First off, I'm on board with this!
Secondly in First Contact, Geordy makes mention that the "Enterprise E is the most advanced starship." She was built specifically for combating the Borg as a battleship, but equipped to handle deep space exploration. All in all, her purpose was if she ever got stranded in a deep part of space like Voyager did and if she ever encounter serious trouble all she had to do was set phasers to "f*** you up!" and then go on her marry way. She's a battleship built to handle combat. Why do you think she was sent to the Romulan neutral zone? To be an explorer? H*** no! Starfleet sent their battleship in, in case the Romulans decided they wanted to pick a fight. What you nerds have to realize (I'm a nerd too so don't flip out on me) is that Starfleet's "We're explorers first" is really just a motto they say in good faith. They are ready for war and outfitted for battle, because they know that in reality, not everyone is going to buy into the Federation Utopia because it's impossible.
Now here are my recommendations for the Sovereign update. Universal BO slots. All of them. Let us choose what we want the ship to be by selecting what officer goes where. Another thing, design a special weapon that is exclusive to the Sovereign. Not anything like that stupid phaser Lance on that Gay-alaxy, but either a phaser or a torpedo that is unique to the ship. Some kind of heavy Quantum torpedo. Finally, let it carry ONE Federation fighter-craft. It doesn't have to become a carrier, but with two shuttle bays, I think it's reasonable to request a single fighter or maybe even two than it can deploy. Even just one of these things should do, but all three would make it more unique and divers which is what this game seems to promote when it comes to ship combat.
