Yes they have, take a look on Very Rare Mark XII.

Something isn't right here, and it's not just the less breathing room with warp core breeches.
After reading all the posts here, you're simply not listening. I have a Scimitar, I'm not full on Borg and Romulan Reputation yet, so my Build is still evolving. I use to die a lot like you are now, but after understanding the way this ship fly and spec my BOFFs right, I die only one or two times in ESFT, only because I lose attention to my Hull and Shield stats.
This is not a Cruiser! Don't expect to fly it like a Cruiser!

This ship decloak, fire like a beast, when aggro rises to much, you cloak and circle the enemy. If you don't like to play like this, well, this is not the ship you want... and... just because you don't like to fly like this, doesn't mean she is a bad ship.

Just for a comparison:
CE Elite Event with Scimitar: Died more than 10 times, but did a lot of damage to the entity.
CE Elite Event with My TAC Odissey: Died 2 times, did average damage.

See the difference?
