The MVAM makes the Prometheus cool and a very dangerous enemy potentually plus has an extra Sci console slot and a higher sci BO slot making it the science escort.

Logically, the Akira should be the one with 3 Eng, 2 Sci, 4 Tac consoles to balance out what already is in game. Following the precident set already, the Eng BO should be made LTC. Given the size, crew should be kept at 200 which is the current max on escorts.
Yep, completely agree. I'd love to see the Akira with a Lt.Cmdr. Engineering slot.
