No Idea if you or Cryptic(ingame) got it wrong though.

It's been covered already, but from the game's perspective the Negh'var is the counterpart to the Galaxy.

If you take a look at the cruiser line up for the fleet retrofits, you'll see the pattern that somewhat already existed:

Sci Focused
Corsair & Star Cruiser

Tac Focused
Vor'cha & Assault Cruiser

Eng Focused
Negh'var & Galaxy-R

If you look even closer you'll notice that the Sci, Tac and Eng versions of each of these ships BOFF layouts is something you could recreate using the C-store versions of the different Ody & Bortasqu ships.

So these ships are a way to get a very specialized version of these BOFF layouts "for free" with a different skin (and generally better turn rates, sorry Gal-R the joke's on you!!)

They have less customizability (or zero) and generally less shields, in some cases (mostly KDF side) they have less hull.
