Take the plot and hero ship out of the equasion and i'd give this to the Lakota.
Merely on weapons coverage.

Take alook at the defiant in game it has a powerful frontal assault but weak at the rear you have to use hit and run tactics against the big ships whereas the Excelsior fore, aft or sideways has sustained firepower
^^ This is more than likly dead on. Problem is, as 'canon' goes, the defiant at stock is stronger than the excelsior.
