I realy like now the higher escort design because they look realy "bad".

Just the akira should be anywhere between cruiser and fighter maybe.
I have never seen the Akira as a "!fighter style" type of ship, myself.
For me, the Akira always was some sort of tactical cruiser, heavier than a prometheus but lighter than a Nebula.
Personally i don't understand why some (big) ships have to be forced to fill the role of light, fighter like ships. I mean how big is the Akira class ? Something between 300 and 450 meters?
To be honest i never understood the need to have a escort Class type ships in STO at all, i mean there was only one canon ship class classified as escort, the defiant type. (Which was just a lame try by the producers of DS9 to show how awesome creative they saw themselves
Forcing other ships (which where clearly not designed to be like that) into that role feels somehow strange to me.
Thank you for reading
