This fix, when it gets implemented, will make the MVAE extremely deadly in my eyes. As a primarily KDF player for PVP, the MVAE is very nasty in the hands of a competent captain, one of the best Escorts short of a JHAS. When seperated, it becomes alot more maneuverable than it already is, which is high. It gives up some for that maneuverability and there's 3 different forms of sepration for different bonuses and penalties.

The SCI LtCdr also gives the option for more survivability or offense.

The MVAE does not have the full TAC-heavy BOFF suite like the Defiant and some other Escorts. But it strikes a balance of offense with a touch of science, provides the option of seperation, highly maneuverable, and if you have the Fleet version, 5 TAC console slots. Hard to go wrong with the MVAE. It offers more things than a 1 dimensional Escort like the Defiant that has no options with its terrible ENG & SCI BOFF slots.
