Vulcan
Wells
Armitage
Mobious
and of course a bunch of fleet ships that have Lt. Cmd slots that are not in line with there class.... and all the lockbox ships go with out saying.

The original designers of STO... placed 2 Lt. Cmd and a Commander boff slot of the ships class on each ship. Look at the allowed ships these are the LAUNCH ships... it Cryptic employees that had there hands on things well after launch that are responsible for bad ideas like the mvam. IMO I would say it was around the time of MVAM and Ecel that the devs lost there way, and started working with no real plan for future balance.
