Just read a tweet from al rivera that a fix for fleet ships was coming out... Maybe Aquarius get a buff or two please. Just turn and shields at least.

I personally think that the Bridge officers and consoles are fine imo; maybe swap one of the engineer for tactical so it makes 5 like the defiant. The cloak I don't think is necessary because that is one thing that makes the defiant unique compared to other fed ships.

I would propose - Hull: 30,000 - shield mod: 0.9 - turn rate:20

Same or slightly lower shields than other fleet escorts (that being 0.99), lower hull than all other fleet escorts, but makes up for it with the 20 turn rate.
The Armitage heavy escort carrier is supposed too be the next gen of escorts, not the Aquarius. As for our little failure, amp up the speed, make the lt.commander a uni, and then give it an inate mask energy signature. It's not a cloak then, much easier too detect, and it's not a full on BoP either. It'll be like a lighter, less stealthy, less firepower Defiant-R, advantages being uni Boff spots and it's faster.

The Armitage is a updates akira class. It's not the next gen escort. It is what the regent to the odyssey. The akira/sovereign are both great ships and viable for everything, but needed a update to keep up with upcoming ships like the ody/vesta (and what should be the aquarius).

Now I am in Korea right now and do not have access to the game but stowiki and sto refer to the armitage as "other class" I am not sure though 100%. So please correct me if I am wrong.

Now if you are referring to Jaegers akira class that shoots 2 quadrillion torps in every direction and solo's the whole borh fleet and has a blackhole i.side that fits a infinite source of peregines (end sarcasm). Then maybe I would say that is the future of escorts, but his ideas.are overpowered and a verge of insanity. I guess thats why the show nerfed his idea to be more managable and fit the trek theme.

Besides isn't the prometheus the future as it was still expiremental while the akira and defiant were be mass-produced?

@Insanerandomnes: I would like to stand corrected I was told via e-mail that the armitage now falls under escort as it should. I still stand by statement that it is a updated akira much like the regent is to sovereign.

Sorry and thank you.
