The thing that the fleet Norgh gives you is an extra Lt. Commander universal slot instead of a Lieutenant slot. Don't get me wrong; you can do a lot with an extra Lt. Commander level power - I'd certainly trade that over an extra ensign any day. But with the Norgh you pay a very heavy price in terms of shields and hull. Frankly I don't think it's a trade I would be willing to make as BoPs are pretty crunchy as it is. I wouldn't mind seeing a Fleet Norgh build that lets you take advantage of this, if anyone can figure out one, but offhand I can't think of anything that would be worth giving up a third of your hull and a fifth of your shields for, and remember that this is in comparison to a free ship and the Fleet Norgh is a paid ship.
The Fleet Hoh'sus has an improvement in stats over the Hegh'Ta and also has a bonus tac console, so if you are using a BoP as a tactical ship then it is a decent buy. And though it's firepower is not quite as high as a Qin it does have that awesomely high turn rate.
I would like to see the stats for the Norgh beefed up and it is possible that PWE may do this. Likewise I feel that the K'T'Ingas need beefing up as do the Somraws, and the Scourge could use a small tweak of improvement.
Frankly if the K'T'Inga retrofit stats were simply identical to the Vor'Cha I probably would get one because I love how it looks. But considering how badly it performs compared to a Vor'Cha I won't be bothering. The same idea applies with the Norgh, although the Boff layout change at least gives you some kind of reason to buy one. But I might end up getting the Fleet Hoh'Sus. It is not #1 on my list but it is at least on it.
