There are multible ships that were named or indicatet to be cruisers onscreen that endet up in diffrent categorys.... wich is a good thing, we'd have 90% cruisers in the game if it were diffrent.

For the Hegh'ta, just judging from the looks... it IS a cruiser, so the K'vort can easyly work as a Hegh'ta skin although beeing a named "Cruiser" in Yesterdays Enterprise...

The Defiant is roughly turtle-shaped, meaning it is rather sturdy and compact while the Hegh'ta has a spindly thin hull with large yet not really thick wings.
So it's like saying an antenna mast must be togher than a truck because the mast is bigger.

Na.... honestly.... the main Hull is build prety massive... the ship is prety large.... and just look at the fleet escort or.. well a lot of ships look more fragile and have more hull.

The reason for the Hegh'tas low hull is game balance, not less, not more. I'd love to see a version that... matches its viusals better... but I can live with that basicly...
