Fleet Patrol will cost you 20k fleet credits & 4 fleet mods, so $20.
I love my Fleet Tac & Hec the most, look wise. The Hec with Thunderchild/Armitage/Akira skin combo looks amazing, although it's costly if you haven't bought the other Z store ships (It's in my sig). The Fleet Tac with the Sao Paulo skin is equally sexy.
The Bug wins out over everything simply because it has a good solid layout with solid stats & a crazy 20 turn rate that puts it ahead of the great majority of escorts in the game. While it's an amazing ship for PVP it's overkill for PVE & you might actually like something with a different layout for your day to day NPC slaughter.
So far my favourite layout on an Escort comes from the Temporal destroyer. Its flexible Lt Com is nice, and 4 science consoles gives you a lot of options. It's not the best looking ship, but it's not unpleasant either.
