Now, we have been debating whether we should buy the Fleet Patrol Escort, or the Fleet Aquarius Destroyer. I know the Patrol is better, but we are Odyssey fans and would love the destroyer just for the novelty of it. We already have Phase quad canons, but would be happy if we could get more. Does the Aquarius come with Quad Canons? Does it come with anything? Is it good or bad? Any reccomendations anybody?

Thank You.

Anything from the Fleet Shipyard are just basic ships with no added special abilities. You just get the look of the ship and a special material for the Fleet ship with added bonuses to hull, shields, and an extra console. You should be able to put Quad Cannons on the Aquarius, but actual testing of the ship will be in a few months since it from a Tier 4 Shipyard. Quad Cannons should be available from reclaiming the Sao Paulo and dismissing it over and over again or available from the Dilithium Store like the Spiral Wave Disruptor from the Galor class.

Short answer? No.

Long answer? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

It's basically a Bird of Prey, but weaker, at Tier V. In other words, worthless.

Its silly that the non-fleet version of this ship has to be unlocked at Tier 4. For a little more, might as well just get the fleet version since its the same Tier anyway.

I wouldn't mind getting the Aquarius, even if its just for roleplaying purposes keeping with the theme of my Odyssey, but Tier 4....sigh...

That method was used to get the blue phasers off of the TOS Enterprise ship. Also, the devs are likely to put the Quad Cannons on the Dilithium Store and only allow people that have bought the ship for it.

Unless the Aquarius comes with a super ability or console I am not aware of, it is mostly a joke buy. I think you may have better luck tossing eggs at ships than to use the fragile Aquarius.
@RogueEnterprise: "Interesting take on the Kobiyashi Maru test"
@Evil70th: "Despite starting out a little slow it picks up quite rapidly and becomes a roller coaster ride of a mission with some great twists and turns."
@ashtaku: "Absolutely top-notch. Innovative writing, impeccable set design, fun from start to finish."

My recommendation is to completely avoid this ship unless you have so much money to toss at this game that you don't mind wasting 20 US $ on a ship that is completely terrible in every way.

The Aquarius is meant to be the equivalent of the Bird of Prey, and utterly fails at this. Every other escort in the game is better than this.

Honestly I have to ask what where they thinking?
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

Making the people who wanted to fly their Oddy's pet shut up, making people who wanted a Fed BoP shut up, and making Klingons who complained about a potential Fed BoP shut up. Everyone wins (except the poor fool who actually buys this thing).
