The ship was free, all it required was 5 minutes (if that) out of your day. If you don't like it, don't use it. If you want to quit the game because of a ship, then quit the game. Stop whinging.
I too acquired the Breen Warship (more so because I could rather than because I wanted one). I like the bridge officer layout, but I can't say I'm overly fond of the ship, and alike you, I also found myself not handling well in STF's (though I should note here I went up against the Borg using Polaron weaponry, and I still think that was a bad idea. Talk about shooting blanks).
Still, what did I do? Come here and complain? No. I jumped back in to an older ship and continued on my merry way.
Edit: For what it's worth, I think the Chel Grett should be underpowered. They're hardly the pride of Starfleet, and the Chel Grett, as with many lock box ships is either on par, or more powerful than various fleet ships. That shouldn't be the case at all.
I run a bug with a full polaron load-out against the Borg all the time, and I eat them for breakfast, not sure why you are comparing them to shooting blanks.

What is so funny, it sounds like a pretty reasonable things to say as long as we are talking about Elite. The only way I can see never going below 98% hull is if someone is sitting outside threat range or has super low threat from low damage.
I often get killed or put down to 3% hull in my tanked crusier with 60k hull hit point at 75% shield resistance and 60% ish hull resistance from the normal torpedoes. My mines take care of HY torps. How can someone never go below 98% hull?
Surly any Escort or Breen ship would be instent killed in the same situation. As long as we are talking Elite and not normail.
No matter your build nor your gear equipped, the Borg ships and especially the gates have a way to destroy ANY kind of ship on the fly and as they see fit.
Actually, it is a good sign if you get targeted alot and destroyed often. It means you are threatening and doing damage to the enemy.
The only players who claim they never get killed in ESTF are the ones who flying failships and rarely are doing any real DPS.
Simply put, if you don't get killed, it means another player is getting killed instead. Again, your ship type and gear is irrelevant in ESTF. If the Gate decides you die, you WILL die.
the breen ship and vesta are bad at pve? thats a HILARIOUS statement. those 2 ships are the most ideally designed pve ships in the entire game.the breen ship has escort brawn with much better then escort durability thanks to stations and raw stats, and is plenty maneuverable for lining up npcs. the vesta is a sci ship that can run DHCs! apply DHCs to pve, win shortly after. theres none of the unidealness inherent in taking sci ships into pve with it.
L2P op, those 2 ships couldn't be making it any easier for you. and 1 shots happen all the time in stf's no mater what ship your in, and how skilled you are.
I just find it funny that he's defending a rainbow/skittle build by saying the ship is garbage. The usual way of thinking from a person who wrote a thread with the intent of "if you don't agree with my opinion, GTFO".
I have the breen ship on one of my toons but i havent tested it out yet... the thing that erks me about the ship is that its non tradeable even in its "BOX" state, which clearly states that and i quote "This ship is tradeable in its boxed state" if you dont want us getting a free ship and selling it on the exchange fine, but at least make it an account bound item. I have a new toon that didnt qualify to run the races that i was going to put it on, then i find that the ship is bound to characture... not pleased criptic not pleased... dont get me wrong im tankfull for the free ship, but at least let me put it on the toon i want it on. can we please fix this and make it an account bound item?
I just setup one to use a Tricobalt Mine Net..... Oh dear God that is FUN!!! I bombed a group of BoPs and shredded 2 of them... Using it on Driffen's comet was hilarious! It demolished it so fast I barely had time to watch the explosion!
