However your analysis as interesting as it is, does have a few holes. For starters, the Chimera and Mobius/Krenn are not escorts, they are hybrid destroyers. Reasons? They can out-tank most other escorts (other than the JAS) if built properly, but they cannot out-damage most other escorts. Also you missed the Fleet Regent and Fleet Excelsior. However I do appreciate you bringing the rest of that information to the forefront.

However, now that you have stated what you actually want:

I can stop being devil's advocate and actually have an intellectual discussion with you.

You said you would want a ship that was fast and nimble like the aquarius. I can respect that, and actually approve of this idea. But if you wanted a ship like that, it would have to make similar sacrifices to what BoPs have, which is decreased console and BOff slot counts. It would also be forced to rely on hit and fade tactics like the BoPs.

Another thing you would run into is a HUGE wall of NO from the KDF community, many of whom feel strongly about fed players infringing on what is supposed to be KDF exclusive content, like carriers, cloak, and raiders. What you would be asking for is a raider, plain and simple. Now as much as I think it's at least an interesting idea, the amount of resistance you will be hitting is quite strong. Just an FYI.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
