Bought the new Advanced Escort variant (Hephaestus) and it appears to be severely bugged.
The ship is continuously running EPS Power Transfer III in a loop. It's degraded performance to the point that you cannot navigate the ship, much less use any other abilities with any sort of consistency. Firing weapons, turning, simply attempting to accelerate are all virtually impossible at this time.
Oddly enough, it worked fine last night when I bought the variant from the C-Store and reconfigured my ship. Logged in today, and it's like it was assimilated.
