Well the free VA1 ships are all refit versions. They have one special skill but most of them are weaker as the normal RA ships.

Cruiser: Galaxy Class retrofit
Special skill: Saucer seperation

Science: Intrepid Clas retrofit
Special Skill: The armor from the Voyager final "Endgame"

Escort: Defiant Class retrofit
Special Skill: cloaking device

As an Engineer I prefer the RA Assault cruiser. This ship has more weapon slots and better BO slots than the Galaxy retrofit. Also the saucer seperation looks nice but is useless in PvP. There you become an easy target.
