If the Dauntless was to be made into an actual Federation ship, it would certainly classify as a science vessel. However, there wouldn't be anything unique about it. Other than the Slipstream drive, which could be the console it receives. Unlimited slipstream in sector space.
The ablative armor generator works pretty well in a pinch honestly. The armor reduces all incoming damage by 90%, equal to standard shields, and lasts for 10 seconds, making you virtually invincible for those 10 seconds. It's a good thing to pop and run so you can survive sort of thing.
Giving it dual cannons wouldn't make any sense either. It's not a warship, dual cannons are meant for warships not science vessels. That'd be like adding cannons to the intrepid or nebula classes.
