The Aquarius is basically a "failed" version of a Bird of Prey. It's hull and shield modifiers are super weak and there are much much better options of escorts than this ship. It's a full sized ship so it can't be used for the Vault. Adding the turn rate would help, but I would totally like if the cloaking console worked for the Aquarius, had more durability, or had a Commander/Lt Commander Universal instead of the current one.

QFT,as is the Aquarius is the weakest T5/T6 ship in the game afaik. I'd like to have one as a toy for PVE/STF playing but 20$ for a ship that can't PVP won't ever come out of my pocket.

Why would you do that?

Look at the stats ... it 4/2 weapons meaning is a T4 ship, it have a worst turning rate that the Tactical Escort, it have less hull and shields that the T4 Tactical Escort were the only place were its better its having 2 Universal Bridge Slots and two more consoles (one tactical and one engineering).

You better off with the Tactical Escort Retrofit ... and no, adding the ability for the Aquarius to Cloak would solve nothing because its not a Battlecloak and not only Fed should never have a Battlecloak but also Birds-of-Prey/Raiders have at least a turn rate of 21, the Aquarius have a turn rate of 16.

I have no idea what were they thinking when they made those stats for the Aquarius, requiring a Shipyard IV to build what is nothing but a T4 ship is just adding insult to injury.

I'm guessing the Aquaris is there for anyone who is desperate for the -auxiliary craft- of the odessy,

If the stats are as poor as they appear then of course no one will go for it except people who want it for some odd reason.

In some ways the boff layout give it a ship with a touch of versatility, but a master of none. (totally against any idea of cloaking it too)

The earliest anyone can get a tier 4 shipyard is early october. Considering that season 6 came out July 12 and it takes 67 days to get 100k XP by doing 1500 XP each day by doing 2 military projects a day and over 2 weeks of stalled military XP since you can't do military projects when upgrading. Therefore, people can just base their opinions of it on the listed stats and not by actually playing them.

People that want to play the Aquarius will do it because of its look rather than how good their stats are.

Does not change the fact its pretty much a T4 ship, also its cost is 200,000 Fleet Credits/20,000 Fleet Credits + 4 Ship Modules.

Its not a T5/6 ship, then again being a Auxiliary craft it shouldn't been one yet its price is right up with the C-Shop ships.

I have someone in fleet, and extremely experienced PvP player, who insists that the Fleet Aquarius Destroyer (the one we're talking about, right?) is going to be the best ship in the game. Looks paper-thin and weak to me, but hey, I'm just a newbie, really. Interesting to see, though, I'm apparently not the only one with some misgivings about it.
