The Fleet Science Vessel Retrofit does have something which few other sci ships have - a Lt. Com. tactical slot. The other ships that have that are those with universal Lt. Com. slots, the Wells, Vesta, and Orb Weaver, and it's less expensive than those ships. Does its increased offensive options make up for its lower hull and shields compared to a Fleet Deep Space Science Vessel? That's an open question.

The non-fleet Science Vessel Retrofit, however, just sucks. It doesn't get the Lt. Com. tactical slot and uses the same layout as the Recon Science Vessel while having less hull and shields for no apparent reason.
