In the "classic forum vein":

What you're asking for kinda sounds like the Klingon Cruisers, more maneuverable less hull. Guess where you should start spending your time... Heck, you can even put DHCs on the Klingon cruisers instead of being limited to DBBs...

Personally, I'm not up for these ships. Escort weapons on an escort/cruiser hull with cruiser BOffs/consoles almost screams "pick the best of everything for my personal OP ship". Did I miss the part where you asked for the science ship's shield modifiers in there?

If we were to do "mid sized" ships (almost sounds like a Chevy Malibu in here), I'd be inclined to take a science ship, trade the shield modifier in for more hull, trade the integrated subsystem targetting out in favor of a 4th forward weapons emplacement (yeah, it's escort-level, but I don't necessarily want cruiser-level), and go from there...
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
