If you were, it was indeed not entirely representative.
When both ships are moving the BoP has a better chance to be missed due to its higher defensive bonus.
There was a saying from the "inventor" of the historic battlecruiser concept, Sea Lord John Fisher "Speed is armor".
Even though history did not entirey agree with him, at least in this game there is some truth to it.
Both actually a stationary alpha strike and a mobile one. The BoPs strength in speed and maneuverability came to a real nice shine while moving. Much harder to hit, much harder to damage.
