Indeed... The "most canon" texts I have been able to find specifically categorize the Sabers, Akira and Norways as hardcore Escorts, while the Defiant and Prommie are pure warships... Nothing more, nothing less.
Categorizing the prometheus as a Carrier is kinda ... an odd idea... And the "multi class" idea seems odd too as there would have to be made several alterations to the ship both in terms of weapons layout and hull strength... It DOES hav the Sci thing thoug, buuuuutttt....
