In X3AP, the Mercury is my overall favorite TS for player flying. If you choose to play without abusing the Market, or using other fast money schemes, most game starts will require the player to board an inexpensive trade ship and make some trades. If you are stuck flying a freighter for the early hours of your game, the Mercury is a fantastic choice.
The common thought is "Average at everything, Master of None", but the Mercury and others in it's line are masters of handling. This give the pilot the feeling of flying something that responds well to steering commands. This is easy to overlook, unless you are the one behind the helm.
With good shields, great cargo, above average speed, and a forward view with no visual obstruction, I tend to see the Mercury as "Above Average at Everything, and Master of Flight".

This ship will make you rich. Stupid, Filthy, Rich! Let me explain. I got a Lotan and tricked it out. I sent it to the Trade Station in Herron's Nebula, and was fortunate enough to get a Cargo Messenger ranked CLS2 pilot. His first job was to gather some stuff in Herron's and Power Circle, then off to Seizewell for big sales. This ship is so slow, by the time he made it to Kingdom End, he was a Logistician. Somewhere in Rolk's Drift, he was so bored that he started playing the market. By the time he made it Queen's Space, he was a Market Billionaire. He docked my Lotan at the Trading Port and told me to "Shove It", as he did not want to work for me any more.
Fine, I'll just have the autopilot finish the run. Which it did, the goods were delivered. Unfortunately, when I told the autopilot to do the run again, it cursed me, and ejected its computer chips into space and crashed them into an asteroid in Power Circle.
As any dedicated company owner would, I boarded the ship to make the deliveries myself. By the time I made it to Three Worlds I was so bored I was playing "I Spy", with myself. In the two weeks it took to fly from the South Gate to the East Gate in Kingdom End, I learned a lot about Biological Micro-Organisms, Construction Equipment, and Terran High-Tech Goods. I started playing the Seizewell Market, and by the time I made Queen's Space, I too was a Billionaire.
I had a Vulture meet me at the Trading Station, and now I feel like I'm flying with my hair on fire.
When ever I click on a Lotan I hear Betty say, "The Lotan is a ship that is so slow, you will likely decide to eject from the air lock without a spacesuit rather than fly it."
This ship looks sharp, and would seem to be the pinnacle of player trade ships. It appears to be something a Trader could really roll some goods with, but this ship is just too slow. I know it is not the slowest, but it certainly feels like it.
Having them in your automated fleet is fine, just don't let your pilots rank up enough to play the market and quit. If you can afford a Super TS, you probably are past the point of needing to fly them yourself. If you want a Super TS you can fly, go for the Drake.

I used it for mining for some time. It's OK for this but the lack of internals hurts it.

This ship doesn't use the *beautiful* Perseus skin, but a far uglier one which looks like someone inflated it
