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
A medium cruiser with still a **** load of torpedoes stored onboard for a ship her size
Beside that there are a lof of cryptic designs I think are horrid, just way to many gimmicks, no canon ships was sever seen using gimmicks (kitbases excluded). From the old connie to the Sovy none had parts on it that you could not give some reason for being there.
STO ships just are weird has parts on there that simply cannot fit any purpose, their design is way to complex to ever be handy to mass produce.
Don't even get me started on the fleet escort I can name a dozen strong reasons why their designs are flawed badly.
However this is a game so to each what he or she desires, I will fly what I like you fly what you like.
