They don't do Speed.

34 Turn Rate in my Nova. And as a bonus it has an amazing pivot.



My Tac nova is a hell of alot of fun to fly and does pretty solid dps.
I always have a firing solution in my Nova.

I might get a Recon Vesta someday, but the Nova is actually pretty solid in the hands of a tac.

got a nova eh? sweet, make them suffer, and have plenty of sci stations along with the powerful tac. something a vesta loses out on, having less sci available, and turning significantly less.

Glad you're liking it! That said, if you approach the Vesta in sort of the same manner as you would the Fleet Vor'cha, you probably won't be disappointed. It tends to end up with lots of clickies, though. Especially when/if pets are factored heavily into your strategy. It's also tangibly less maneuverable than the RSV, so, if you like nimble you'll probably have more fun with the Nova.

[Edit]

Oh yeah, the Wells has the same rate of turn as the Nova, higher impulse modifier, and more hull and shield HP. I think it slides around a lot, though.
If you feel Keel'el's effect is well designed, please, for your own safety, be very careful around shallow pools of water.

but that speed means nothing if you dont lift bro

but seriously, the turn is nice yes, but since it cant use duel/dhc the turn that high is kinda pointless.

i vote to let novas use duel cannons! or at least the quad cannons

Dual cannons aren't the only reason to have a high turn rate. Considering the sheer number of abilites that require pointing the deflector at someone, it's probably MORE important for a science vessel to do any decent damage than an escort.

Before I make any suggestions, is the Captain Skill Tree associated with your ship accurate?

@virusdancer - What are you sorry about? I dont get it. LOL

Also no RSP? I mean for pvp I would probably want one wouldnt I?

Everything else looks real good. I guess I could bring a RSP if I am solo or pugging...team setting I would probably get away without one.
