This guy disqualifies himself by saying his design is meant as a gunship/battlecruiser/aircraft carrier, it sounds more like the perfect fanboy ship, but not like a serious attempt to design a Starfleet ship.
I think that the producers of "ST: 8" and various DS9 episodes recognized this and made it a medium cruiser which makes much more sense IMHO.
Live long and prosper
