In fact, I think you'd only have to upgrade the BO power slots. The biggest difficulty I discovered with my Nova at the later Captain-levels was that I did not have enough BO abilities. Pretty much everything else (except for the hull) can be upgraded with Mk-gear, after all.
Weapons Slots can't be upgraded through consoles or MK Gear either.

Based on that, I would be in favor of upgrade ships being given 1 additional weapon slot, fore and aft. If you do that, and upgrade the BO slots, then you'd have some workable low level ships. Would the hull still be weak? Sure, but your BOs can overcome that.
