In Regenerative mode, its going to have additional shield resistance and the ability to siphon shields from multiple ship. In Tactical mode, its going to land every shot thanks to the accuracy boost and have a multiple target phaser lance. I'll say even in the hands of a poor player, it is still going to be a ship to be reckoned with.
With Cmdr Tac and Lt. Cmdr Sci slots, its going to be a crazy powerful ship in the hands of a good science officer. Just imagine this in ISE:
1. Gravity Well a bunch of spheres
2. Enable Tactical Mode
3. Phaser lotus + Cannon scatter volley + Torpedo spread
If attacked by multiple spheres, simply revert back to Regenerative Mode and take defensive actions.
