Um, sure, that's why her canon designation is "Explorer Type-2"...

The Sovereign is not a "battleship", it's a successor to the Galaxy. The Federation does not believe in the concept of battleships.

In fact, I think the STO designation of "Assault Cruiser" is misleading a lot of people due to the aggressive tone of its name. Would've been better if it had been switched with the "Star Cruiser".
