The consoles bring something to the fight, but in My eyes, it's more important to pick the best BOff layout, and that sometimes means picking the RA Ship.
I completely agree. While I love my Defiant Retrofit, it's a VA ship. It should be slightly more powerful than the RA escorts (esp. the Fleet Escort). I think it should be slightly upped in terms of power, since it's essentially a T6 ship (since it requires level 50 to fly).

I wouldn't mind if it had built-in Ablative Armour (that doesn't take up a console slot), since the original Defiant was equipped as such. Or at least make the cloaking device usable in combat. The AI ships in PvE can cloak at will, even during combat, why can't I? I could see how this might cause problems in PvP, but not in PvE. Enable it in PvE, keep it the way it is now for PvP.
