Cdr Eng
Lt Eng
LtCdr Tac
LtCdr Sci

4 fore/4 rear weapons
4 devices
3 eng consoles
3 sci consoles (or remove one sci console for a special ability, if it doesn't end up being a console ability)
3 tac consoles

39,000 base hull (same as all other cruisers)
1.0 shield modifier (ditto)
6 base turn rate (same as galaxy-x)
Yeah I like this idea. I don't think it would be OP at all but when it was brought up in other threads that shall not be named, some seemed to think it was. Of course many of those also cited the OPness of carriers as evidence so I take that with a grain of salt.

To be realistic, I think the layout viper suggested is closer to what we'll get because I think it would ruffled fewer feathers.
