Yes and no.
The Aries is a very vulnerable ship and can be preyed upon by
relatively small ships.

The NFR is not so easily killed.
Want high productivity? Aries.
Want higher security? NFR.
What kind of "security" does a Neutronic Refinery give you? Security by mass that can be shot? Nah...
That leaves the sdsf.
I'm liking the idea of Merlyn deleting them in game. :twisted:
One reason I like the idea of an in game filter is that if the sdsf
is needed and it is built with a respectable engine, it isn't just
a slot filler. The more I think about this, the more I like it.

Then, we just up the cargo hold of the sdsf to say... 300?
Small, useful, deleted when abused.
I don't like the idea at all that a ship you CAN build must not be build. It adds unneccessary complexity. And I doubt that there is a fair way how to deterimine when a ship is junk and not needed and when not. Possibly the SDSF is just needed as the external storage bay for a LDSF or so - and thus engines are neglected.

As I said, against relatively small ships.
An Aries gets either captured or destroyed by ships like a W.Falcon.
Whereas versus a NFR, the W.Falcon gets destroyed or captured.
It's a difference worthwhile to some.

Personally, I don't like the sdsf at all.
Understanding is a three-edged sword.
Your side,
their side,
and the truth.
