For PvE it kinda does not matter. Take whatever ship you like visually and enjoy it.
Since I am only a point and click player I do like a ship that can make me useful to the team in Elite Stf. I have done over 2000 of them so the game plan is down - but a good ship always helps. I have used the Oddy for my other Eng Fed side in the past but find it's turn rate so bad when coming from my KDF ships.
