Which ship for each system?
Very interesting. I've almost finished with Gemini, whose X ship is a GC-X Fusion Engineer, so according to Ukiller's coaching that should have been the ship to go with. Now it just so happens that I started Gemini with a Storm, but later on got myself an Engineer as many of the missions involve protecting other ships.
So if the theory is true, you should have a Shock in Antares, an Engineer in Gemini, and a Storm in Mizar. Vega has an X Storm, Tank and Shock so just make sure you don't pick an Engineer. In Sol the only X is the Sniper and in Draconis the Defender so presumably you should be okay with any class, or at least equally handicapped.
So I think I'll take my boss's advice and get another Storm for Mizar, which will help with white missions anyway. The Tank in my hangar will probably get armoured up and equipped eventually. I've a lot of grinding to do.
Now don't go scrapping half your fleet just on the basis of this post. While I would not dream of doubting my Admiral's counsel, I've got through Antares in a Storm so it's obviously possible to go against this advice and succeed.
Disagreement already on which ship to go for, I love a healthy debate/good argument. I've just added a poll to the site (top right) so you can have your own say. I reserve the right to ignore the results completely and do what ever the hell I want.
