The Fleet Recon Science Vessel's edge in turn rate is still one of those quality of life things that's nice to have over the Vesta. Excepting the Nebula, though, there's not really a fleet science ship with a turn rate less than or equal to the Vesta's that is worth using over the Vesta.

The Nova has a higher turn rate and shield mod (added when they updated a bunch of the squishier Fleet ships stats) over the Vesta for a less flexible boff layout and about 400 less base hull hp. It's a great little ship, and probably the perfect Sci Ship for anyone wanting a Sci ship with the turn rate of the Wells without laying out the EC/cash for one.
If you feel Keel'el's effect is well designed, please, for your own safety, be very careful around shallow pools of water.
