The base versions of these ships don't do anything for me, their stats are typical and whilst Cmd/Sci Intel seating is powerful it's not enough to persuade me. The fleet versions are significanlty better with a shield modifier up to 1.4. These ships will be quite nimble but I don't see them offering anything different to most sci ships in the game. We will have to wait and see if the console and trait are any good, from past experience the console will look great but have very limited effect, unless the passive is +50 EPG or something I doubt it will be used. The trait may well be better than the console and it sounds like the S'ona Isolytic Tear trait, which can be buffed with enough EPG. Finally, the appearance. The Fed ship is somewhat meh to me and the less said the better about the KDF ship, not at all pretty or exciting. Of course that's a personal opinion but from discussions with others in fleet chat it seems it is an opinion shared by more than two of us!
