I want one just to make people rage when I out DPS them in it.

That's worth 20mil in fleet modules alone.
I once again match my character. Behold the power of PINK!

I kinda want to PUG with a sci on STFs for kicks.

But its not that hard to out DPS with what is a escort, you are pretty much set since Dual Cannons and also a Tac Cmdr station.

But why bother? only thing the Fleet version gives is ... one more Eng console slot and about 10% more hull and shields, you dont get more DPS with it, just survivability ... unless its FC cost since non-fleet is 200k as fleet is 20k + 4 modules.

Seems to me that the Aquarius has all of the negatives, but none of the positives of the b'rel......

This ship is so tiny when I fought one in pvp I couldn't tell where it was facing.

In my opinion they should simply buff its turnrate to 20 and impulse mod to .22 (which are on par with the super op ship known as jhas) instead of making it another copy of an existing escort.

the fleet aquarius needs 1 thing

a turn rate of 20

it doesnt make much sense that it only turns as well as the bigger defient, and the MUCH larger saber. the lower hitpoints would actually be fairly balanced then. it would be like what the bug should be, but isnt. it loses a weapon slot, hitpoints, but gains mad turn and some universals, it would be a nice change of pace, a ship with advantages and disadvantages, instead of only advantages.

4 forward weapon slots, 4 tac consoles, and a COM and LTC tac with a 14 turn rate and up is all any ship needs to laydown major pain, regardless of the other stats. you just take a survivability hit by useing this vs anything else.

I don't know - I have one and I find it a blast to fly.

Granted, it's hull is squishy but it's (basically) an escort - IT'S SUPPOSED TO HAVE A FLIMSY HULL.

I think that's one of the things that people don't like about it - too many players are far too used to having tanky escorts - see the stupidly OP JHAS, and it's overwhelming popularity, for evidence. The Aquarius is, obviously, no tank and I am not saying that it doesn't 'lose points' in other areas too - I definitely agree that it's turn-rate should be buffed; it should NOT have the same turn-rate as something that is somewhat larger - thought using the tachyokinetic converter goes some way to remedy this.

Irrespective, so far as I am concerned, it's inability to tank notwithstanding, it's a damned fun ship to fly and it's satisfying to watch my little, underestimated, aquarius tear into enemy ships just as quickly, if not sometimes faster, than some of the other escorts in whatever instance I am in.

Just fix the boff layout, the boff layouts on a few fed ships are very lacking, just fix them cryptic...not hard to understand doesnt matter if klinks cry (i have klink toons aswell) (half of them glitch over to the blue just to have a good fight, with other klinks) that means some fed ships need fixed! Fix my fed ships and I will stay a fed player even when your romulans release... Why cant the Aquarius just be the modern defiant replacement a cloak would be a bonus.....

cryptic if you do anything at least fix the boff layouts

It's also fun to watch when players let perception bias completely cloud their reason.

Yes, that MUST be it. I must have been seeing things, and that rainbow-beam Prometheus was a figment of my imagination. Silly of me to think that I could possibly out DPS any other escort, even a rainbow-boat, in an Aquarius. I mean, EVERY other escort in the game is set up SO perfectly.

Saying that, it's also fun to watch when players let their anal-superior attitude completely cloud their reason.
