Yeah, it one of those moments where you realize something while you talk about it. I just didn't do a good job displaying that.

As it is, your ship there kind of has the same problems that the Aquarius has, in that it's just a neutered version of something we already have (the Defiant). The low hull with high speed/maneuverability is a must for this hypothetical ship.
Also when I though of the turn rate, I was thinking it as a escort, science ship hybrid. So it has a low turn rate on par with other escorts around it's tier but I can see it bumped to 16-17. As for reduced hull, its a mixed bag. Boosted shields or mull hull on a science-y stealth escort?
