Dear devs: What did the T5 Akira give away in exchange for its hangar bay?

I don't know if you've noticed (most players never touch the KDF at endgame so its a common issue) but your Atrox is really just a reskin of the Vo'Quv, which is actually based on a Sci vessel, and NOT a cruiser. That's why you only get 6 weapons. Look at it this way, your Atrox gives up turning to get 2 fighter bays. The Armitage sacrifices a Lt. Commander Tac power, which equates to a loss of DPS, presumably made up for by using one fighter bay and getting a bit more durability.
As far as the console, like all Fed consoles their use outside of (and even in) pvp is questionable, and in the Torp PDS console's case I would say its particularly underpowered when compared to the Phaser version, longer range and all.
