Yeah. . .looking at the stats for the Aquarius, I can't see why anyone would fly that thing. It's slow, doesn't turn very well for its smaller size, has a hull in the BoP range, only 6 weapon slots and a shield mod in the BoP range. . .the fleet Aquarius is somewhat better, with a decent shield modifier and a nice console layout, but that lower hull and lower engine speed definitely render it less useful.

It's like it got its stats nerfed but didn't receive anything to compensate. At least with the BoPs, they get the all-universal consoles and the battlecloak, and they're nimble and as fast as most escorts (should be faster, though).
