If you can afford it, Wells.
If not get Vesta 3 pack (unlocked on all characters unlike Wells) and it's not that far off from the Wells.
Vesta is fun on its own though (hangar bay, free dual cannons that run on aux power, impenetrable shield bubble ability)

at the momenti the temporal science vessel is the best pure science ship for fed and kdf (I do not know about romulans). The strong point:

turn rate,
shield modifier
boffs layout


Another good ship is the vesta, but I do not use it and if I remember is not a pure science vessel but a carrier hybrid.

If you are looking for Science for the sake of Science, most of the ships are pretty ok, depending on your set-up. If you want to be a DPS-Monger go Vesta Line.

If you can afford a Wells totally go for it.

I dabble with various ones. I like Science ships they are all a lot of fun.

don't feel obligated simply because you have a sciene captain to get a science ship. you get basically no synergy out of this combination and to have an effective build you need considerable knowledge about ship building.

it is a sad fact, that the other 2 classes have better synergy with science ships.

however if you are determend to get a science ship i'd suggest the vesta, though you should look into the option of getting a science heavy escort, like the temporal destroyer, breen cruiser, basically anything with 3 or more science boff ability slots.

Absolutely the Fleet Nova.

My drop-dead favorite ship, and whilst I do own the Vesta pack, I still find myself in the Fleet Nova more often as she is a versatile, and often overlooked, little ship. As nimble as many escorts, a Lt-Cmdr Tac slot grants some very nice tactical-focused options, her sci stations make her versatile in that area too, she has better hull strength than the Vesta and with the right shields/consoles she can take a good pounding and still fight back.

I've said it before and will say so again - regardless of the new, shiny, ships & their special consoles/abilities, the Fleet Nova is the one ship that I never leave 'in mothballs' for very long on the few occasions that I do. It's just too much fun to fly.

It is a good ship, and a cheap sci vessel and maybe even the best boff setup on a fleet science vessel you can get. But a downgrade from the wells or vesta when looking at the stats.

whatever someone prefers personally is out of the equation, after all tastes differ. On paper the wells and the vesta are better.

although i have to admit, that the shield mod on the nova is somewhat much higher than indicated in the description.

I do not agree.
Most of player when playing sto think only about their dps... but all in all when you play in a team everything changes. A specialized scientist can multiply the dps of every teammate debuffing/controlling the opponent or healing teammates and also managing the agro (using the great shield and good hul regen rate and the threat scaling consoles... other sci abilities can help a lot).

Think about what escorts can do (how devasting can be an alpha strike) if your scentist at the same time debuff your opponent and get the agro.
