It gives a 20% reduction in energy damage to shields for about 10 seconds and stops bleed through, this affects all your teammates.
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.

Note, as per tooltip on them: Stops normal bleedthrough, as in only normal fire. Transphasics and the Borg uber-torps cut through your hull all the same with this up.

The ship itself is incredibly ugly - looks very much like a kitbash - but the console is amazing, or at least so it seems to me.

Worth $25 though? No way. Maybe it will go on sale again...

Incredibly ugly or not, I LOVE this ship!

It's now the primary ship of my main toon (which is a TAC). Small but incredibly tough and it puts out A LOT of damage (3 MK XII phaser DHCs and a MK XII Quantum Torp up front / 2 Mk XII Phaser turrets and the Kinetic Cutting beam Aft) . It's replaced the Armitage (though I do miss those Peregrines).

It was also a great buy at $10 from Steam (which was the sale price). Best 10 bucks I've spent in a long time.

I've flown this as an Eng and it's pretty tanky! I might go back to this from my Vesta Class soon as I miss the 4 forward weapons slot. And the turn rate.

Yeah, this is the Escort to beat for tankiness, so far the only thing that might beat it in that category is the Fleet version of the Armitage. My Sci is staying with the Vesta, but my Eng is Steamrunner all the way. The Fed Tac I'm leveling will probably go into it once it hits 50 (stalled leveling due to the Repuation System taking up so much time on my level 50 toons).

Personally I feel the Deflector barely hangs low enough, all the times I oogled it in game I see like a fourth of it above saucer level.
Sheez, it got no visible impulse engine ports the ST magazine diagrams show where the impulse engine is located though >.>

Yeah, although I had to download STO again through Steam to "trick" it into letting me get the code you put in for the unlock, I've heard there's a way around this but it was no big deal to be honest.

My own feelings on the ship are that it's very capable, nice and tough, and as far as the debate over where the impulse engines go, we never saw them on screen and the one's we did see were low-rez renders intended to be background ships, so any depiction of them will involve some degree of artistic license, just like how the Miranda got a mini deflector atop the torp launcher on the rollbar.

I'm nit bothered about the gfx

Just don't want to pay for something and not be able to use it
