Answers to 1, 2, 4, and 5:

It's a video game. Stop trying to integrate gameplay mechanics with the story.

Answer to question 3: The USS Defiant was intentionally designed as a warship, specifically designed for hit and run tactics. It has the strongedt weapons because it was designed to have them. The Escort class wouldn't even exist if not for the Deep Space 9 series laying down this guideline. The reason it turns faster than other ships and can travel in reverse faster is because the ship is significantly smaller than normal ships. The laws of physics still apply when it comes to factoring how much energy is needed to move mass. Larger mass = slower ship.
