Power is more than 0. This would allow us to take two regular Tier 2 Novas and one ship uses no powers, and the other a single Lt.Science Power.
