so there is basically 3 threads that ask all 3 diff ships to be nerfed....
sci: 10k hull, lower shields, only flys straight, can only use turrets.
escort: max 2 cannons, lower cannon damage, even lower shields, easy to blow up
cruiser: very slow impulse speed, weak to debuffs and torpedos
Science ships have too much turn-rate, they are not escorts, nor are they cruisers and should be the slowest ships, as they are weighed down by science equipment... Like positron scanners, gas emitters, and dual chroniton infused plasma relays.
So the only option is to reduce the turnrate of science vessels to around 0.5 to 1.5.
They also have far too much hull, they should have a maxium of 10k hull.
