Kinda sucks that it had such a PR problem due to the incorrect shield mod/hull info text.
Pardon the impending noob question, but what does the Fleet Saber do that much better than the Fleet Patrol? I don't see where it's got a clearly defined advantage over the Patrol. (I don't have both ships so I can't go apples-to-apples myself, but looking at their stats they look neck and neck.)

Thanks for your time.
