Its got plenty of penalties to it with this design to make up for its very good positives. Low crew, low hull, loss of 1weapon (aft), loss of 1 tactical console, runs at a lower shield modifier than other ships.

I think dropping the special console would be a good idea. This ship is pretty darn nice without it. Making it even nicer would be kinda over-killing it.

Also could probably copy this and paste it over to the KDF for their new BoP.
I like the name "Cutlass", or maybe "Katana"? Now for the Stats:

Hull: 26000
Front: 5
Rear: 1
Crew: 30

The hull looks good, even if it makes it have a glass jaw compaired to the BOP and all of the escorts in the game. Again, the maxx fore weapons is 4, not 5. Where do people come up with this? Also, you didn't remove one weapon slot from the aft, you removed two. Just stay with 4 fore, 3 aft. Explain the reduction of crew from 50 at Tier 2 to 30 at tier 5? Considering that this ship is already weak on hull, that loss of 20 crew members does a number on how fast the hull repairs.

I am comfortable with the BOFF slots, even though I would think that a Lt. Commander and Ensign Universal BOFF slot would be better, but that is just my personal preference.

Device Slots: 1

Consoles (9 total)

Engineer 3
Science 3
Tactical 3

Why only one device slot? No ship has only one device slot. This should be two. Console slots are good, and are not a set-up seen on any other escort, so that gives the ship a unique character, very nice!

Turn rate of 16 is slower than the Defiant(I think the Saber is smaller, but I digress), but faster than the other escorts. The impulse and modifier you gave it makes it faster than a BOP. I am still deciding on what I think about that. The Inertia rate is just above most cruisers, and much slower than science ships. I think that should be bumped up to match other escrots.
