Maybe the light and heavy cruiser classes should get some special abilities to distinguish them more form each other.
Light cruisers could get maybe Emergency Power to Engines as ability and Heavy Cruisers could get Something like Transfer shield strenght. (just an idea.)

I also wanted to make the factions ships more unique and less interchangeable.
So i thought that light cruisers would be a good alternative to those dogfighting ships, because i still think that the introduction of the Defiant Class was a big mistake from the producers of DS9 and thus should stay one time experiment by starfleet.

Well I basicly agree with the more or less beeing a mistake, but people like the ship and would want to have it. So it HAS to be in the game after all...

But you are right, they wouln't call their ships "escort" i just wanted to be shure that everybody understands what i am talking about.
Ok, then lets Call the "light escorts" "light Warships" and "heavy Escorts" "warships" and "cruisers" "heavy Warships"

So do you think that raptors should be "light warships" and birds of prey "warships"?
And yes, the D7 should be a heavy warship, maybe it could get something like emergency power to weapons as a ability, or so.

Live long and prosper.
Well about the Bird of prey, there should be a version in the "light warship" and another version in the "warship" area. And with that categorys we could put the d7 into the "warship" area...
