I guess you managed to miss this, seeing as it was a few posts above yours.

I'll post it again, maybe it will start to sink into people's heads.

4) Hegh'ta completely universal BOFF stations including Commander & Lt Commander vs. Aquarius with Uni Lt & Ensign.
5) Hegh'ta 120k dilithium or free choice at level up vs. Aquarius at 2K Z points and T4 Fleet Shipyard.

The Aquarius is a Hegh'ta with no battle cloak and no special ability at all with even less shields than the Hegh'ta and less turn rate than a Defiant - much less a Hegh'ta.

Enhanced battle cloak, which grants both an offense bonus as well as a defense tool to compensate for poor survivability is no where to be found on this ship, nor is any equivalent ability of comparable power.

The design of this ship fails on multiple levels, on top of that it costs 2k Z points for ONE character and requires a T4 Fleet ship yard!

To make this ship even remotely usable?

It's pointless now.

Take another look, and compare it to the Hegh'ta.

Hint: Look for red, look for bold.

Fleet Hoh'sus Bird Of Prey

Commander - Uni
Lt Commander - Uni
Lieutenant - Uni
Lieutenant - Uni

Engineering: 3
Tactical: 4
Science: 3

Fore: 4
Aft: 2

Turn: 21
Hull: 24750
Crew: 75
Device Slots: 2
Shield Mod: 0.88

In case you were counting, that's 10 console slots and a higher shield mod than the Hegh'ta.
