Taking a high maneuvering Prometheus takes considerable skill in piloting the ship. Of course wild (but precise) maneuvering only works well when your opponent has limited arcs. If he has 360 arcs too, then it is less effective. And the Base Prometheus isn't that defensive. Picard 9 gives you an extra action which can be defensive but making the prometheus harder to destroy takes something more expensive, like Hood Riker, Paris, Shelby, and if you're really nasty, Ablative armor. But that is a lot of points. Even Hood Riker is not bad with Picard 8 because of his extra defense dice, now with a little quality. Add Shelby and you get 3 dice with one BS conversion and a blank reroll which is surprisingly annoying.
