They were upgraded a little while back. Normal nova retrofit gets the standard 1.3 science ship shield mod; fleet has 1.43 like most other fleet sci ships.

I love the look of the nova too but sadly it just doesn't have place in pvp compaired to those 2 ships
Add to the fact it'll cost you 4/5 fleet modules to try regardless of you owning the C-Store T2 one or not...

I know, I still picked up a fleet version anyways. I love my little RI/nova hybrid but like I said. Anything I can do on it I can do better with a vesta or wells

Go pug in the nova and watch everyone ignore you and shot at usless vestas instead. lol

Useless Vesta? You need to find a higher quality of Vesta driver to pug with!
If you feel Keel'el's effect is well designed, please, for your own safety, be very careful around shallow pools of water.

It's good to see that even Sci Vessel pilots argue amongst themselves like all the other ship type pilots do.

Of course we do. We just use space magic instead of DPS.
