It will be the most offensively oriented Sci ship for sure, but there's no way it will have anything close to a fully buffed alpha strike from an escort.

Then again, I'm thinking of a sci/sci. If a tac was in it, it would be higher, but still not escort high. I think the difference between CRF3 + APO1 + APD1 + 4 DHC's vs. CRF2 + APD1 + 3 DHC's (or APO1 + CRF1 + APD1 + 3 DHC's) can't be overlooked. Any way you slice it, the escort is going to have substantially more spike potential.

However, it will still be a rival for best ship in the game, mainly because of its versatility.
It has all the ability to completely and utter negate the alpha strike potential in addition to huge defense reserves to come back fighting. And when it does, DHC + Danubes + SS + VM + FBP + SNB will obliterate any opponent. But, I guess we will just have to wait and keep an eye on the Q's and forum for potential problems.

The problem is not really just this ship...

One needs to see the bigger picture.

5x TAC Console cloaking defiants + Armitage (Danubes) + Atrox (Danubes) + MVAM (pets) + Vesta (Danubes)

See the problem now?
