Bay D9 Escape pod from the federation Makarra

Hey Guys this is my first (Uploaded) ship mod. It is supposedly an Escape pod. After in game testing It I have decided it is a bit too OP so i will be creating a less OP version soon. Here are a Few pics:

Update 1
I have gotten a few private messages messages saying people have seen the hull before. It was taken off of google images under allowed for commercial use and editing, like most of the other hulls I use. I just don't have the skill to make a custom hull, or the software.

Update 2
I have nerfed the ship. There is no longer a Vulcan, but a chain lazer mk.1. all systems have been nerfed. Health is twenty. You only have a drone recovery arm. Drones are now system repair and beam 1.

Just a little OP? This is ridiculously OP. Can't say much about it, but basically everything needs to be nerfed

That's not nerfing, that's making the ship literally unplayable. Why not give it no reactor power while you're at it?

5HP means the first random event that goes wrong will kill you instantly.

If you want to nerf it properly, remove the Pre-igniter, the reloader, the drones and the vulcan. In fact, replace the Vulcan with something like a dual laser, and maybe give it a low-power attack drone (beam or laser, either will do)
Also, reduce shields to 1 layer, engines to 4 bars, power to two bars, drones to 2 bars... basically put the systems on the same level as starter ships.
Yes, even though it's an escape pod.

Honestly what would be best would to strip it of all it's systems and start from scratch. You probably want to know the play style of your ship. Is it a boarding ship, or is it a drone carrier, etc. I would advise looking at ships by Dryeagle and taxiservice, so you can get an idea of what's balanced but still fun to play.

Thanks for the help. I have been getting mods off this forum for a while so i decided to contribute. I know my first few ships are gonna suck, but thanks for helping me fix this one.

No problem. Also, theDoomBox has the right idea. Tell yourself what you think the ship should be about. Is it designed to board other players or is it designed to carry drones? Do you want it to be a stealthy evader or a glass cannon?

I'm guessing myself that because it's an escape pod it's supposed to be built around evasion and not taking hits at the expense of everything else. A good ship for a pacifist run, but not good for any other sort of run. After all, you have called the ship an escape pod.
So yeah, find out what you want the ship to be then build it around that.
