LOL... Says you. The Devs said it was pretty much all sorts of ships in one and quite honestly I can dish out nearly as much DPS and far MORE Spike damage with mine than most any Escort could DREAM of accomplishing while still having much greater heals. It does suffer from a lack of Hull which with the Borg Super Torps right now is painful but aside from that it is an awesome ship.

However, the Aux cannons are currently a waste of time. Yes, they have nice stats but if you want to take advantage of beams or rear guns then you need to have those work on Aux as well. Just using a few Aux weapons and a few normal ones is a Stupid mix. Loading your aft with all mines and torps is even more foolish.
