Some can be on par , but the superior bit can be debated , as there is also the user playstyle & equipment that's in question .
As we now have it, it seems that Starfleets most powerful vessels are all of alien (or future) design. How did this ever get passed off by CBS?
Actually that's a bit incorrect .
The Jem'Hadar Bug ship is at least 30+ years old design
Same w/the Galor .
I have no idea what the time-stamp / date is on this version of the Chel Garrett -- but per canon it could also be a 30+ year old ship .
But if you think that's ridiculous , consider that in the first 2 years of the game , the King of Cruisers was the Excelsior ... , a ship from the 23rd century and something that was at least 100 years old .
The same ship is soon to be a "contender" once more when it's T5 version gets released .
Now tell me if that makes any sense ?
As to CBS ... yeah , right , whatever , they are soooo involved .... .
But ... having said all that , from a player POV , I am glad that some of the "old molds" (Excelsior , Galaxy and others) get a "refit" in their T5 Fleet version to make them viable again (even as the poor Galaxy get's gimped again w/weak fire power) .
In the end , STO stopped making sense on many fronts long ago .
