The Kar'fi is easier to kill than many escorts so they often don't get the opportunity to reach their full damage potential. Hell, the Vo'quv BoPs are harder to kill than a Kar'fi.

Im not the one that flies it, but it has something like 16k Shields and 46k hull. We've had good results so far with our team, it hasnt even died yet.

16K? Are you sure? My Star Cruiser only has 12+K...that just does not seem right. I even have the +35% Engineering Consol for my shields to boost it from a regular 9K to 12K

Its right... it is a sci ship. Both carriers get sci shielding.

You want 16k in a cruiser fly a nebula.

Shields and hull are misleading on a carrier because the turn rate is so low. An extra 5k shields doesn't really matter if you're only beating on one facing.

Durr...yeah, that's right. Was not thinking about it being a "Science" ship, heh. That would explain things a bit then.

A generous use of distribute shield power can still somewhat mitigate this. (But distributing is slow, an escort does cetainly turn faster then the shields distribute their power.)

Yes true - along with resists. Carriers are highly vulnerable to focus fire though.
