Well I have narrowed it down to 2 ships.

Fleet Excelsior or Fleet Assault Cruiser.

We have already gone over the 2 ships retrofit versions pretty thoroughly so for a quick recap, what are the main differences between these 2 ships and which would be a better choice?

Fleet Excelsior: Better turn, better inertia, Ens Eng instead of Tac, Lt. Sci instead of Uni, +5 Weps/+5 Engines, T3 Shipyard, built in Transwarps.

Fleet Regent: Less turn, worse inertia, Ens Tac instead of Eng, Lt. Uni instead of Sci, +10 Weps/+0 Engines, T5 Shipyard.

I believe the Fleet Regent can also use the Regent's console, but I'm not sure of that. Basically it comes down to the Regent has more theoretical damage capacity while the Excelsior has more agility so it can bring weapons to bear more easily. If you do get the Excelsior make sure you get the C-Store version first to get the discount and the account unlock.

So basically either extra power or maneuverability. Ill probably get the Excelsior since its cheaper and basically does the same stuff besides that extra fire power.
