The ship has class, it's small, it's nimble and it has some teeth.

How do you gear her and what is her purpose in arenas in your opinion?

When I'm done with Nukara rep, though, I'm going back to the Nova. It's fast, has good tac capability, and can still put out the science really well.
I am a Sci Captain so after reading this thread, I picked up a Fleet Nova and donned it with Fleet/Mk XII gear and jumped into PvP. Used the Transphasics torp build with no cheese other than GW3 and Scramble Sensors. After several matches Thursday evening, I can confidently say this is now my main ship.

I have a Wells and the Vesta 3 Pack but all I can say is the Fleet Nova is sick.

Can't believe I never tested it at least before.

I've said it many times, in many threads, my Fleet Rhode Island is the one ship I can't leave for long. The Vesta is better, but I find the Fleet Nova more fun to fly.

Hmm....although I already have a Wells on my main sci character, this thread is making me wonder about getting a fleet Nova to test out. What do you all think? Worth a shot, even if I have the Wells?

Definitely - I have the Wells too, but still find my Fleet Nova more fun to fly.

Yes. You'll enjoy the turn rate at the very least.

Particuarly if you fit one of the new Dil mine armor consoles with the turn rate buff!

Seriously - nice armor in itself, and she turns like some of the better escorts now!

I set up my engie in the fleet Nova as a drain build. I'm actually killing ppl 1vs1 with my single cannons lulz. Very tanky with the defense and shield mod and being an engineer. Great Control support for escort teammates.

1 capnhold I was chasing a science wells all around the map as his only chance was to run lol. I haven't had this much fun pugging pvp since before LoR.

Who says engineers are useless lol

Nice...I have the Tachyokinetic Converter and a RCS Accelerator and this thing turns on a dime with barely any drift. I get the proper firing solution ahead of the opponent almost all the time. I haven't done my usual tweaking yet so in time I hope to improve my current build.

It's like you roll up on a Klingon carrier in this little tiny ship all demure and stuff...switch to beast mode and you start flying rings around them and hitting them from every angle with every manner ordinance and BO abilities before they know what hit them. LOL

Agreed.

Although this doesn't really apply to PvP, I have had a great time on many occasions appearing in STF's/Fleet Alerts etc in my little, and VERY understated, Fleet Rhode Island and then taken pleasure in smacking enemy ships all over the place and showing EXACTLY what she is capable of!

Sorry - not PvP related, I know - but nonethess, probably one of the most underestimated ships in the game.
