In other words, for an escort the ship has no flaws. Other ships at the very least tend to trade defensive stats for offense or turn rate etc. In this case... it's an OP ship and the whole community knows it.

It may have a higher shield rating but has only 1 sci slot, so your not going to get some HUGE shield cap number on a bug,,,secondly,,the 2 universal slots are only LT,,with an ens eng,,,,then commander and LT comm tac slots,,,it has higher hull because it cannot create a large shield cap,,,and what is the point in a large shield cap as a tac captain anyway? You more than likely dont have the sci slots to heal such a large cap, on my jem bug i dont even use my sci slot for a shield boost,,i stick my rom zero point console in it,,and run nothing but hull heals on Boff buffs.

The 5 tac slots is not OP,,,i used to think that would make some huge difference,,,,its nice yes, but its not some ungodly weapon power, if you run into people who know what they are doing and have the right setup even with a jem bug with 5 mark XII purple mags in tac slots you will have problems.
