I have 127 people in my Fleet. Over 100 of them want the Aquarius when we get the base that far - I want one myself. The Aquarius is just a cool looking, different looking, ship. If you don't PvP or worship at the Elite STF alter it's a perfectly good ship to fly and use at VA.

Most people are just searching for something different, and the Aquarius, along with the upcoming Wells, are a couple of slightly different ships from what we usually get.

Guys guys relax. The ship appeals too some people. And I've heard it's getting a buff too 20 degrees a second turn rate, and better defense ratings. It might be a cheep alternative too the Jem Hadar Attack Ship. Even if it isn't, it won't be a bad ship, just not a superbly good ship. I'm determined too prove this thing can handle itself. Once we reach teir 4 that is.

And NO, I'm not buying it with zen, I'm buying it with EC. It's an easy 20 million EC for the thing, that's not very much.

October is upon us. Anyone got this ship? Has the stats changed?

The fleet I am member of isn't too far off starting the Tier 4 upgrade, and I'll probably purchase an Aquarius when the time comes.

It'll make a change from flying the Fleet Defiant for one, and the turn-rate improvement should make it pretty nimble - and I suspect that using the Tachyokinetic converter won't do this any harm either.

And have seen at least one Aqarius parked at ESD, so some players must have them. Haven't seen one in a Fleet Action or STF yet though.

There is no turn rate improvement going from Defiant to Aquarius. They both have a base of 17, the Aquarius got bumped to 17 and never got bumped to turn rate 20.

It has less shields, less hull, 1 less rear weapon and does not have a 5th Tac console like the Fleet Defiant.

The only thing it has over the Fleet Defiant is the BOFF layout - otherwise this ship is completely inferior in every possible way.

Sigh... Guess nothing's changed. :/

I'll stick to the Gallant. That thing actually fits into the slot where the Aquarius is supposed to go, and I think that shall be the mission pod of the USS Olympus. Not the FAILius.

Have the FAILius just to help others decide what its like. Imagine a defiant. With 1 less weapon even squishier 1 less tact slot no cloak. Try putting a normal mk X shield on yoir dwfiant and youll get a idea. It doea have good ensign universal but it doesnt make up for it. There is a few way to get this to work.

1. Increase shield/shield modifier
2. Give a damn cloak already.
3. Increase turn and weapon power alot.



Basically think of a gimp bop or half fitted defiant and you get your mk xii maco shield with 3 piece borg FAILius.



Devs: if you read this please for the love of god buff the aquarius. It supposed to be best tact. Heavy escort carrier is other ingame so i dont include it.

The Tachyokinetic converter console should help improve the turn-rate.

Also forgot to add that defiant has inertia of 70 while aquarius has 80.

Yes you could add consoles but you could do same for defiant
