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!
