SEARCH SO FAR
I've looked through the stickies above, for commonly suggested ideas. I've also searched the forums for faction suggestions. I've even looked for suggestions to do with astrometrics.

No one before has suggested what I'm about to suggest:

REQUEST No.1
!! PLEASE CONSIDER GIVING US A FACTION SHIP WITH AN ASTROMETRIC BONUS! PLEASE? !!

THOUGHTS
There. I've gotten it out of my system. Here's the rational:
Most (if not all) of the faction ships are awesome to fly.

*Who doesn't like the Gallente Navy comet for example?
*Or who doesn't love to zip around in a Dramiel with a MWD?

But ..... since some numpty went ratting in the one-of-a-kind Gold Magnate (and lost it forever), and since insurance doesn't replace the full value of these faction gems, few actually use the faction ships for combat AND almost all of the faction ships are designed for combat (except perhaps the shuttle and the very rare yachts). (Now before anyone replies to this last comment saying "I use my faction frigate all of the time for combat" please try to focus on the overall idea here and not individual comments).

I thought since there were currently no faction ships with astrometric bonus's, but there are ones with missile bonus' and nos bonus' and so on, wouldn't it be nice to have a faction ship with an astrometric bonus. Such a ship might actually be used (and risked) in run-of-the-mill everyday EVE astrometric operations, unlike most of the combat faction ship brethern.

If you're following the logic so far, and enthusiastic about the idea let me ruin it all by making another request:

REQUEST No.2
!! COULD YOU MAKE IT A JOVIAN SHIP?? !!

(Notice how cunningly I threw in a second, unrealistic request so that the devs would compromise and settle for the first request? Its a negotiation strategy.)

Cheers

You didn't read the post did you? I'll make my request a bit more obvious.

My second request was tongue-in-cheek; re-read my first request.
