The problem with this idea is that the Graviton Deflector suits Science vessels because it provides bonuses to Science Powers.

The Neutrino and Positron Deflectors are innately more suited to Cruisers and Escorts due to the fact that they provide DEFENSIVE BONUSES. Cruisers and Escorts don't have many science boff slots, thus they will use a lot less science abilities. This is why it is better to go for the Positron Deflector (which provides additional shield hit points, healing, hull hit points, and hull healing) OR the Neutrino Deflector (which provides resistance buffs VS. SCIENCE ABILITIES).

In conclusion, changing the Aegis set to be more accurate wouldn't work because you've eliminated all but 1 types of ship that can benefit the most from its Deflector and, ultimately, its focus (DEFENSE).
