Won't disagree on that, though like others have said I really don't see this happening at least not soon.
another ship we need in game, that was still in use during the dominion war is the Sioux(sp?) class
despite its small miranda style hull she was a war ship with forward cannons and a rear mounted turret(point defence system, best view of this class in any star trek is tng episode where kelsy kramer plays captain of a ship stuck in a time loop for 80 years, as the ship exits the temporal rupture and collides with enterprise you can clearly see the ships point defence cannon. this a ship that should be in game at about tier 3 or 4, in episode of ds9 when federation fleet retakes ds9 several sioux class ships can be seen in fleet along with miranda's.
It's Soyuz class, and we don't know that it was in service during the Dominion war. For all we know it was retired after it came out of that rift. And we also don't know what those modifications were. For all we know it was an upgraded sensor package so they could do a little long range spying of the Klingon boarder. I'll have to take your word on the DS9 fleet that retook the station in Favor the Bold, because I just watched that episode this past weekend and don't recall seeing any Soyuz class ships but I wasn't really looking for them.
