I agree that the Akira should be stronger than a Defiant (it certainly faired better on the Sector 001 battle but then the Defiant had a Klingon in command). The Akira was designed to be a carrier after all.

However, the Intrepid, Galaxy, and Defiant were put in the captain slots since they were series headlining ships. I think that is why the Defiant was made a higher tier ship and it makes sense from that perspective.

That said, as a tier 5 ship, having fighters as a special skill would be a coll Akira characteristic. By this I mean they come with the ship and recharge without further purchaces.
