Edited - don't know why, but I was thinking of the Galaxy class. WRONG!!
Personal T6 Ship Wishlist:

Nova/Rhode Island class with Hybrid Pilot BOFF seat.

That is all. (guess this wasn't really a 'list' after all!)

It has a pretty awesome layout and would make for a not-shabby healer. Lacks a little in the Sci but it can actually turn, must be those four nacelles (more nacelles = better than).

vids and guides and stuff

I'm mising some good assault cruiser in my collection. I do not want to fly Excelsior or Sovereign...so looking for other offensive alternatives...

I'm a little afraid of the shields tho. Need someone who has it, to write down the hps / regen of the shields

Good ship. Assault Cruiser stats upgraded to fleet standards, the 3rd sci console comes in handy and with a turn rate of 8 it's comparable to an Excelsior. It's an Assault Cruiser +1.5.

Nothing wrong with its shields. Thanks to being the fleet version of a T3 ships it gets its bonus shield capacity like all the other non-T5 fleet ships.

I don't think so. I find it hard to justify the cost. In the broad picture is simply weak for it's cost. I would love to buy it, but don't won't to buy a gimped ship.

Now let me compare this ship for 2000 to regent for 2500. The tankiness of both ships is the same, but regent will eventually get the fleet version that outclasses the fleet heavy cruiser retrofit in every way except the turn rate.

Now if the fleet heavy cruiser retrofit had 9 or 10 turn rate and 35-40 inertia (it's small mass does not justify the 30 inertia) it would be interesting alternative.

Oh well. Why must all good looking fed ships have crap stats It's almost like someone has biass for certain ships
