I'm gonna compare it with the patrol escort..

Patrol escort
Boffs: 4t 3t 1e 2e 2s
consoles: 3e 4t 2s
weapons: f4 a3
hull: 31000
shield modifier 0.9
base crew 200
base turn 12
device slots 2
abilities: +15 power to weapons, can use cannons

Pretty standard Escort ship, a little better at Eng than most.

Fleet Patrol Escort
Boffs: 4t 3t 2e 2s 1u
consoles: 4e4t2s
weapons: f4a3
hull: 34100
shield modifier .99
base crew 200
base turn 16
device slots 2
abilities: +15 w power, cannons
requires fleet SY 1

a not-quite-standard Fleet upgrade. it has the normal +10% boost to shields and hull, and an extra (Eng)console slot. Non-standard features: the 1E station was converted to a 1U station, it gives flexibility, but not more powers. Also, unless my numbers are wrong, it has a higher base turn.

Aquarius Destroyer
Boffs: 4t 3t 2e 2u 1u
consoles: 3e 4t 2s
weapons: f4 a2
hull: 24000
shield modifier .66
base crew 50
base turn 16
device slots 2
abilities: +15 w power, cannons
requires fleet SY 4

Higher base turn, and universal slots. In all other ways it's pretty much inferior. It has 3/4 the hull, and less than 3/4 the shields, it also has one less weapon. Also it has a pitiful number of crew... 50???

Fleet Aquarius Destroyer
Boffs: 4t 3t 2e 2u 1u
consoles: 4e 4t 2s
weapons: f4 a2
hull: 26400
shield modifier .72
base crew 50
base turn 16
device slots 2
abilities: +15 w power, cannons
requires fleet SY 4

This is a standard fleet upgrade. +1 console, +10% hull and shields, but upgrading crap doesn't make it good.
HAIL HYDRA!
