While the Home One is stronger than a Liberty Class ship, it still carries a weaker armament and is still not as sturdy, fighter filled, and effective as the MC80B. Power to shields helps with his bonus to give himself longer survivability facing ISD2s, while focus fire can be both beneficial and bad for targeting big ships at an instant, such as a Praetor or SSD. In the Galactic Voyager, he's just a fleet bonus-giving MC90, which is nice to have free. His bonuses are a deal breaker, giving a +25% health and +10% shield increase in combat, while not at great as Garm Bel Iblis', make any fleet much stronger defensively. He additionally grants a 25% discount for building shipyards and capital level ships, letting the New Republic field together more defenses and shipyards, which can be useful for making more defensive fleets and production ability, especially in Era 5 with the Viscount.
