3. It can potentially cloak (for Defiant), or use Multi-Vector mode (for Advanced Escort)
4. 5 tactical console slots (for both ships)

I'm probably missing something here, but still, that's a LOT of advantages they both have compared to the Patrol, which has a bit more hull and such, but it means very little, so letting it have an ensign universal, gives it SOME extra advantage compared to the other two.

See above.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!
