The idea behind this ship is that while it *can* fight, it prefers to run or disengage from any encounter in which it does not have the clear advantage. It is faster than a Fury Interceptor in realspace, it is faster still in the Warp, and it is slippery as a fish even when it is somehow cornered.
The Expeditious Prosperity is obviously optimized for Trade endeavours where time matters. However it's not too shabby at Exploration either, or even a little bit of Cold Trading on the side.
They say that in the equation of speed vs. armor vs. firepower, you can only choose two. Well, this ship chose speed twice.
