It wasn't on his list, but yes, I'd second this. It's basically an Armitage with slightly worse hull, better Tac (LtC Tac slot and no wasted Ensign), slightly worse Eng (no LtC Eng), and no hangar. Basically fewer frills, but just as reliable.
Also its Maelstrom Skin looks really boss. If you didn't own it already you can get it on the Fleet version.
