Except the federation Cruiser is not a battleShip nor was it ever designed with that sole purpose in mind. In the confines of STO the Devs have made the Federation Cruiser more Defensive in nature.
Star Fleet is a psuedo military construct built for exploration first and foremost with defense of its members second and while a Cruiser can bring firepower to a conflict, that application of damage is not its primary function.
Really? Children on a BattleShip? Families on a vessel of war?
