As for being tier 5... eeeh I'm not sure how I feel about that. It's a rather small ship.
Birds-of-Prey, Raptors and Defiant-class escorts average 150m, and all have T5 variants, whereas the NX-01 is 255m long.

Size is not the problem for having a T5 starter ship, its the technology that's able to be loaded on them. I may have made the original post, but I myself am divided over either the Constituition or NX-01 getting a full retrofit.

Realistically, if I allowed a retrofit, they'd all turn into T5 Science Vessels given their size and weight. The Constituition would be a bit more tanky (less than the Nebula), and the NX-01 would be the T5 science vessel that can load dual cannons, if this format is to be followed.
