I don't see the trade-off this ship makes. Hopefully the stats are preliminary and testing can change them to something reasonable. But man, this isn't _actually_ rocket science, making balanced stats is not that hard if you have so many ships to compare to.
The 3000 more base hull is negligible. Trading one console slot for another is also negligible, as both would probably be used for Pay2Win consoles. 5 points more base turn is a plus, but on a ship that's already so agile it won't make as big a difference as people think. The impulse modifier... meh.

It's another .5 quality ship... isn't nearly as OP as folks are suggesting.
