Alright, settle down people.  At least keep it marginally close to topic.
WE ARE HARD LIGHT PRODUCTIONS. YOU WILL LOWER YOUR FIREWALLS AND SURRENDER YOUR KEYBOARDS. WE WILL ADD YOUR INTELLECTUAL AND VERNACULAR DISTINCTIVENESS TO OUR OWN. YOUR FORUMS WILL ADAPT TO SERVICE US. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

Not only is it a reskin, it's a reskin with subsystem and weapon rearrangement, not to mention a different TBL entry! How much would you be willing to pay for this great ship?

Actually, no. The hull sections of the head and engine are the same, basically, but the internals are much newer. Although, the engine section is largely untouched (except for a tune-up) since it was working okay anyway.

It's the fact that the ship is partially prefabricated which makes it more appealing to Command; it can be pumped out faster and at a lower cost. Considering the plot of WoF, it would be preferable to the more expensive Aeolus.

The other reason is, Aeoluses have to have a ton of ultra-compact (and ultra-expensive) systems to support their high turret density. Peleuses are less condensed, so they don't need that extra compactness. Besides, Peleuses are better against capships than Aeoluses, thanks to its forward MGreen.
