I mean, the original Nebula from TNG was literally a kit-bashed Galaxy model.
Nebula's in STO can also use Cruiser Bridges, since yes, it's basically a Baby Galaxy.
There's a reason it has more Hull but a slower Turn then other Sci Vessels but above Cruisers, as well as a pretty good Engineering lean to it.
I love my Nebula exactly the way it is, personally. It's a little tankier than other sci-ships, and that Lt Commander Engi lets me keep EPtS rolling, while giving me access to EWP to complement GW3. Pop both along with a Deuterium Surplus, and you can wrangle up a whole lot of crowd control.
The two uni slots lets me put in two Tac Lt's, which allows me to spam BFAW coupled with APB, putting an extra debuff on all the garbage that I've netted.
I have yet to goof off with it in STFs, since that's mainly the domain of my escort or RSV, but it's been a lot of fun in other PvE scenarios.
