Not really. STO does most of that by itself in how the game screws with the notion of a traditional aircraft carrier, and frankly the idea of a frontline warship able to field it's own squadron of supporting strike craft is not at all unheard of (Battlestars anyone?).

Also keep in mind that the Armitage in-universe is bigger than most cruisers (the base Akira measured in at around 500m in length, it's not a stretch to put the Armitage, or one of the variants, at pushing 600m or more), yet it's still an "escort".
